We believe the best way to prepare for marriage is for us to match engaged couples with a married couple who has similar interests, and then for the engaged and already married couple to follow our Preparing for Marriage mentoring program. This allows the engaged couple to learn more about each other and what it means to have a gospel-centered marriage, as well as to have a constant connect point for questions, guidance, and concerns along the way.
The program consists of six meetings, videos, and homework that will help engaged couples effectively prepare for marriage. The great thing about this program is that it doesn't stop with these meetings - the married couple becomes marriage mentors to the engaged couple to continue the conversations into married life. Our marriage mentors must be married for a minimum number of years, and exhibit a healthy, gospel-centered marriage before they are accepted as mentors.
Participation in our Preparing for Marriage framework is available to regular attendees of one of our churches within the network of Antioch Community Churches Of Greater Boston (Antioch Community Church Beverly, Antioch Community Church Waltham, Antioch Community Church Quincy, Antioch Roxbury, and Antioch Community Church Waltham).
