The overall objective is to support couples in building skills to
develop stronger marriages that will last a lifetime.
Northshore Christian Church places a high value on strong, healthy Christian marriages. Maintaining your spiritual growth is the best way to cultivate and sustain healthy marriages. We believe that being in a home group provides a consistent level of support and care for marriages.
Yet, there are times when couples need customized support for their specific areas of opportunity. Northshore's Marriage Ministry provides resources for couples that desire to prepare for, maximize or repair your marriage.
By using the marriage curricula created by relationship experts, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrot, we offer couples requesting support the opportunity to work with qualified mentor couples. The overall objective is to support couples in building skills to develop stronger marriages that will last a lifetime.
Note: Mentor couples are active members of a home group and it is strongly recommended for mentoree couples to do the same.
Couples who reach out for support with preparing for marriage, maximizing their marriage or repair their marriage will have access to the following:
Preparing for Marriage
Saving Your Marriage Before it Starts (SYMBIS) helps to build a marriage that will last a lifetime. Identify and overcome stumbling blocks to have a healthy, Christ centered marriage. SYMBIS is a comprehensive program that includes two parts:
- Attend a 5-week class with other couples planning for marriage, offered 2-4 times per year. Contact us for the next scheduled class.
- Complete individual assessments to identify areas of strengths and opportunities as you plan for marriage. Once you complete the assessments, you’ll meet with a certified mentor couple over 3 sessions to discuss your results.

Maximizing Your Marriage
Connect with other married mentor couples to make the leap from a good to great marriage! There will also be marriage enrichment classes available throughout the year.
Repairing Your Marriage
If you are a couple looking for hope and encouragement for your marriage, then we’ll connect you with a trained and qualified mentor couple. Learn from their experiences and ways they have created a loving and Christ-centered marriage.
There are times when couples need extra support from professional counselors. If this is the case, then our pastors will provide recommendations to professional counselors.
