Bouldercrest Marriage Ministry (BCMM)
The Bouldercrest Marriage Ministry (BCMM) was created to provide a holistic approach to supply the needs and the development of marriages. Marriage is a sacred covenant between each couple and God, and it requires love, commitment, and unity. A happy marriage is one of the greatest blessings that a couple can experience, and it is achieved when the husband and wife love God more than themselves and they work together with the word of God serving as the foundation of their marriage.
The ministry is committed to educating, enhancing, uniting and sustaining marriages and families through the utilization of biblical principles designed specifically for Bouldercrest couples. The framework and overarching goals are as follows:
Provide encouragement and fellowship to strengthen and renew marriages and families.
Promote biblical instruction and learning in an effort to enhance the practical application of spiritual concepts within the context of marriage.
Establish and implement a support system while leveraging available resources to aid in perpetuating thriving, loving, godly marriage relationships within the body of Christ.
The purpose of the Encouragement and Fellowship framework is to help couples understand the importance of encouragement within a marriage and also to create fellowship opportunities. “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” (I Thessalonians 5:11)
Oftentimes, Christians struggle within their marriages because they are not grounded in the word of God, not aware of the spiritual roles and responsibilities God has defined in his successful plan for marriage, nor are they able to apply the scriptural application and healing to their situation. The purpose of the Biblical Instruction and Learning framework is to equip couples with skills and provide opportunities for the practical application of techniques to use when dealing with marital issues. “Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance.” (Proverbs 1:5)
Because every marriage is different and all marriages will experience challenges, it is imperative to have support systems during times of distress. Therefore, we have developed a Support System which provides couples with counseling and other support avenues sooner rather than later. This Support System provides support and counseling options using Biblical principles to help couples find healing and reignite their love and commitment to each other. “Where there is no counsel a people fall, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.” (Proverbs 11:14 ESV) When we face battles too great to wage alone, wise people seek wise counsel.
