Support Couple Job Description

Reports to:

Director of Ministry

Position Summary:

This voluntary position is for Christ following couples who have been married for a minimum of 5 years to the same spouse. These couples will support the Marriage Hub staff in facilitating a weekend marriage intensive retreat. The goal is for the “Support Couple” to build connections with our “client” couples, attending the intensive, so they can interact with them during the follow-up process after the weekend is over.

Expectations before and during the Intensive:

~ Read the couples’ questionnaires prior to attending the weekend intensive
~ Attend the 3-day marriage intensive retreat. (Friday 6:30 pm – Sunday 6:30 pm)
~ Fully participate in the intensive. Get to know the couples during meal times and other times when we are not in session.
~ Get permission to exchange phone numbers / emails with the couples attending to aid in the follow-up process.
~ You help with the hospitality needs of the group.
~ There is no cost to you. We take care of your meals and expenses.

Expectations after the Intensive:

~ The week after the intensive is over – we encourage that you touch base with each couple to find out how they are doing transitioning back to “normal” life … and if they have been able to start their first “Heavy Lifting” assignment.
~ For the next three months – we encourage that you touch base with each couple to encourage them in their “Heavy Lifting” assignments and to see how they are doing.
~ If you hear from the couples we ask that you send us an update on how they are doing … so we can track their progress and step in to further help them if needed.

Application Process:

~ Fill out the Support Couple Application Form
~ We will schedule a face-to-face interview. (This can be done virtually.)
