SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Aug. 15, 2012 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Alexander House Apostolate (TAHA), today announced the availability of Marriage Disciples™, a new mentoring program designed to help couples live Christ-centered, joy-filled marriages. The program which will have a parish-based component, will train interested couples at no charge.
Marriage Disciples is designed to prepare mentor couples -- who will serve as volunteers for TAHA -- to work with couples who are experiencing difficulty in their marriage. TAHA also will train Marriage Disciples for parishes who wish to offer this service.
This much-needed program is based on the Christian Marriage Coaching™ process developed by TAHA Founders Greg and Julie Alexander. Since 1999, TAHA has used this process -- which is 99 percent effective -- to help thousands of couples strengthen and restore their marriages.
The Marriage Disciples program provides couples with a blueprint for building a strong marriage. It helps couples establish a firm foundation for their relationship based on God's plan for marriage. In addition, the program helps couples build on that foundation using the Six Pillars of a Strong Marriage: Emotional Needs, Forgiveness & Healing, Virtues, Communication, Chastity, and Spirituality.
The program comes complete with workbooks for the mentee couples, as well as training and a comprehensive guide for the mentor couples. Interested parishes and couples can request additional information by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to Greg Alexander, president of TAHA, Marriage Disciples training will be available -- at no charge -- to any parish or couple who feels called to help couples live out God's plan for marriage. He explained that the Apostolate is committed to the practice of true stewardship, freely sharing the gifts that God has freely given. "We rely on the generosity of those who are committed to the mission of proclaiming the beauty, goodness and truth of God's plan for marriage," he said.
The Alexander House Apostolate is an international non-profit organization working to preserve the marriage covenant, build strong families and lower the divorce rate by proclaiming the beauty, goodness and truth of God's plan for marriage. Their programs include: Covenant of Love™, a parish-based marriage ministry, Marriage DisciplesTM, a couple-to-couple mentoring program with a parish-based component, and Made for Each Other™, a weekly radio program aired on Guadalupe Radio Network.
The Alexander House is headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, with regional offices in Detroit, Mich. and Phoenix, Ariz.
