to walk with you,

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

bound-up in the religion and brokenness,
12 years acting like we had it together,
Jesus rescued us in 2013 and he
offered us a rare kingdom marriage,
and now we get to impart it to you
It's all about having Jesus Christ in the middle of everything; it's easier said than done. We want to explore the key aspects of relationships as it applies to young adult, unmarried Christians. We want to invite you into the larger story God has for his sons and daughters as you discover how to do friendship, courtship/dating, engagement, and ultimately marriage. We don't hold punches. We're willing to talk about the real stuff... openly, honestly, and honorably.
We have a wild fear-of-the-Lord regarding kingdom relationships. Jesus cares deeply about who you are, who you date and marry, how and why you pursue another person, and who you are in the process. But where is the discipleship? Why do we wait for "pre-marital counseling" class to try to learn how to live a kingdom relationship? Why does "pre-marital counseling" feel like a check-box? Honestly, it's a missed opportunity in the church. We want to walk with you in this category.
We'll dive into a biblical perspective on sexuality, affection, and intimacy. We'll explore questions like...how do you move from friend-zone in to friends-plus? Is there a rate at which a relationship should progress? What if every conversation is a DTR? What about making-out versus not-kissing-till-the-altar? Why do I have an unhealthy history with relationships? What if I've never had a steady relationship? Why do I have a fear or aversion toward physical intimacy? Why do I have an unhealthy obsession with physical intimacy? How do you communicate with each other about hard things? Where do gender roles come into play? What if I need to break off a relationship? Is there only one soul-mate? How do you find the right person? What if we don't align on values or vision? Why does most dating advice feel like a wrestle between the secular world and a religious approach? And more.
How about the Bible? Where will it come into this training? We will dig into Genesis 1, 2, and 3. We'll cover Ephesians 4 and 5 and take a look at 1st Corinthians 7. We will chew through Matthew 18, the Women at the Well, and more. We'll acknowledge where many verses have been confused or abused (depending on your background). We'll provide context and language to understand the word of God in light of these crucial topics. Helping you discover a kingdom perspective on relationship. It's more brilliant than you could ask or imagine.
We'll share plenty of our personal story as it relates to these topics, ultimately to the glory of God for his redemption in our lives. He's touched us in countless ways over the years. We are not the same people who married each other over twenty years ago. He's made us new. We desire to impart to you what has taken years to cultivate.

Student 1 Takeaway...
The beauty of the biblical view of marriage; many cultural misconceptions that I had accepted as fact were dislodged in light of Scripture.
