Common Questions About Premarital Counseling
How do we begin the premarital process and/or schedule a pastor to officiate our wedding?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 484-443-3001.
Do we have to be members of Ascending Life Church to go through the premarital process or have a pastor officiate our wedding?
No. You do not have to be a member of Ascending Life Church to go through our premarital process or to have one of our pastors officiate your wedding.
What are the guidelines for an Ascending Life Church pastor to officiate our wedding?
If you are interested in having an Ascending Life Church pastor officiate your wedding, premarital counseling is required prior to the wedding. If the premarital counseling is completed outside of Ascending Life Church, counseling must be scripture-based, and we will need documentation of completion. This documentation should include the curriculum studied, a minimum of 6 hours completed and who facilitated your process on a form from your premarital counselors directly emailed to email@example.com. In addition, we recommend a minimum of a $300 honorarium for an Ascending Life Church pastor who officiates your wedding and should be given on the day of the wedding.
Is there a cost for premarital counseling?
Yes. The cost is $80 per couple. This covers the online assessment and the materials used for premarital counseling.
