The MarriedPeople Annual Strategy Pack

The MarriedPeople Annual Strategy Pack is one year of proactive, strategic marriage ministry with resources that help any size church help couples connect.

This downloadable resource gives you everything you need to be strategic about creating a culture in your church that strengthens marriages. Our team produces a new Strategy Pack every year (available in late spring/early summer) so that your team has content that is always fresh, always new, but always part of your ongoing strategy for the married couples in your church.


The Strategy Pack =

4 Larger Group Experiences
+ 5 session Small Group Experiences
+ 4 Individual Couple Date Nights
+ 12 monthly EZINES (email newsletter/magazine)

That equals 25 touch-points to help couples connect and live out what we believe are the Core 4 Habits that help every couple’s marriage thrive!

​The Theme for the 2016-2017 MarriedPeople Strategy Pack is

and includes:

Our Small Group Experiences have one simple goal—to help couples connect. The Small Group Experience contains five sessions that can be done in a block of five weeks as one study, or interspersed throughout the year into existing small group studies.

The Small Group Experience includes:

Teaching videos for each of the five sessions
(videos are downloadable and in MP4 format—DVDs can be purchased separately if needed)

Teaching scripts for each of the five sessions
(If you would rather teach each week instead of showing the videos)

Leader’s Guide
(PDF/Word format) ideas/tips, suggested agenda for each small group session

Participant’s Guide
(PDF/Word format) downloadable, printable questions for each person in each small group

Followup Images
(images that can be sent out to group members with followup content to continue the discussion both for the ride home and during the week)

This content is great for new small groups, existing small groups, or Sunday school classes. A promotional video and logos are also included for worship service and online promotion.

One of the most powerful things you can do for married couples is to give them simple tools and resources they can use on their own. They need to laugh, talk, affirm and connect. We do that through Date Nights and monthly E-ZINEs.

Date Nights:

We give couples step-by-step instructions designed to get them talking, laughing and connecting—and get them out the door! The Date Nights include:

Four creative dates with step-by-step instructions for how to have a great time, every time. (Fun date NOT therapy session—the goal is connection through laughter and affirmation.)

A promotional video to use in your worship service or online

12 monthly EZINEs:

We know church leaders and the married people they serve are busy. For that reason, we created MarriedPeople Monthly, a monthly email newsletter/magazine you can download and send out to the married people in your church, or link people to the monthly content. This isn’t your typical “marriage thing.” It is a man AND woman-friendly, mush-free email full of ideas and insights with go-and-do’s married people can actually go and do—and CONNECT! They will laugh and be encouraged, we promise. To view a sample, click here.

What are People Saying About the Strategy Pack?

Marriage Ministry Needs MarriedPeople. From large group to small group, to individual couple experiences, MarriedPeople has equipped our church couples with the tools to fight for their covenant relationship.” —Greg Meek, Family Minister at Getwell Road United Methodist Church in Southaven, Mississippi

“The Married People curriculum has worked very well for us. We’ve actually done it two ways. Last year, we offered it as a 12-week study that we ran on Sunday nights. One week was Date Night, the next was the small group session, and then next Sunday they’d show up to church and receive instructions for the date night which they were supposed to do that night! We did two sessions of this . . . one in the fall and one in the spring. This year, we decided to have four marriage focused weekends over the course of the year . . . one per quarter. Over all, I love the curriculum. It’s nice having all the legwork done. All the feedback we got was positive. Looking forward to our next MP weekend!” —Deb Moline, Communications/Discipleship Counseling Director at Mosaic Church in Oakland, FL

“Our church has been so blessed by the MarriedPeople strategy pack! We just completed our third Night Out, and I can’t begin to tell you how marriages are being repaired and restored!” —Don Kauffman, Pastor at New Life Community Church in Oak Lawn, IL
