Ministry Leader: Reverend Elton and Toni Ford

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, and thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

The Marriage Enrichment Ministry meets on Sunday mornings at 9:15 AM in the Word Center, Room 210. This ministry is designed to help Christian couples maximize the sacred union of a man and woman to fulfill God's purpose. This ministry teaches men and women how to communicate more effectively, recognize each other's needs, and work together to produce and maintain a spiritual household. The Marriage Enrichment Ministry includes pre-marital consultation, wedding facilitation, couples coaching, and marriage workshops.
