Premarital Counseling

Engaged Couples Seminar | Summit Counseling

Whether or not you're holding your wedding at First Baptist Church Jackson, the counseling ministry of First Baptist Church Jackson stands ready to assist you as you begin a life-long commitment called "marriage." The way we do this is to provide the necessary counseling that will bind the two of you together as a couple and with God.

Each couple is given the results of their personal PREPARE inventory. This tool has been statistically proven to be 85% successful in determining a couple's strength and growth areas.

Each questionnaire assesses relationship strength and growth areas for the following topics: Communication, Conflict, Resolution, Partner Style & Habits, Financial Management, Leisure Activities, Parenting, Sexual Expectations, Family & Friends, Relationship Roles, Spiritual Beliefs, Commitment & Abuse, Stress, and Personality.

We strongly recommend that counseling take place at least 6 (six) months prior to your wedding.
