About the Class
You and your partner will explore issues like communication, conflict resolution, finances, and faith.

This is a great opportunity to learn how closely you two agree on these topics, and even look at couples around the country who are experiencing successful marriages.

Planning to get married at the Vineyard?

  • Attending approved pre-marriage classes is REQUIRED for those wishing to be married in our beautiful Chapel (seats 350) or by a Vineyard Pastor. See below for information and registration for the Vineyard Pre-marriage classes.
  • Contact DeDe at if you will be using an alternative pre-marriage preparation.

  • You must attend all the dates in the class session.

Registration Info

  • This class is $125 for the couple ($62.50 each) and is payable at the time of registration (by the person registering).
  • Only one person of the couple needs to register and pay, but it would help if the partner is available to answer questions on the Pre-Registration Survey.
  • Please be sure to register below by the deadline.

When is this class offered? We offer pre-marriage classes 3x throughout the year in February, June, and October. We recommend that couples who are engaged register for classes 6-12 months prior to their wedding date.

If you have further questions, please contact DeDe at 513-671-0422 Ext. 393.


Pre-Marriage Inventory

Approximately one month before the Pre-Marriage Class starts, you will receive an email asking each of you to complete a Pre-Marriage Inventory online (different from the Pre-registration Survey).

Each couple attending the class will be assigned a mentor couple the first night of class and will meet with this couple one-time following class to review the Pre-Marriage Inventory. This meeting is your opportunity for individualized attention. It typically takes two hours.

This inventory compares your answers with those of your partner and identifies strength and growth areas for you to discuss in class. The inventory is confidential; only your mentor couple and pastor will see it. It is copyrighted and remains at church for your use during the class. After you complete the classes, your mentor couple will provide your marrying Pastor with a summary memo.

The inventory covers the same topics which are covered in the sessions:

1. Family of Origin (how the family you grew up in impacts the family you are creating together)

2. Communication

3. Conflict & Anger

4. Sex & Intimacy (we like to let couples know in advance that we teach God's plan is for sexual intimacy in marriage)

5. Finances

6. Blending Families (if either of you has children)

7. Re-Marriage (if either of you has been married before)

8. Growth & Planning for the Future

The classes are taught by couples from the Pre-Marriage Teaching Team.
