Congratulations on your engagement, and welcome to Two to One, a premarital mentoring ministry of North Point Ministries. Great marriages don't just happen! An important part of having a great marriage is preparation. Two to One is designed to help prepare engaged couples for strong, lasting marriages based on biblical principles.
Two to One pairs an engaged couple with a trained volunteer mentor couple for eight mentoring sessions over two to three months. A structured curriculum provides excellent preparation in areas key to a successful marriage: communication, conflict resolution, finances, intimacy, and family. The PREPARE/ENRICH inventory, an online tool that assesses a couple’s strengths and growth areas, is also used.
Volunteer Mentors are Christian couples that have been married five years or more and demonstrate maturity in their relationship with God and wisdom in their marriage.
Prerequisites for participation in Two to One:

If you do not meet these prerequisites, we recommend premarital counseling with one of the professional Christian counselors in our referral network. Each of these counselors specializes in premarital counseling and is trained to administer and interpret the PREPARE/ENRICH.
If you meet the prerequisites, the next steps are as follows:
