expectations:

For the sake of your small group, it is important that each couple commit to the whole process of re|engage. The process includes a commitment to the following:

  • We ask that you miss no more than two small group meetings in your time with re|engage. We understand that things may come up, but ask that you let your leaders know ahead of time if you will be absent.
  • We ask that you do the required homework before your small group meetings. This involves a short reading, answering questions, discussing 1-2 answers with your spouse, and watching the assigned video teachings and testimonies.
  • Part of the commitment involved in re|engage is agreeing to abide by the following ground rules:

    1. Successful small groups have a balance of each person getting to contribute and share without any one person dominating the group’s time and attention. So, don’t talk too little and don’t talk too much.
    2. Avoid the temptation to try to fix one another. Safe and successful small groups are characterized by support rather than advice-giving. Trying to “fix” someone else is usually a sign that we don’t want to deal with our own stuff.
    3. Even though you are at re|engage as a couple, focus on your own individual thoughts and feelings as you share with the group. Please don’t use your sharing as an opportunity to harm someone else.
    4. Scripture calls us to refrain from gossip. Please operate under the direction of God’s Word in the handling of information shared within the group. In order to provide a safe environment for your group, you must commit not to share information about one another outside the group, except in the event of the threat of physical, emotional or spiritual injury, and then only under the guidance of a re|engage leader.
    5. In re|engage, each person should be allowed to share without interruptions. However, like most other successful conversations, others are free to contribute with comments or observations only to the extent that it is helpful for the person that is sharing.
  • Nobody will force you to share anything, but in order for re|engage to work, we need couples who are willing to share how things are really going both personally and at home. In return, our commitment to you is to model the same openness from our leaders and provide a safe context where you will not be shamed or judged for sharing.
  • This is a 14-week journey. We ask that you stick with it all the way. Those who do experience amazing results!

The program was launched at Watermark Community Church in September 2008 and has since expanded to other churches in the DFW area and nationwide. Christ Chapel, under the Soul Care Ministry, began its first pilot season at the Fort Worth Campus in the fall of 2014 with a launch to the congregation in February of 2015.

re|engage is not marriage counseling. Our leaders are not counselors, but rather shepherds of the group who are also growing in their own marriages. Everyone in the group is on the journey to oneness in marriage. We believe that openness and honesty in a small group setting, using a biblically-based curriculum, is the best environment for God to grow and resurrect marriages.

Absolutely! We actually find that the couples who are not deeply hurting are more able to focus their efforts on establishing new patterns that cause your marriage to flourish.

Yes, it is! We have had couples who are separated or divorced. While the outcome is based on the work each individual is willing to do to save their marriage, the platform provides a safe place to focus on what a healthy marriage should look like, and it provides some tools to help grow toward this goal.

There is no personal sharing required during the large group meeting. Though we want you to remain active in group discussion, any personal sharing during the small group meetings is encouraged, but entirely voluntary.

We believe that Scripture calls us to refrain from gossip. We ask all participants and leaders to adhere to the guidelines that what is discussed in the group stays in the group. Our leaders are encouraged to operate under the direction of God’s Word in handling the information shared in the group. In order to provide a safe environment, the leaders have committed to not share information about others outside the group except in the event of the threat of physical, emotional or spiritual injury, then to be dealt with under the guidance of CCBC staff.

Our prayer is that you will feel safe to share within your small group. We find that the more authentic and transparent couples can be with others, the more they find hope and healing within their marriage.

The time required will vary from week to week, but it is designed for approximately 1-2 hours of outside work. Individual work in the curriculum will take approximately 30-60 minutes each week. Then, couples come together and share their answers before coming back to group (also 30-60 minutes each week).  

As soon as you are ready. We encourage you and your spouse to be clear about what you are committing to and what is expected of you once you start. With that being said, the sooner you are able to commit, the easier it is for us to get you plugged into a Closed Group.
