Mentoring the Marriage Journey prepares marriage mentors to lead marriage preparation sessions or marriage enrichment sessions using the Marriage Journey book (available from Church Publishing).

Mentoring the Marriage Journey is a training program designed to help you develop a core of lay and/or ordained marriage mentors to be part of a pastoral team and work under the supervision of the rector, associate or someone responsible for preparing couples for marriage. Marriage mentors can function in a variety of ways. They can:
    • Lead groups of three or four couples in marriage preparation group discussions on a regular basis (e.g., weekly), during two Saturdays or some other time configuration 
    • Work one-on-one with a couple 
    • Lead follow-up retreats for couples a few months or a couple of years after the wedding 
    • Build ongoing relationships with couples, meeting periodically with them for the first few years after marriage
    • Lead adult education groups for couples married for many years (the book has discussion questions for both "to-be-married" and for long-time married couples)
