WHO ARE WE?
Married Life is the Marriage Ministry at Crossgate.
God designed marriage to reflect His glory through which a man and a woman grow closer to Christ, raise children of faith, and provide a vivid image of the relationship between Christ and the church. Our desire it to minister to couples who are struggling to get along, whose marriage is broken, those who simply want to grow closer together as a couple, blended families or couples who are preparing for marriage.
