Marriage 911

Providing help and hope for crisis marriages.


A Marriage Mentoring program.  Providing help and hope for crisis marriages - even with an unwilling spouse, by coming alongside the person who is trying to save their marriage with resources that help keep the willing spouse on the road to reconciliation.


Marriage 911 is focused on marriages in trouble, where pain is escalating, and one partner wants to work on a major source of the problem - themselves.  Participants put together a 12-week plan with a mentor / accountability partner with Marriage 911 First Response workbook as a resource .  While it will likely take longer than 12 weeks for the marriage crisis to be over, Marriage 911 can be a positive step forward.  Participants ask a person of the same gender to act as their mentor and hold them accountable for the next 12 weeks.   Participants do their homework using the Marriage 911:First Response workbook.  They then meet with their sponsor to discuss the material together.  If the participant would like, Eternal Marriage Ministry will match them with a mentor partner.

Meetings last an hour to and hour 15 minutes.

What should I look for in a support partner?
Your mentor / accountability should have a strong personal relationship with Jesus Christ, attend church regularly, and commit to pray for your marriage.  Your support partner should have a marriage example worth following.  They should be willing to explore the hard issues affecting your relationship with your spouse, starting with your relationship with God.  A marriage crisis is more about you and God than it is about you and your spouse.
