We believe in great marriages, and we are committed to helping all the members of our church be equipped to have the kind of marriage God desires for each one of them. This includes pre-marital education and counseling, marriage mentoring, and marriage counseling. In addition, we have a yearly seminar, Marriage Works, which brings in great speakers to share the lessons they have learned to have a wonderful marriage.

We have many couples involved who have been married for decades, as well as younger couples who have gotten off to a great start. If you are about to get started and want to prepare for your marriage, or if you would like to refresh and strengthen your marriage, check out what we have to offer!

Pre-Marital Counseling using the SYMBIS Assessment

You will complete the SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts) questionnaire, which will help you explore and understand your relationship and its many dynamics. You will then take a number of sessions to go over the results with a trained facilitator couple, who will help you process this information together and apply it to your upcoming marriage. The cost is $35.00 for the assessment.

Love and Respect Classes

We will occasionally use the Love and Respect DVD series by Emerson Eggerichs to have a series of discussion groups. They explore the need of the man for respect and the need of the woman for love and what to do if those needs are not met, and they react negatively in the “crazy cycle.”

Marriage Enrichment

Upon request, one of our marriage mentoring couples will meet with you for a one-time mentoring session or a season of mentoring (as the situation determines). You can contact our marriage ministry at marriage@gcffortworth.org
