Marriage & Family

The Door of Hope Christian Church Marriage & Family Ministry will provide Bible Studies, Fellowships, and Workshops to equip husbands and wives to build and maintain meaningful and significant relationships with The LORD and one another, that will positively impact their marriage and parenting.
We need a team of faithful believers who are passionate about preserving the institution of marriage between one man and one woman and fostering healthly family relationships between parents and children.
The people involved in our Marriage & Family Ministry must be ready to help people grow personally and enjoy the opportunities to celebrate with their peers and family.
We need people who are compassionate, caring, and willing to listen with the mind to understand and support couples, families, and individuals in need. As well as those who enjoy making new friends.

Pastor Marty is available to perform wedding ceremonies for engaged couples.
Prospective couples will need to complete a 10 week premarital counseling program entitled "Prepare/Enrich" with Pastor Marty and Heather prior to the wedding ceremony. Sessions are scheduled with individual couples by Pastor Marty & Heather.
"With the divorce rate over 50% it is our desire to see marriages last, especially within the Christian Church. Not only do I want to see marriages last, but I also want couples to experience lasting joy throughout their marriage. That's why I require the Prepare & Enrich classes for couples. The strategies, skills and understanding of relationships couples receive through these 10 one hour sessions is invaluable. I'm confident that you will be better prepared for the challenges of building and maintaining a meaningful relationship with your spouse for a lifetime of love!
If you're already married and want to enrich your relationship with your companion we invite you to participate in these sessions as well." Pastor Marty
There is an assessment fee for "Prepare/Enrich" for all couples. Non-members of D.O.H.C.C. also give the minister an honorarium.

We believe Marriage is an ordinance of the Church and has been established and ordained by God. The Door Of Hope Christian Church recognizes marriage as exclusively the godly and legal union of one man and one woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. (Gen. 2:24, Matthew 19:5, Mark 10:7, ICor. 7:3-5, Eph. 5:21-33, Heb. 13:4)
