Brookwood Church believes that God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman. We believe that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship of one man and one woman, whether heterosexual, homosexual or otherwise, is contrary to Scripture. 

(Genesis 2:24-25; Exodus 20:14, 17, 22:19; Leviticus 18:22-23, 20:13, 15-16; Matthew 19:4-6, 9; Romans 1:18-31; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 15-20; 1 Timothy 1:8-11; Jude 1:7).


Getting Married?

The Brookwood Premarital Mentoring process is open to couples who are engaged and have set a date for their wedding. The sooner you get involved with us the better. The mentoring process requires several weeks and we ask that you contact us 90 days before your wedding. You'll have to complete an online survey, meet with the Counseling and Marriage Pastor, and meet with a mentoring couple six to eight times.

Premarital Mentoring Steps

  1. Register for Premarital Mentoring.
  2. Purchase the following books at the Brookwood Bookstore or at a Christian Bookstore
    • For first time marriages where neither person has been married before, you'll need the book Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott and the men's and women's workbooks.
    • For couples where one or both people have been previously married, you'll need the book Saving Your Second Marriage Before It Starts by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott and the men's and women's workbooks.
  3. Once you register for Premarital Mentoring, You'll receive an email with instructions to take the online survey.
  4. After you both have completed the survey, you'll receive a phone call to schedule your first meeting with the Counseling and Marriage Pastor to discuss the Premarital Mentoring process.
  5. If you desire your wedding and/or reception to be held at Brookwood or have a Brookwood Pastor perform your wedding ceremony, you'll be asked to agree and abide by the Brookwood Premarital Covenant.
