Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. Matt. 19:6

The Church of the Redeemed of the Lord’s (CRL) Marriage Ministry is designed to build and strengthen marriages God’s way. Married couples benefit by gaining insight on how to handle specific situations the way the Bible teaches. This is a ministry of CRL and is part of the vision Dr. Jerome Stokes has for the ministry.

The marriage ministry staff believes that couples that participate in the ministry will notice a positive difference in their relationships.

Annual Marriage Retreat

Each year the Marriage Ministry sponsors a getaway vacation for married couples only. This ministry has proven to be very successful and many couples have rekindled the flames in their marriages, simply by getting away and fellowshipping and sharing with other couples. In addition to being able to enjoy a vacation, the couples also participate in workshops, when space permits.

Evening of Elegance

The Marriage Ministry also sponsors an “Evening of Elegance” each year. This is a formal event that allows married couples to enjoy a romantic evening of fine dining, soft Christian music, and excellent Christian entertainment.
