A good marriage needs a strong foundation and it takes commitment, effort and reliance on God for guidance through the years. Our Marriage Preparation Course conducted over seven-weekends, has an unique feature. Each participating couple are assigned a mentoring couple who promised a “service-warranty” of one year from their wedding dates. the mentors will also walk through with each couple using the Prepare-Enrich Instrument. 

For the seven-weekend course, each training session had two parts. The materials for the first part came from Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts (SYMBIS), which was written by relationship experts, Doctors Les and Leslie Parrot. The sessions covered the various facets of marriage through DVD presentations and practical exercises to enhance the learning and application of each topic covered. The second part of each session covered topics that further enhance the couple’s relationship with God, themselves, parents and in-laws, financial management, sexuality, communication and conflict management. Through the seven weeks, all couples engaged in active discussion with their mentors.
