At Woodland, we understand the importance of a healthy marriage. That's why we have launched a ministry called Woodland Married People. We want to give married couples practical tools to help them in their everyday lives.

Love God First

When Jesus was asked about the greatest commandment, His answer was to love God with all you are and to love others as well as you love yourself. Loving God in your individual life greatly impacts your married life. (Matthew 22:37-40)

Have Serious Fun

Having fun as a couple is not optional; it's essential. We believe the best way to protect your marriage is to enjoy it regularly. (Proverbs 5:18)

Respect & Love

Of the few verses, God gives to husbands and wives, the directive to respect and love is commanded more than any other. This truth can set us free when we understand the interplay of respect and love.

(Ephesians 5:21-33)

Practice your Promise

Our spouses trusted that we would do what we promised when we said, “I do”—to love each other and to stay together no matter what. Knowing and experiencing a lasting commitment is vital to every marriage. (Proverbs 5:18; Malachi 2:15)

John & Rochelle Ward

Leaders of Woodland Married People

High school sweethearts, married over 20 years and moved to Florida 4 years ago from Northwest Indiana. They have 3 daughters: Madison, Jaedyn, and Kamdyn. Their son in law, Christian, serves in the US Airforce. New to the grandparent scene, they have been blessed with 2 beautiful grandchildren Nathanael and Isabella.


John and Rochelle have participated in various ministries over the years from Leading Worship, Small Group leaders, Youth Ministry, and Hospitality Coordinators. Their passion for couples and relationships was fueled early on and has turned in to a deep desire to lead others in striving for God-centered marriages. John and Rochelle enjoy spending time at the beach, traveling, and most of all spending time as a family.
