This is where Agape got our start back in 2008 as Agape Premarital Counseling. We specialized in long distance Christian Premarital Counseling and have since worked with over 150 couples from all over the world. We've worked with couples as young as 18 or 19 years of age, and all the way up to their late 60's. You're never too old to learn! We've also worked with professional athletes, people from all walks of life, and all sorts of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.
We've got a simple and effective approach! We meet for eight one hour sessions and about 50% of what I teach comes straight from the word of God and the other 50% is based on my practical experiences from 36 years of marriage and my times of working with 200+ couples over the last 25 years.
The way I look at it, don't you owe it to yourself to make sure you've done everything possible to set your future marriage up for the greatest likelihood of success?
Think about this for a minute, we need education and training in literally every area of our lives if we expect to do well, right? Take for instance, our professions. They may require a four, six or even eight-year degree or perhaps going to a two-year tech school to learn a skill or a trade.
Essentially, we go to great lengths and pains to be the best at whatever we do and set our minds on, so why would we not then apply that same approach to our future marriage? Especially to something that we're voluntarily signing up for, for the next 40, 50, 60+ years of our lives!!
In my humble opinion we should move heaven and earth to learn the knowledge, skills, and techniques to creating a 'til death do us part Christian marriage relationship before entering into it!!
My Christian Premarital Counseling is done in my office if you're local to the Anoka, MN area or virtually if you're anywhere else in the metro, state, country, or world!
If you would like to learn more, we can schedule a time for a complimentary 30 minute Discovery Call to answer any questions you may have. The goal is to learn more about one another and to see if I would be a fit for you and getting your premarital counseling done.
*Discovery Calls do not guarantee that we will work together. It is at the complete discretion of Agape and the Couple as to whether or not they will work together for any reason.
Curriculum to be used: Preparing for Marriage is an essential tool to be used for premarital counseling couples to a long and successful marriage. The study guide is designed to offer as little or as much direction needed to train those that will be in the most intimate and long lasting human relationship we will ever experience on earth.
The workbook sessions that couples will experience during this study are:
Preparing for Marriage and this entire process is invaluable in helping couples considering marriage: to discern if God is calling them together as husband and wife, to learn what it takes to be married, to learn what each is accountable for. All the while, we will be creating a marriage that will last for a lifetime because it is based and rooted in Jesus Christ.
Officiating Wedding Ceremony: Some couples may desire that I perform the wedding ceremony which is also an option. I am an Ordained, Independent Minister of the Gospel by the National Association of Christian Ministers. If you live outside of the state of Minnesota and wish to have me perform your ceremony, because each states registration process is so different, we would need to look at each ceremony on a case by case basis. There would be an additional cost with the time and travel, but regardless, it is something I would be privileged to do. If this is of interest to you, please let me know as far in advance as possible, so we can start talking about the details and get dates on the calendar. Learn more
