About the Class
You and your partner will explore issues like communication, conflict resolution, finances, and faith, in a setting designed for private conversation between the two of you. More a "date night" than a classroom experience, there are no group activities to participate in.

Planning to get married at the Vineyard?

  • Couples wishing to be married in our beautiful Chapel (seats 350) or by a Vineyard Pastor are required to participate either in a course of marriage preparation approved by the marrying pastor or in the Vineyard’s own Pre-Marriage Class.
  • 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 $175 for the couple ($87.50 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.


Couple Survey

Prior to the beginning of the class, each guest couple will receive an email asking them to complete a Couple Survey online (different from the Pre-registration Survey).

Each guest couple will be assigned a support couple that will meet with you one time, following completion of the class, to review the Couple Survey. This meeting is your opportunity for individualized attention. It typically takes two hours.

The survey compares your answers with those of your partner and identifies strengths and growth areas that your support couple will discuss with you when you meet. The survey is confidential; only your support couple and pastor will see it. After you complete the classes, your support couple will provide your marrying pastor with a summary memo.

The survey questions cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Communication (effective talking, effective listening)
  • Managing conflict and anger
  • Commitment (marriage as a covenant)
  • Dealing with finances
  • Relationships with extended family
  • Sexuality
  • Family background
  • Parenting
  • Readiness for marriage

The class utilizes material from the Alpha Pre-Marriage Course and the Vineyard Pre-Marriage Teaching Team
