Marriage Mentoring

Marriage preparation is more than planning for a wedding. It is preparing for a lifelong commitment in marriage. One of the best ways to be successful in something is to be mentored by people who do it well. There are couples in our community whose faith and experience in marriage provide such an opportunity and so they meet with engaged couples as a mentoring couple. The mentoring couple will be in regular contact which includes three face to face meetings. The intent is for the mentoring couple o be a guide who facilitates a deeper awareness and further discussion of the key elements for a successful marriage.
