The Hidden Costs of Failed Marriages in Your Church

July 14, 2016

As a leader that cares about the marriages in your church, you’re well aware of the spiritual, emotional, and relational costs that surround failed marriages.  The wreckage, pain and loss is devastating in so many ways in those family’s lives, as well as the lives of those close to them.  These are powerful, life-long effects.

But are you counting the “hidden costs” of failed marriages in your church?

Think about this: when families begin to come apart at the seams, the hurting couples and their children require a great deal more time, attention, and resources.  It puts a great strain on you and your team.  Things that are important get overrun by the urgent, and an unseen toll is taken on the church that continually grows over time.

The sad reality is that most churches get so busy helping distressed couples, they forget to enrich the marriages in their congregation, prepare those who are getting married, and really seek to establish healthy marriages when they start.  What is the opportunity cost there?

Do we need to mention the hard costs that come with resourcing failed marriages and the inevitable loss of those families and their financial gifts?

What if half of the failed marriages in your church could have been saved?  How much and in how many ways would God’s kingdom have been strengthened, not only in those families, but in the congregation and community?  How much would that “save” you, your team, and your church?

How do you swing the pendulum from recovering to preventing failing marriages?  How do you move from a marriage ministry of help to a ministry of health?

We don’t have all the answers, but a relatively small investment on you and your team’s part could yield abundant results.  This September, Leadership Network is launching HUB:Marriage and Healthy Relationships, a 12-month, peer-centered collaborative experience that will help your church strengthen relationships in a changing culture.  This investment of time and resources could be the one thing that helps save more marriages in your church and community than anything you’ve done before.
