WHAT IS A “FIRST RESPONSE” MINISTRY AND WHY IS IT CRUCIAL FOR A CHURCH?

What is a “First Response” Ministry?

What is your first response when someone tells you their marriage is in crisis? Let it be one that offers hope within 24-hours. Marriage 911 God’s Way 12-course offers help and hope–even with an unwilling spouse. This is a course that is used individually rather than as a couple, so it works even with an unwilling spouse.

Why is it crucial for churches?

Most churches have help for couples planning to marry, or even remarry. And, most churches have resources and classes if a marriage ends in divorce. But, few churches have support and resources when couples are in crisis or separated–especially if only one spouse wants to save the marriage. If you have a heart for marriage and would like to learn how to come alongside someone whose marriage is in crisis, the Marriage 911 Leader’s Guide and Leader’s Kit provides everything you need.

Shane and Kim’s church used their testimony to create a promo for their Marriage 911 Ministry. This church in Canada understands the power of a reconciled couple helping others reconcile.
