Marriage Mentors

Our marriage mentors are so excited for the opportunity to walk alongside you and your spouse in this thing called "marriage"!  At newhope, we believe in helping foster and develop Christ-honoring marriages, which is why this team was created.

The marriage mentors  are available to listen, give occasional advice, and provide a regular prayer covering over your marriage.  We are better together!

Marriage Mentor Directors

Wendell & Jen Skar

We met each other on a blind date and were married in 2007. Wendell works for Starbucks in store development and Jen is an elementary teacher. We have a son named Brayden who keeps us busy.  As a family we love to golf and travel.

We have spent the past 10 years mentoring married couples.  We have a heart to see every marriage thrive!  From couples struggling in their marriage, to those thriving but need to continue with maintenance, to those just walking down the aisle, we want every couple to know they are not alone.  Marriage is a crazy, amazing, adventure, and we are honored to be able to walk along side of you on your journey.
