Question: I would like to start a marriage discipleship ministry at my church. Where do I begin?
Answer: I think you begin by talking to your pastor…let him know your passion, let him know your vision, let him know what you would like to do. I suggest you start very simply. Choose five couples in your church that you think have a fairly good marriage. Then, tell them because you think they have a healthy marriage that you want to have the experience of leading them through a marriage enrichment program. Next, you choose a program—you can choose from my materials or you could choose from other materials—and you take those five couples through the program.
At the end of that, one or two of them will say “Hey, we could lead a group like this.” You recruit them—You let them lead the next group and then you start another group. It doesn’t take long until you’re taking scores and scores of people through a marriage enrichment program.
