At NorthPointe we celebrate marriage as a vital part of our community and are committed to strengthening and supporting marriages. It’s our desire to encourage couples while guiding them away from unhealthy habits, and toward a deeper understanding of God’s plan for marriage. We offer a variety of events throughout the year that are committed to inspiring couples to grow closer together, and closer to God. Whether it’s at our Married Couples’ Conference, Marriage Retreat, one of our fun Game Nights, or a dessert get-together, you’ll meet other couples who want the same thing as you: to see their marriage succeed and be as God-honoring and fulfilling as He intends it to be.
Many couples may have what they would describe as a fair or even good marriage but feel “stuck” in their relationship. At the end of the day both spouses are exhausted and either fall asleep watching TV or fall into bed only to awake to start their routine all over the next day. Marital growth seems like a distant dream. Why just survive when you could be thriving in your marriage? We want every married couple to thrive together, so we have trained coaching couples ready to come alongside couples who are struggling or want a marital “tune-up.”
Stepfamilies don’t have a family tree–they have a family forest! When a couple remarries and enters into a stepfamily, there can be much confusion about the couple’s relationship. Confusion sets in as the children become the main focus, and parenting styles collide. Marriage is a commitment to one another, and to each other’s families, for better and worse. You will meet with experienced couples who will challenge you to read, discuss, and put in place key principles to help you in your change.
Weddings are for a day; marriage is for a lifetime! Marriage is perhaps the most complex human relationship. The process of joining two people in a relationship for life takes work! Too often couples are not equipped to deal with the challenges they face in marriage. NorthPointe requires couples married by our pastoral staff receive premarital counseling. We want your marriage to last a lifetime, so we have trained couples ready to walk with couples through engagement into their first year of marriage.
