About Pre-Marital Care
Sojourn provides free Pre-Marital Care (PMC) free for Sojourn members or those in the membership process. If you are a member preparing to be married, Sojourn PMC is required, regardless of your wedding location.
After turning in your completed Marriage Preparation Inventories and Informed Consent Form, you will be assigned to one of our trained marriage mentors to take you through PMC. We use our own material, plus a selected book to supplement the PMC sessions. We typically schedule PMC 12 weeks before your wedding—six two-hour sessions, spaced out every other week. The last session, which deals with the marriage bed, is scheduled no more than two weeks prior to the wedding.
Scheduling is sometimes more difficult if a fiance lives in another city or you have unusual work schedules. We ask you to be flexible and accommodating since our mentors have time demands and constraints as well. We also ask you to consider the importance of PMC by making the scheduling a priority.
Once complete, you will need to email your inventories and Informed Consent forms to Mary Barker.
