Miracle Life Family Church offers members premarital counseling and the opportunity to be wed in the church.
Our premarital counseling team is ready to guide engaged couples into a Christ-centered relationship, walking beside them and offering resources in preparation for what lies ahead. The team leads a ten-week premarital counseling class and one-on-one counseling sessions that run concurrently with the classes and all these are mandatory for all couples planning to be married by Miracle Life pastors.
