Weddings & Pre-Marriage Seminars
We are excited for you both and are looking forward to working with you as you prepare for married life!
At Eagle Brook Church, we believe that couples that place Jesus at the center of their relationship will experience their best marriage possible. Our desire is to help you prepare for marriage and to assist in planning a Christ-centered ceremony that is a reflection of your faith and walk with Christ.
We do not host weddings on-site at any Eagle Brook Church location, but our pastors are available to officiate weddings at venues throughout the Twin Cities and Rochester. Couples that wish to be married by Eagle Brook Church need to take the following steps:
Step 1: Contact Us
We'd love to hear from you! Take moment to complete the Wedding Officiant Request & Personal Profiles Form so we can learn more about you and your wedding plans. Please plan to complete this form 6-9 months prior to your wedding date.
Prior to starting the form, here are a few items to prepare to answer with your future spouse:
- Your Story
- Pastor Preference
- Rehearsal and Ceremony Information
- Bride and Groom's Relationship With Jesus
Step 2: Attend a Pre-Marriage Seminar
Our pre-marriage seminar is a requirement for those getting married by an Eagle Brook pastor, and helps couples begin their marriage on the right foot and spiritual foundation. The cost of the seminar is $75 per couple. View some upcoming dates, below:
In consideration of public health concerns related to COVID-19, we have decided to suspend our pre-marriage seminars until further notice.
Step 3: Meet with an Eagle Brook Pastor
Please plan to meet with your officiating pastor for two sessions of approximately 2 hours each. These sessions, combined with attending an Eagle Brook pre-marriage seminar, will complete the 12 required hours for receiving a marriage license discount.
As part of your marriage preparation, you will also go through the SYMBIS Pre-Marriage Assessment. The cost is $35 per couple, and you will receive an invitation to take the assessment from your Eagle Brook pastor.
