Marriage Ministry

Developing a healthy walk with God doesn’t just happen. Just as physical fitness requires a healthy diet and exercise, spiritual health depends upon food from God’s Word & opportunities to stretch and grow and serve. Adult Discipleship at Trinity includes a wide variety of opportunities for learning & spiritual growth. There’s something for everyone, at every stage of life.

Through special events and targeted classes the Marriage Matters team seeks to equip and encourage all couples in their marriages, no matter how they are doing. Marriage Mentors are also available to come alongside a couple wanting confidential help to take their life-commitment to a deeper level.

Resources

Focus on the Family Counseling Line

For needs of an urgent or serious nature, we have a staff of licensed professional counselors who are available to listen, pray, and provide guidance. You can arrange to speak with a counselor at no cost by calling 1-855-771-HELP (4357) Monday through Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Mountain time. If call volumes are high, it may be necessary for you to leave your name and number for a counselor to return your call. One of them will be in touch just as soon as they are able.

Focus on the Family Marriage Assessment

We are so glad you’ve taken this step to invest in your marriage.  Dr. Greg and Erin Smalley have spent years studying why marriages thrive.  They’ve found there are 12 behaviors that consistently make up great marriages. Based on research and experience from the Smalleys, Focus on the Family has created valid and reliable questions that evaluate the strength of 12 essential traits of your marriage— areas such as communication, conflict, and commitment.

The assessment is free and takes about 10 minutes to complete.

The Center for Individual and Family Therapy

The Center for Individual and Family Therapy has been providing top quality Christian Counseling in Orange County for over 20 years. They have the staff, resources, and support you need to find hope, healing, and growth in a caring, safe and professional place.

Small Groups

God has designed us to do life in community, and our small groups are a great way to experience this by growing together. We have groups of all kinds and sizes, meeting throughout the week.

Rev. Ron Oldenkamp

Executive Associate Pastor

Ron was raised in a Christian home in Thousand Oaks, CA. Having loved Jesus all his life, he still knew he needed to publicly acknowledge Jesus as his Lord and Savior, doing so at a Christian concert [Sweet Comfort Band!]. He is happily married to Nancy, who serves as a volunteer in ministry. Ron has a heart for missions, and he loves to teach. He feels gifted by God for problem-solving and overall administration of ministries. Ron likes to spend time with Nancy playing in the outdoors — camping, fishing, gardening, and BBQing.
