Who We Are?


A key component to Christianity is fellowship; enjoying life with like-minded believers that serves to enrich and nurture faith. The Marriage Club is a start-up club that aims to take Christian fellowship beyond church and into everyday life. The club will primarily offer Christian married couples an opportunity to socialize in a variety of environments, all under one roof. The Marriage Club will also market to non-Christian married couples, engaged couples, and single people. Launching in April 2011, The Marriage Club will offer a restaurant, hotel, dance club, concert hall and theater, as well as a variety of other family-friendly venues. The club will also offer educational seminars, including how to resolve communication problems, sexual difficulties, conflicts about child rearing or blended families, substance abuse, financial problems, anger, and infidelity. The club will aim to keep the life of God flowing through marriages by providing recreational activities that keep spiritual growth, communication, and fun at the forefront of each union.


Located in the Seattle metropolitan area, The Marriage Club will be a membership-based facility. The Christian demographic represents a sizable market opportunity. Christians gather in approximately 319,000 churches throughout the U.S. to hear Biblical sermons and interact. More than 1 Million residents of Seattle practice religion regularly. In spite of the recent economic downturn, the Christian community has continued to exercise substantial buying power and support of religious books and merchandise. The Marriage Club hopes to help curb divorce rates within the Christian population as well as provide Seattle-area Christians with a unique third place where they can feel at home.


The Marriage Club has developed a comprehensive marketing strategy intended to reflect the club’s unique offering of Christian fellowship and social activities in an upscale, resort-like setting. The club will highlight its core Christian values, specifically its dedication to providing fun, family-friendly activities for married couples, in the creation of its logo and branding.
