Our Vision

Marriage is hard even in the best of relationships. We are forced to make choices every day that can lead to the growth or the destruction of this most sacred of relationships between a man and a woman. We offer several opportunities to learn the tools necessary to fight for your marriage and walk into the great adventure that God has for you together. 

Newly Engaged?


Congratulations on your engagement! We are delighted that your wedding plans include our church! Our desire is for your marriage to be built on a strong and healthy foundation. We require all couples who desire to be married by one of our pastors or to hold their ceremony on the church campus to meet with trained marriage mentors, attend here at River Valley regularly, and agree to remain sexually pure until after the wedding ceremony.

Marriage Mentoring

After taking a professionally designed survey; you will be assigned a trained mentoring couple. This couple will walk through the results of the survey and help you develop the skills in various areas of your relationship. Topics include communication, conflict resolution, preparing a budget, expectations, etc. The survey is $35 and available in the church office.
Before any counseling, you will need to complete this information form. Print the form, complete it, and bring it with you to your first session. To discuss marriage mentoring and support contact Kathi Brown.
