Beyond Mentoring is

Beyond Mentoring is a GBC ministry designed to strengthen marriages, one person at a time.

Trained, supervised mentors come alongside an individual who desires to enrich their marriage.

Participants meet in a professional office with a mentor at scheduled times to discuss concerns about their marriage relationship. It is more than encouragement; it is listening and giving advice; sharing personal experience and knowledge about relationships; and helping individuals experience a healthy, growing marriage.
