Helping people create happy, healthy, godly marriages.
The Everlast Marriage Ministry has over a hundred and fifty years of married life experience amongst our currently committed marriage mentors and God is adding to our experience and numbers all the time. We are couples who haven’t yet achieved the “perfect marriage” but are devoted and accountable to making our marriages glorify God to be a testament to our children and the future generations. We want this for all Christian marriages! We constantly train in our occupational settings to keep up to speed with the latest and more efficient ways to get the job done, right? Why would we not train to get better at being married? Yet most of the time we say “I DO” without having a clue how to actually “DO.” We get married, we start life after the honeymoon, and we realize that it’s harder than we thought, and often time we keep on going, hoping it will “work out”. Well if simple positive thinking actually worked, we would see a lot lower divorce rate! Many of us want our marriages to be successful, without the knowhow to accomplish it. Marriage is a relationship that we must invest time and energy into. It is a commitment that we must see through and nurture. To help our Body achieve this goal we offer the following:
God calls us to bear one another's burdens. He never meant for us to shoulder our problems by ourselves. He gave us the Holy Spirit and each other to help make this life an abundant life. Couples mentoring helps couples in all stages of marriage manage the natural ups and downs of married life everyone experiences by meeting with a mature married couple who has successfully resolved many of the same issues. Couples’ Support falls into three categories; helping couples prepare for marriage, repair their marriage, or maximize their marriage.
Prepare - This is to help newly married or soon to be married couples prepare for a lifetime with their spouse. They help couples prevent problems before they start. Couples will learn about each other though discussion, study and God’s word.
Repair - Everyone who is married hits a rough patch now and again. Sometimes it’s easier to work through conflict when we sit down with someone who has "been there and done that." Let's face it; there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Any couple that is stuck can ask to meet with a mentor couple with the goal of working through issues-both small and large. Our hope is that the couple that needs help gets the encouragement and support they need to make it through their rough patch while the two couples become great friends in the process.
Maximize - Ever heard the saying "if it ain’t broke, don't fix it?" When it comes to marriage, nothing could be further from the truth! Good times are the best time to make your marriage even better. Making adjustments when you have some momentum makes the whole process easier.

When was your last date night? We tend to forget to do the basics as we are hurled through a life and culture that is constantly bombarded with more and more distractions. We want to remind the couples in our Body to “remember to date”. We hope to offer fun and safe outings in which we can show our spouse the attention they desire, but to also have fun in a Christian environment with other believers.

Nehemiah 4:14b “Remember the Lord, who is great and awesome, and fight for your families, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your homes.”
It's all about becoming more like Jesus. When our identity is in Him, we walk in His freedom and power. This process is a life-long journey... and it wasn't designed to be done alone. When we join with a few men who want the same thing, we experience synergy. We become stronger and grow faster together than alone - the strength of the wolf is in the pack. Get connected and start experiencing momentum in becoming the man God created you to be...as son, brother, husband and father.
