Every month, we’re profiling a church leader just like you. This month, we’re featuring Archie Rish.

Archie has been the Discipleship Pastor at GracePointe Church in Douglas, GA, for the last four and a half years.

What’s your favorite part of the job?

The partnership we get to build with families, marriages, & our community.

What are some challenges you face at your church?

A challenge we face often is convincing couples how important it is to invest in their marriage. The investment isn’t an option, it’s essential.

How has MarriedPeople changed how your church works with marriages?

MP has given us the opportunity to load couples toolboxes in our church and community. We are able to prove to couples that we are FOR their marriage. Because of MP’s work and partnership, we can take the content and make it work for our dynamic.

What’s one helpful tip you’d like to share with other church leaders?

No one knows your church and community better than you! Believe in yourself, customize the MP resources to serve the people you know best!

Are there any other helpful resources you’d recommend people check out?

Make sure to Lean into other MP leaders. Their knowledge is golden!
