Pre-Engagement and Pre-Marital Counseling
Pre-engagement or Premarital counseling is a vital part of preparing for marriage. We have recently revamped our program to make it even more relevant and beneficial for the couples who ask for premarital care.
Our new program will last 12-13 weeks and during our 90 minute sessions will cover a variety of critical issues for every couple planning a lifetime together. Some situations may require a longer course of care, and we have found it is best to begin counseling before engagement or at least 4-6 months before the anticipated wedding date.
At Reigning Grace Counseling Center, you will meet with both a male and female biblical counselor. You will complete short, engaging, and fun homework assignments together that will help you learn more about each other and how you relate to one another. You will also learn the biblical principles for a successful marriage- one that will last a lifetime.
Our fees for this service are $80.00 per 90 minute session. Please contact our office for more details.

My husband and I went through Reigning Grace's premarital counseling program and are extremely grateful we did. Our counselors, Julie Ganschow and Bill Schlacks are wonderful, godly people who desire to see others grow in their knowledge and understanding of God and His Word. They are kind and loving, yet remain completely loyal to the Bible and what it teaches. They were not afraid to ask hard questions and challenge different areas of our lives, and we appreciated that very much. Each week we had homework to do individually and were required to discuss our answers with each other before meeting with Julie and Bill. While some topics were uncomfortable for us to work through, simply saying it was "worth it" would be a gross understatement. It would be impossible for me to recount all that we gleaned from our time in counseling, but some of the most important things we learned were the Biblical purpose of marriage and how to communicate, truly communicate, with each other. We are not perfect and plan on being life-long learners of God's Word and each other; however, the premarital counseling we received was very thorough and allowed us to lay a foundation built on the Word of God that has helped us start our marriage off well. We would both highly recommend this program and this counseling center to anyone who is interested in having a marriage that is not only good, but brings much glory to God.
