Marriage Ministry

EBC_Marriage Ministry 2.png

Begin, Build, Bring Glory
Marriage was designed by God to be the core of the family structure. When marriages thrive, families grow strong, the church bears much fruit, and God is glorified! We long to see couples come to a clear understanding of this beautiful purpose for marriage and see their relationship bring Him honor.

With this purpose in mind, we want to partner with you as you invest in your marriage.  Below you will find multiple opportunities to take advantage of throughout the year. Please take time to explore how you and your spouse can utilize this ministry to the fullest and please contact us if we can help you in any way.

Ongoing Events

Marriage Mentorship
The mentoring process is the core of our Marriage Ministry! We have highly trained mentor couples who want to walk with you, teach you, and encourage you in your marriage. Please take a moment to read over our frequently asked questions and see if this opportunity might be a good fit for your marriage. 

Small Groups
Strengthening marriages for a lifetime happens in community. A couple that is invested in a Small Group has a built-in support system in their lives that will encourage them and help them grow.  

Discipleship Classes
Throughout the year, we offer numerous discipleship classes to help strengthen marriages. These classes generally meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00. 

Pre/Early Marriage Equipping
We long to see each marriage begin on a strong foundation. Our equipping effort consists of two important components of mentorship and preparation courses. If you're interested please click below to take your next step.

We have a team of staff pastors as well as a professionally licensed counselor on our team available for those who may be in need of dedicated assistance in their marriage. Click below to take your next step and get more information.

Upcoming Events

marriage conference

Each year we offer a marriage conference for our church and our community. This yearly conference is led by highly trained speakers and generally takes place in the fall. This is a great opportunity for couples to spend some dedicated time investing in their marriages. Be on the lookout for more information coming soon.

Live date night

Continuing the intentionality of “dating” your spouse, we will engage in “Live Date Nights.”These will occur 2-3 times per year and will be held on our Jackson campus. This will be a large group setting in which we will have various forms of live entertainment for couples to enjoy together. Be on the lookout for our next event. 


It’s vitally important to continue “dating” your spouse to keep the romance alive and we want to help! Two to three times each year we want to offer you the opportunity to drop off the kids and enjoy a night of fun. We will “design” a night that will provide a fun night with interactive questions and conversation topics. Be on the lookout for our next event.
