Marriage Foundations

We are excited that you and your significant other are considering engagement and/or marriage, and we would like to assist you as you begin the premarital process.

Marriage Foundations is a premarital class for both engaged and dating couples who are considering marriage. The program is an interactive look at God's design and purpose for marriage, and each class is devoted to a specific topic (such as communication and conflict, finances, in-laws, and sexual intimacy).

You will have the opportunity to meet with a staff-approved married mentor couple. The meetings will be structured around the PREPARE-ENRICH Inventory by Life Innovations, Inc. The inventory will reveal strengths and growth areas that you and your mentor couple will discuss. It is designed to help provide an objective focus on critical relationship issues.

This survey will be e-mailed to both of you.

Coach Couple Training

Each year 40–50 couples attend Stonebriar's premarital class, Marriage Foundations. Would you consider, as a married couple, being a point of connection and grace for these couples considering marriage? 

Coach Couple Training is held once every year or two years, depending on the number of couples needed. Announcements will be made under ProjectServe and this web page whenever another training will be taking place. 

The training will teach the purpose, process, and requirements. Serving as a Coach Couple is more relational than informational: authenticity, not perfection, is desired. As a Coach Couple, you simply provide a safe and welcoming environment for your assigned couple to consider marriage.
