Marriage & Family Ministries

Because our marriages and families are vitally important to us and to God, we want to invest in helping our relationships be as healthy as they can be. We are here to provide you with various opportunities and resources to help you enrich, strengthen and grow your marriage and your family.

Family Ministry desires to empower every parent to live by the parenting principles found in God’s Word. We will do this through classes, ministry and community building events. We are committed to equipping parents with both the tools and the training they need to build strong families and raise kids who love Jesus.

Contact Monica Baladad for more information.

Events and Resources for Strong Marriages

Looking to get married at the Vineyard?
Here at the Vineyard, we want to help you and your partner enrich and strengthen your relationship, so as you’re thinking about starting a life with your partner, we’d love to walk through the entire process of not just getting married, but also setting your partner up for an incredibly healthy and vibrant relationship together.

Truth is, you really can get married anywhere; the Vineyard is just one of many options. Our goal is not to have you jump through “several hoops” to get married, but rather, we really believe God has nothing but good things for us and has invited us to partner with him as we grow as followers of Jesus and as a spouse.

We would love nothing more than to have the opportunity to connect with you and your partner to hear your story and dream together about what God has in store for you and your partner.

  1. Give us a call! Contact us at 218-525-3462 or send us a message and express your interest in meeting with someone about getting married. We’ll take down your information and get you connected with one of our leaders here at the Vineyard.
  2. You and your fiancé will meet with a leader to hear how you met, hear your engagement story, and celebrate with you. Then we’ll talk out loud about what it looks like to get married at the Vineyard. There are no tricks or hoops to jump through, but we do see from the Bible that there are several things we can do as followers of Jesus that will set our relationships up for success. We’ll also go through a wedding packet that spells out in detail everything we have to offer for your wedding. After this meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to reserve a date and location for your wedding if you so desire.
  3. Register for Fully Engaged, our premarital class here at the Vineyard. Fully Engaged is a six-week course we offer  that strategically delves into areas of married life that many couples get hung up on. Also, you’ll have the chance to sit down with one of our marriage coaches to walk through several resources we offer, as well as answer any questions you may have. We highly recommend this class for anyone who is considering getting married, regardless if you’re getting married at the Vineyard or not. Contact us to be registered for the next available course or to take the course online.

Marriage Coaches
We offer marriage coaching to any married couple at any time. There are a variety of obstacles you may be facing as a couple, and we’d love to have a trained marriage coaching couple come alongside you to help you restore your marriage. Call 218-525-3462 for more information on how to get started.

The Marriage Conference
The Marriage Conference is a great opportunity to connect and reconnect to your significant other.  You will hear foundational truth for how to cultivate love and connection within your marriage. The 3 Session format has been developed by Marriage and Family Therapist Kurt Attaway, MA, LMFT. The content will bring together the best of scripture and couples research. Additionally, you will hear stories of hope from couples who are finding love for one another beyond circumstances. You can expect to learn, connect and experience God’s heart for you and your relationship.
