RESTORE

Counseling: Some marriages need a tuneup; our Enrich section is for you. Other marriages need to be restored to how it used to be, and still others need to be recreated or made new. If that’s you, you came to the right place.

Our goal in providing Christian counseling is to help you identify areas for personal growth and to help you communicate more effectively. Our counseling is based on Biblical rather than clinical principles. We will meet with you 1-2 times before exploring other options for you, including licensed professionals.

Retreats: Christian marriage retreats are a great way to slow down and focus on each other. Trained staff will help you learn more about each other, resolve issues and hurts, learn new relationship skills, and give you practical tools for nurturing your relationship to become all that the Lord desires it to be.
