Greetings from Jay & Laura
We are excited to share with you an endeavor close to our hearts, our "Healthy Marriage Healthy Church" initiative, a virtual marriage ministry partnership with Celebrate Ministries. Harnessing the power of online communities and virtual meeting technology, this innovative program is designed to fortify children, companies, communities, and churches through three key components: Volunteer Training, Relationship Building Activities, and Marriage Coaching and Curriculum.
Healthy Marriage Healthy Church Key Components:
- Volunteer Training:
At the core of our initiative is the belief that empowered volunteers can be catalysts for positive change. We are committed to providing comprehensive training for individuals who are passionate about supporting healthy marriages within their church. These volunteers will serve as leaders helping couples navigate the challenges and celebrate the joys of married life.
- Relationship Building Activities:
Thriving churches and strong communities are built on healthy relationships. To foster this, we are providing a series of engaging activities aimed at bringing couples together in a positive and uplifting environment. These activities are designed to create opportunities for shared experiences and lasting connections.
Marriage Coaching and Curriculum:
Our initiative recognizes the need for targeted support in navigating the complexities of marriage. We have created marriage coaching courses and a carefully curated curriculum that covers essential aspects of a thriving marriage. Topics will range from effective communication and conflict resolution to building emotional intimacy and maintaining a strong connection over time.
To successfully launch and sustain this initiative, we are seeking support from individuals and organizations who share our vision for healthier, more resilient churches and communities. Your contribution will directly impact our ability to provide quality training, organize relationship-building activities, and offer valuable coaching and curriculum resources.

What We Believe...
Statement of Faith
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infalliable authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is only one true God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful men, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; that they are saved unto the resurrection of life and they are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.
Statement of Marriage
We believe that marriage is defined by God as being a covenant between one man and one woman.
Genesis 1: 27, "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Marriage should be a reflection of Christ to those around us.
Genesis 2:24, "That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh." Marriage is intended by God to be a thriving, lifelong relationship.
Celebrate Ministries exists to help busy couples stay happily married for life. We want to encourage couples to become like Christ through stimulating experiences, healthy lifestyles, and loving relationships.
