Ready To Wed

Ready to Wed is a Marriage Preparation programme for young adults in the marriageable age group. We facilitate online or in person for engaged couples, dating couples, and newlyweds, and we have also extended it to single people who are interested in marriage in the future. This programme has catered to young adults, and very insightful conversations have taken place with this group that are often overlooked when it comes to programmes and discussions that have an impact on decisions that they will make at this age that will affect the rest of their lives. We have had frank, deep discussions on the importance of marriage and why people should still get married even though marriage has been modelled so badly in their families and communities. At our last training at the end of December, one couple was so convicted by the training after 8 years of dating that they are now engaged to be married and have started all the processes for their wedding.   

Ready to Wed helps you focus on the things that are most important in marriage preparations.

This programme helps young couples and individuals be intentional about their marriage journey and prepare for a lifelong marriage that they will love.
