Congratulations on your upcoming marriage! We know there is great investment that goes into planning a wedding and we would be honored to help you invest in preparing your heart, mind and soul for the commitment and gift of a lifelong and healthy marriage. If you are looking for a pastor to officiate your wedding or are wanting to invest in developing a strong foundation for a lasting marriage through premarital mentoring, we would love to help you walk through these next steps.
Given the size of our church and the number of requests we receive, we are only able to offer premarital mentoring and provide officiants for couples who are Stakeholders or regular attenders at COTC. We also require that your wedding date be at least 6 months from the date of your registration. This ensures that there is sufficient time to complete the premarital preparation process and talk through the details of the ceremony with your pastor apart from the last-minute rush of wedding day preparations.
If you do not meet these prerequisites, we can offer recommendations for premarital counseling through one of the professional counselors in our referral network. Please email us at [email protected] for a referral.
If you’re ready to take the next step, please click the button below for your COTC location to complete the questionnaire and we will follow up with you within 1-2 business days. Please note that we would like both you and your fiance(e) to, individually, complete the form as we ask questions that are specific to each of you. Your responses to these questions will help us match you with your mentor couple.
We are so excited for you and will be praying for you both as you begin this next chapter! For any other questions, please email [email protected] or call the church at 615-465-5000.
