Prepare-Enrich Certification: Pastors, Counselors, and Relationship Professionals

Prepare Enrich is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple’s strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used Programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. But there are also customized versions of the inventory used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple’s assessment results, a trained facilitator provides 4-8 feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.

There are several goals of the Prepare Enrich Program.  In order to achieve these goals there are exercises designed to help couples improve their relationship skills.  The program helps couples:

  • Explore strength and growth areas

  • Strengthen communication skills

  • Identify and manage major stressors

  • Resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model

  • Develop a more balanced relationship

  • Explore family of origin issues

  • Discuss financial planning and budgeting

  • Establish personal, couple and family goals

  • Understand and appreciate personality differences

Marriage Mentor Program

Implementing a marriage mentor program can be an exciting and powerful addition to the ministry or outreach of your church or community. A formal mentoring program often ensures that premarital couples get more preparation, and get it earlier in their engagement; two factors which promote healthier relationships.

  • For premarital and newlywed couples, Marriage Mentors provide helpful role models during the premarital stage and first year of marriage.

  • For the clergy, a mentoring program provides a way to offer more comprehensive premarital, newlywed and marriage enrichment programs to their congregation and community.

  • For the church, it expands ministry options, facilitates outreach to couples, and helps to develop more sharing and connection among members of the congregation.

  • For married couples, meeting with Marriage Mentors can provide hope, enrichment, and direction for their marriage.

  • For Marriage Mentors, investing in other couples can be an enriching experience for their own marriages.

The Prepare Enrich Marriage Mentor Program was developed in order to give you, the supervisor, the tools to train Marriage Mentors to work with premarital, newlywed, and married couples. The program is designed to be flexible so that it can be tailored to fit the needs of each individual congregation or group. Feel free to adapt it in a way that will be most effective for your setting.

David and Theresa are available to come to your location to train your mentors and offer consultation on developing marriage ministry within the local church and community.
