Premarital Counseling

Persons wishing to be married at Paso Robles Community Church (PRCC), or have our pastor officiate their wedding offsite, are required to complete our premarital coaching sessions. Premarital coaching is designed to help couples prepare for marriage. The Mayo Clinic states that "Premarital training can help ensure that you and your partner have a strong, healthy relationship — giving you a better chance for a stable and satisfying marriage." The premarital coaching offered at PRCC is biblically based and will not only help you identify weaknesses that could become bigger problems during marriage but equip you with a relational skill-set to build a healthy, life-giving, "til-death-do-us-part" marriage. 

Because we require couples to receive coaching prior to the wedding, we request four months advance notice when scheduling your wedding.


As for the coaching, our premarital coaching uses the internationally acclaimed PREPARE inventory to help couples prepare for marriage.  The insights gained from the inventory are combined with enhanced relationship skills and our coaching process to help couples to form a lasting connection.  Couples meet with their coaches for 6 to 12 sessions.  Sessions are typically 1.5 to 2.5 hours each.

What Happens Next?
You will receive an e-mail from PREPARE-ENRICH with a link and password to complete the inventory on-line.  This inventory is a snapshot of your relationship that your coaches will use as a tool in coaching.

When you both have completed the inventory, we will identify a coach couple for you. The process typically takes 3-7 business days. When we have found your coach couple, we will send an email with their names. They will call you to arrange for your first meeting.  If you have any questions during this part of the process, please call the MarriageTeam office (360) 450-6042 or email us at info@marriageteam.org.
