What does a Healthy Marriage look like?

Maintaining a healthy marriage can be challenging, but it is not impossible. Countless couples before us have enjoyed lifelong connections with their spouse, and so can we.

At Echo Church, we strongly support healthy relationships and intentional marriages, and we also want to help those who are struggling in their relationships.


If you are experiencing the following struggles, it may be time to ask for help:

  • Communication breakdown

  • Lack of intimacy

  • Constant conflict

  • Loss of trust

  • Relational drift

Our pastors, Andy and Christy Cass have great
