WHO'S IT FOR?
Did someone recently pop the question? Are the wedding plans starting to take shape? Marriage is a huge step towards the rest of your life. A commitment that brings with it endless amounts of joy and excitement accompanied by opportunities to learn more about yourself and your future spouse while growing and rising up for challenges together. If you and your partner have recently become engaged (or maybe not so recently) and are feeling excited, curious, nervous, impatient, anxious or all of the above, our premarital counseling program is ideal for you and your future spouse.
WHAT WE DO
Marriage by God pairs each engaged couple with one of our mature Christian mentor couples who will help guide you both through Marriage by God’s premarital curriculum. Your mentors will lovingly guide you both through 7 weeks of Christ-centered counseling and mentorship designed to give you excitement, hope, and tools to engage in a STRONG MARRIAGE. You will be guided in conversation, led through relationship exercises, and challenged to grow as individuals and as a couple as you prepare for your big day!

“This program is wonderful! It gave us a platform to speak and understand and be encouraged. We were set up with wonderful marriage mentors who were able to accommodate our unusual schedule! They were down to earth, real, honest, and caring! We highly recommend this program to any newly engaged couple. We have already referred friends to the program.”Elaine H.
“The program is awesome. Our counselors were knowledgeable of the course and the materials and the fact that they took the course themselves only helped them counsel us at a more personal level. This course will give you so much understanding of the other sex and how to make your marriage succeed, help you focus your relationship around God, and to keep your relationship fun! We can’t thank Marriage by God enough!”Adam G.
"We liked that we got to be really honest with our feelings, even when it was difficult topics to talk about. Our counselors did great job making us feel comfortable throughout the whole time"Chris & Anna Lee
“We were so blessed to have great mentors that really helped us prepare for our next step in life! Our communication skills improved greatly and were taken to a whole new level... I was nervous starting this program, but once we met our counselors we quickly felt comfortable and relaxed. We felt nurtured and supported every step of the way and cannot imagine not taking this program before we get married. Our counselors were great examples of Christ and on top of that they were fun and caring!”Corey W.
“This was truly a great experience... The price is more than reasonable and we both got a nice workbook and were paired with a couple with a strong marriage that has withstood the test of time... We looked forward to each session and were sad when it ended. The workbook topics were great and made each of us think about things we didn’t think of before and we learned new things about each other as a couple. We highly recommend this ministry for anyone getting married.”Joel H.
“What a wonderful program. My fiancé and I finished the program a few weeks ago, and wow was it helpful in giving us a fantastic foundation. We had wonderful counselors who had 35 years of marriage under their belt, and their insight was sound and god-centered. It was such a treat to learn from them, have weekly sessions and have resources to go to for questions... I feel even more confident in my decision to marry my fiancé after going through this program. EVERYONE considering marriage NEEDS to do this! Cannot speak highly enough of Marriage by God!”Lauren H.

“We loved that it is one on one in a very comfortable and safe setting. Our mentors really LOVED us. They prepared each week and treated us like kings and queens.
