PREPARING FOR MARRIAGE

If you are engaged to be married or contemplating engagement, congratulations! After you’ve said yes, we are excited to partner with you as you begin to plan for your wedding day and, more importantly, your future as a married couple.

Our premarital process is designed to help you build a Christ-centered marriage that will last a lifetime by using Godly principles and time-tested skills and tools.  At Petra, we are happy to provide a seasoned married couple to walk with you as premarital mentors, a pastor to officiate your ceremony and a wedding coordinator that will assist the pastor in facilitating a smooth rehearsal and ceremony. This is available to Petra members and attendees. 

If you are planning a wedding at Petra or a Petra pastor is officiating your wedding, you do not have to wait to know all of your wedding details to get the process started. If possible, please allow at least six months to complete the following process, however, six months advanced notice is not a requirement. Fill out the questionnaire with what you know and we’ll help you get started!

Premarital Questionnaire

THE PREMARITAL PROCESS

1. Fill out the Premarital Questionnaire.  

2. Once you have filled out the Premarital Questionnaire, the Administrative Assistant for Weddings will receive an email notification and will be in contact with you about your next steps.  

3. You’ll meet with our Premarital Counseling Pastor to help guide you through the process and help you to be matched with an officiating pastor and premarital mentors. 

SCHEDULING A WEDDING

Petra campus is available for weddings only for members and regular attendees of Petra who are also using a Petra Pastor to officiate your ceremony. 

The fees for Petra weddings vary. A detailed list of costs will be given to you in a packet after you fill out the Premarital Questionnaire.

All of our staff pastors are licensed to officiate weddings. You may request any pastor that you’d like; however, please be advised that each pastor has a unique schedule and may not be available for your specific date.

Contact our Administrative Assistant for weddings. She would be happy to answer any questions you might have!
