Welcome to Just Married Ministries!
We are so excited that you are here! JMM exists because we passionately believe that Christ-centered marriages can change the world. So, we have created a place where we pray for each person who passes through our site to find encouragement, wisdom, hope, and truth.
Here at JMM, we know that marriage, especially the newlywed season, can be tough. Wonderful and rewarding, but tough. Truthfully, we know that some of you can experience pain like you’ve never felt, or may even feel alone in a room full of people as you make the commitment and transition into becoming one with your spouse. However, through the good and the bad, you are never alone!
Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV) says, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
We were never meant to go through life on our own. We need community and we especially need Jesus. This is a place where you can find community, find resources, and hopefully be inspired to seek after what Jesus has provided rather than seeking after what this world has to offer.
We are newlyweds, just like you. Let’s do this together!
Jon and Elizabeth met in the Spring of 2013 one Sunday morning when Elizabeth was visiting Jon’s church. Elizabeth’s heart for missions and love for Jesus caught Jon’s attention that morning and by the fall, they went on their first date. They both quickly fell in love with each other and sought guidance from God’s Word from the very beginning. In less than a year, they got married and hit the ground running living missional lives as they carry out a 2 year commitment as local missionaries and lead a quickly growing newlywed ministry at their church in Hendersonville, TN.
Jon and Elizabeth both come from families with the all-too-familiar stories of broken marriages, heart break, jealousy, and betrayal. They would be lying if they said this did not have an effect on their mindset and their spiritual journeys during their engagement and even now in their marriage. They both love LOVE and hate sin that can so easily creep into relationships. With God’s Word as their guide and with a community of like-minded believers by their side, their goal is to have a marriage that brings God glory, and to help other couples to do the same.
Who We Are
Just Married Ministries is a non-denominational Christian ministry that passionately believes Christ-centered marriages can change the world. JMM desires to provide community and resources to help newlyweds discover and maintain their foundation and passions in Christ throughout their marriage. We provide free devotions, real-life stories, resources, and encouragement to those who want to do this marriage thing right. We are real newlyweds, just like you, trying to walk with Christ through the journey of marriage the best we can. We want to finish the race strong and we know that we cannot do it on our own! Wherever you are in your journey, we promise you are not alone. We pray that in the midst of battling what culture says the norm is for marriages, that we will fight together to maintain unity by being men and women of God who place Christ first, who love HIM with all our heart, soul, and strength, and who use God’s Word as our guide.
