Marriage Ministry

Whether you are a pre-married, married, or remarried couple; we are here to help you create a thriving marriage that lasts a lifetime.

MARRIAGE PASTORS

Moe and Paige Becnel are passionate about healthy life-long marriages. They married in 1989, and have been ministering to pre-married, married, and remarried couples since 2000. They have written books, spoken at marriage conferences and retreats, taught classes, and counseled couples for over 16 years.

OUR VISION

The vision of The Rock Marriage Ministry is to build and strengthen every marriage and family into the vibrant, passionate, one-minded relationship that God intended a marriage to be. We know that God ordained the beautiful covenant of marriage, and we know our adversary, the devil, is out to deceptively destroy every priceless thing that our loving God has made. The Rock staff places a very high value on helping you achieve God’s design of a healthy, life-giving, intimate marriage that models God’s passionate love for His church.

“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being untied with Christ,
if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any
tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-
minded, having the same live, being one in 
spirit and of one mind.”
 Phillipians 2:1-2

The Apostle Paul spoke those words to the church in Philippi, addressing the some strife and discord in the church. Yet, those words “by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind”  portrays a wonderful image of a loving, united, fulfilling marriage!

GETTING MARRIED? PREPARE FOR YOUR LIFE TOGETHER

Pre-marriage Education 
Everyone plans a wedding, but so few plan for a love-filled relationship.  Preparation can help you have a marriage that others envy.
If you plan to be married by one of the pastors at The Rock, you will be required to participate in a premarital counseling program. You can choose the one we offer (Prepare-Enrich) or another similar program. Couples who are being married by a Rock pastor and who elect to use another premarital counseling program should have their counselor submit a letter indicating the counseling program has been completed.
The Rock pastors reserve the right to refuse to marry a couple if he or she deems the couple is not ready for marriage or has serious concerns about the marriage.

Pastoral Counseling 
We are here to help fine-tune, rebuild, and strengthen your marriage and family.
