Pre-Marriage Class

In this class, we hope to equip you with practical teaching and advice to set you up for a successful marriage. Over three sessions, we will discuss marriage, sex, finances, communication, parents/parents-in-law, and answer any questions you might have! Each session will discuss the current cultural view compared with teaching the Biblical view of each topic. This class is for seriously dating and or engaged couples.

Dates: February 1, 8, & 15
Location: Downes Road Campus
Time: 7:30-9:30pm
Cost: $40 per couple

Want a Northview Pastor to marry you?

It is the practice of Northview Pastors to officiate at weddings of couples who share the same Christian faith commitment and who are Official Members of our church (have gone through the membership class and interview process.) If this is not your situation or beliefs, and you would like to discuss this further, please contact the church.

If you would like to have one of the Northview Pastors officiate at your wedding please fill out the Wedding Officiator Request as soon as possible to allow enough time to process your request before your wedding date. Please note that we will attempt to accommodate your request to the best of our abilities. However we cannot guarantee that a Pastor will be available on a specific date. Certain dates such as long weekends in the summer and over holiday periods (i.e. Christmas, New Years) will be particularly difficult.

In order to be married by a Northview Pastor, engaged couples must complete a Northview pre-marriage course or pre-marriage counselling with a Christian counsellor (upon approval) and be a member of Northview Church.

MARRIAGE MENTORSHIP

We offer 1-to-1 couple mentorship for those who are interested in continuing the momentum gained from the pre-marriage class. Marriage Mentorship involves 2-3 informal meetings over the course of a year, where the mentor couple (NV members, married 5+ yrs) walks alongside the engaged or recently married couple and offers mentorship, friendship, and a sounding board for the mentee couple. The mentors use curriculum prepared by the NV Care team to foster meaningful conversations and share their wisdom and experience.

If you are interested in being assigned to a mentor, please fill out this form.

“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”.

Yes – you are welcome to attend. Ideally, we would prefer couples to take pre-marriage classes at the church where they will be attending after they are married. However, we recognize that not all churches offer pre-marriage training or their course dates may not work for you as a couple.

Classes are a mix of large group teaching mixed with discussion around tables. The material will be strongly Biblically based and practical for everyday life.
