"How does one uphold God’s standard and ideal for marriage? The answer is The Cross - a place where all of us who have blown it can experience grace and forgiveness and a second chance.”

- Greg St. Cyr

We believe that marriage is a God-designed commitment that reflects our own relationship with God as Father, Son and Spirit. Marriage is our “training ground” for relationship with God, filled with joys and sorrows, successes and failures, celebrations and grief, sickness and health. Marriage is an intimate spiritual and physical journey, both through and for life.

Bay Area’s Marriage Ministry exists to build maturing, passionate, and lasting marriages as God’s most visible image of becoming one in Christ. Our marriage ministry is aimed at both married couples as well as premarital or seriously dating couples.

Are you married, engaged or seriously dating and looking for a night of fun? Join us this fall for our Couples Western Fall Date Night!

Our Premarital Ministry focuses on helping couples prepare for a marriage to last a lifetime with Christ at the center. Premarital couples are assigned a premarital mentor couple to meet for at least 6 private sessions. Newly married couples (up through their first year) can also enroll to learn important foundations to strengthen their commitment. All couples explore the fundamentals of God’s design for marriage. Cost is $75.  Email questions to
