So You Want To Be A Marriage Disciple?

Come and join an army of couples that are making a difference in the lives and marriages of other couples. Working to make our Church and society stronger one marriage at a time.


Marriage Disciples are trained volunteer couples who accompany married couples who are struggling into a deeper understanding and living of the fullness God intended for marriage. This mentoring model was developed by Greg and Julie Alexander, who have themselves mentored over 4,000 couples. The Marriage Disciples process focuses on what the Alexanders call the six “Essential Elements for a Strong Catholic Marriage.” Marriage Disciples share their own stories and experiences, along with the teachings of the Catholic Church on marriage, in order to impart to mentoree couples, the practical tools needed to better understand and live out the sacrament of marriage. Marriage Discipling is not professional counseling nor is it a comprehensive approach to issues or problems facing various married couples, including psychological or mental health struggles, anger issues, addictions, family of origin wounds, etc. Some couples may need additional professional help beyond the scope of this mentoring ministry.

We also ask our Marriage Disciples to take an Oath of Fidelity to the Catholic Church, indicating their desire and intention to always speak and teach in accord with what the Church proclaims.
