MARRIAGE

“Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” – 1 Corinthinans 13:4-8

Asbury’s Marriage Ministry understands that it’s crucial to start a marriage with a firm foundation, but the work doesn’t stop at “I do.” Life throws many ups...kids, vacations, job promotions….and downs….fluctuating finances, unexpected illness and aging parents. We help you follow Jesus’ example of love during any of these life stages by providing opportunities to surround yourself with other Godly couples of all ages, events to strengthen your friendship, advice on how to deepen your intimacy and moments to grow your relationship with God...together.

Marriage Milestones

One of the most important steps in our lifelong discipleship model is Marriage Milestones! At Asbury, we believe your commitment to your spouse reflects your dedication to being followers of Jesus Christ. To honor your intentional Christ-like commitment, we celebrate by:

  • Recognizing Marriage Milestones (50+ years) every week in our worship services,
  • Setting aside one Sunday in April to honor Asbury couples (married 50+ years) in the 9:30 worship service with a delicious brunch to follow, and...
  • Printing 5-year milestone anniversaries in the quarterly Tidings magazine.

Couple-to-Couple Ministry

Every great success requires preparation! Asbury’s Couple-to-Couple ministry provides engaged couples with the opportunity to interact with trained marriage advocates who have faithfully endured marriage in a Christ-like manner.

Couples meet for 4-8 sessions before their wedding to discuss what makes a strong, lifelong Christian marriage. Conversations are strictly confidential. Topics include: expectations, goals, finances, in-laws, roles and responsibilities, communication, intimacy and conflict resolution.

Please note: All couples whose wedding is officiated by an Asbury pastor must participate in Couple-to-Couple.

Weekend to Remember

Every February, Asbury couples attend Weekend to Remember, a getaway hosted by FamilyLife Ministries at a beautiful South Tulsa hotel. A weekend filled with marriage experts relevant teachings and lots of laughter, couples invest in and strengthen the foundation of their marriage — whether it’s firm, fragile or completely fragmented.


Couples learn how to:
  • Address issues as they arise
