Do you want a better marriage? Do you want to grow in enjoyment of one another? Do you want to protect your marriage? Do you want to launch your marriage out of a stagnant pattern into a growth pattern? Do you want to get on the same page as your spouse so you can be more effective?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, join a Grace Marriage coaching group at Fourth Avenue!

Fourth Avenue is using Grace Marriage coaching groups as our marriage ministry structure. This is a ministry that desires to proactively protect and grow marriages. Marriage is foundational to the success of a family, church, and community. However, the busyness and demands of life make it difficult to be intentional. In Grace Marriage coaching, a couple makes a proactive effort to protect and grow their marriage by investing one day each quarter of the year to take a big picture look at their life and marriage. When a couple puts their marriage under the grace of Christ and intentionally works on it, it will be transformed into a more enjoyable and God-glorifying union.

Grace Marriage is…

  • An intentional, strategic, and proactive approach.
  • A time to establish and pursue goals together.
  • A wellness, protection, and growth model.
  • A chance to re-focus on positives and create a refreshing atmosphere.
  • An opportunity to address issues in a safe place.

You will…

  • Use biblical grace-based materials to spark creative thought.
  • Think, pray, and apply principles to your marriage and family.
  • Talk with your spouse, plan, schedule, and grow together.
  • Establish goals and proactively work toward them.
  • Share and receive insights with and from other couples.

Grace Marriage is not…

  • Marriage counseling.
  • A seminar or conference.
  • A traditional small group/class.
  • A place where you will be forced to share your deepest secrets.

The Foundation of Grace Marriage is…

  • Your marriage is secure when it is based on the foundation of the grace of Christ.
  • You are refreshed by the love and grace of God instead of beat up for your deficiencies.
  • When you both live according to grace and not your performance, you can identify issues and grow with no condemnation.
  • Marriage coaching is a positive approach focused on the proactive pursuit of your spouse as you extend grace to them.
