Marriage preparation at Emmanuel is done through connecting pre-married couples with one of our marriage mentor couples who will guide them though a pre-marriage assessment/inventory (SYMBIS), followed by pre-marriage sessions based on that assessment and/or pre-marriage curriculum being used. Although the number of sessions can vary, we recommend that couples plan to commit to a 6 to 8 week process with a mentor couple to allow time to work through important issues, concerns or questions that should be answered before a couple says “I DO”. Our pre-marriage mentoring program combines the practical side of marriage prep with the personal and relevant component of a mature mentoring couple who can help them learn and prepare for the day to day challenges and joys of married life. Many couples find their ongoing relationship with their marriage mentors to be an ongoing help and blessing throughout their marriage.
It is aslo the Policy of Emmanuel Baptist Church that any couple being married by a staff member of Emmanuel, after having at least one session with the pastor who will be performing the marriage, to participate and complete this pre-marriage mentoring and process.
