Marriage & Family

Strengthening Families and Marriages 

Our mission is to equip your marriage and family with skills and to provide the tools that will develop those skills to produce lifelong, healthy relationships. Whether you have great family relationships or have ones that aren’t so great, we want to encourage the good relationships you presently have, and equip you to build up the ones that need help. We would love to connect with you and show you how St. John can be a place where your whole family can grow together and grow closer to God. 

Marriage Education/Coaching

We educate couples, from all walks of life, on effective ways to resolve conflict, improve communication and enhance marital relations. We provide skills based education to prepare newly engaged couples for strong marriage relationships as well as enriching and strengthening marriage relationships no matter how long couples have been married.
