Preparing for Your Marriage

If you’re like most people, you prepare and plan for many things in life: education, career, retirement and holidays.  And most couples spend up to 250 hours planning their wedding, but very little time, if any, planning for married life.  There are many things you can do to begin building a lifelong, happy marriage.  Investing in your relationship before you are married will reap rewards for many years to come.

Prepare & Enrich Customized Assessment

Prepare & Enrich is an online assessment tool which a trained pastor facilitates a conversation with a couple to assess the overall health of their relationship.  Prepare & Enrich allows couples to explore specific details in their relationship. It is not a test or a predictor of marital success, but it is a tool designed to help the engaged/or married couple identify their strengths and areas of potential growth.

When a couple chooses this option they are given access to a secure web-based survey.  Each will complete this survey independently (which takes approximately 45 minutes to complete). Once the survey is completed a report is generated and sent to the facilitator who will then sit with the couple to customize a plan that will meet their specific needs and address the uniqueness of their relationship.

In this option, couples will complete anywhere from 4-5 sessions depending on the results of their assessment and the recommendation of the pastor/facilitator.

During the sessions couples will cover many of the topics listed under option two below, but are given more personal and individual attention as they benefit from a more direct coaching/counseling environment.

Cost:  $100.00 (includes online survey, workbook, printed report, customized coaching)
