Pre-Marriage Mentoring

As a couple considering the amazing covenant-relationship of marriage, we at CCC strongly urge you to seek wise counsel before actually getting married. To that end, our Pre-Marriage Mentoring is a ministry designed to prepare engaged couples for a lifelong marital commitment. 

Pre-Marriage Mentoring begins 4 - 6 months prior to the wedding date and involves the following:

  • Being committed to a pre-planned schedule of 9 sessions with a CCC mentor couple that has been married at least 7 years
  • Traveling to the mentor's home for each of the 90 minute sessions
  • Completing assigned reading and homework with preparedness to discuss it prior to each session

The materials we use have been selected and approved by CCC Staff and Elders and include the following:

  • An online assessment called "Prepare and Enrich."
  • Preparing For Marriage by Dennis Rainey (primary workbook)
