Premarital Mentoring

A strong marriage needs a strong foundation. The Alpine Marriage Ministry helps engaged couples start off on the right foot by pairing them up with experienced and trained mentor couples who can help them prepare for their life together with God.

Through pre-marital mentoring, couples will:

  • Be matched with a couple that will champion their marriage.
  • Start conversations about issues like expectations, intimacy, finances, and communication.
  • Address potential problem areas before they say, “I do.”
  • Plan for their marriage, not just the wedding!

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG DOES PRE-MARITAL MENTORING LAST?

Generally, you will meet with your mentor couple 8 times during the mentoring process, approximately two weeks apart. Meetings are scheduled between you and your mentor couple based on your own schedules.  If you have specific time constraints or issues, you can let us know as we will do our best to accommodate them.

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIFIC PROGRAM YOU TAKE US THROUGH?

Yes.  Once you request a match with a mentor couple, we will let you know what workbook to purchase.  If you have financial issues, we do have scholarships available.  Contact us at marriage@alpinechapel.org

DO WE HAVE ANY SAY IN WHO OUR PRE-MARITAL MENTOR COUPLE IS?

The Ministry Leadership Team will make a match based on your answers in your “mentor request form” and also based on what couples we have available.  We will always contact you BEFORE an introduction is made to go over our recommendation and to get your go-ahead.  Our desire is that you are matched with a couple that you will be comfortable with and can be there for you during this exciting life transition!

WHAT TOPICS ARE DISCUSSED DURING THE MENTORING PROCESS?

The topics are generally dictated by the workbook you and your mentor couple are going through together.  These topics include: God’s plan for marriage, communication, resolving conflict, roles and responsibilities, finances and intimacy.  However, you can customize your sessions with your mentor couple to whatever your specific needs are.  They are there to serve you!

WE ARE NOT GETTING MARRIED AT ALPINE CHAPEL. CAN WE STILL REQUEST PRE-MARITAL MENTORING THROUGH ALPINE CHAPEL?

Yes.  If you are getting married at another church, we will ask your permission to reach out to the pastor marrying you and see if he/she has any specific areas they would like covered during the mentoring process.

MY FIANCE IS NOT A BELIEVER. CAN WE STILL REQUEST PRE-MARITAL MENTORING THROUGH ALPINE CHAPEL?

Absolutely.  Please know that our pre-marital mentoring program is a biblically-based program.  But we are happy to match you with a mentor couple regardless. Our goal is that your marriage has every opportunity for success.

WE ARE NOT ENGAGED YET. CAN WE REQUEST PRE-MARITAL MENTORING?

We would love the ability to meet with every committed couple.  However, we often find ourselves in a “waitlist” situation with our mentor couples, so we need to make tough decisions.  At this time, we are only providing pre-marital mentoring to engaged couples.
