Soulmates_NewsBlock_small

 

Gateway has created an incredible premarital counseling experience called Soulmates. It’s a 8-week interactive experience where couples explore the unique characteristics of their relationship with a marriage mentor while being instructed by experienced marriage communicators.

We truly believe that Soulmates offers the best pre-marital experience for couples, so we have also made it the most affordable option for couples seeking marriage at Gateway. It’s offered twice per year, once in the fall and once in the new year.

The next Soulmates Class offered at Gateway North will start Sunday, February 12th, at 2:30 PM. Cost is $40. This class is currently full. Please contact Restore@GatewayChurch.com if you’d like to be placed on our waiting list.

Wedding Officiation & Pre-Marital Counseling FAQ

What pastors are available to marry us?

We encourage you to seek a pastor at the campus you attend regularly.

At Gateway North, we have several pastors available to perform marriages. However, John Burke and Ted Beasley are not available for weddings due to their responsibilities.

At Gateway Central, Kenny Green may be available for weddings. At Gateway South, Eric Bryant, may also be available.

 

I’m getting married in a month or two (maybe less).
How can you help me?

Unfortunately, we require a 4 month lead time to ensure proper preparation has occurred time to schedule a pastor for your wedding. It is unlikely we can accommodate timeframes less than four months.

 

I filled out the “Request a Gateway Pastor Form.”
When can I expect a response?

You can typically expect a response between 1-2 weeks.

 

What if we already have an officiant?
Can we just get counseling and how much does that cost?

Absolutely. We would highly encourage you to attend the Soulmates experience. See details on class and Honorarium Fee document above. 

 

Can I have my wedding at Gateway?

Unfortunately, Gateway does not offer facilities for weddings at this time.
