Marriage Application

Future Husbands and Wives,

Getting married is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your lifetime. Because of the magnitude of this decision, we believe that it is of the utmost importance that a couple be encouraged, fully informed, and instructed in God’s design for marriage.

For this reason, pre-marriage discipleship is a requirement for those who want a Calvary Chapel Clayton pastor to perform their marriage ceremony. Please note, however, that filling out an application and fulfilling the pre-marriage discipleship requirement is not a guarantee that the pastors of Calvary Chapel Clayton will be able to perform your wedding ceremony. If you desire one of our pastors to perform the service, you must clear this date with him personally.

We have found that pre-marriage discipleship is an invaluable tool that encourages the couple to discuss all aspects of the marriage relationship before saying "I do." Our pre-marital discipleship is 6 sessions. These sessions involve you meeting with a pastor to discuss several different areas that will affect your marriage.

These 6 sessions include:
1. God's Intent for your Marriage
2. Love and Covenant
3. Roles and Responsibilities
4. Communication
5. Forgiveness
6. Resolving Conflict

We encourage couples to finish all 6 sessions at least 1-2 months before their wedding date. The 6 sessions can take about 3-6 months to complete.

It is our desire to encourage you and instruct you from a foundation of God’s Word and His design for the marriage relationship. We are committed to building relationships and marriages that not only last a lifetime, but thrive and are healthy as well. We believe that by building strong marriages we can impact families and strengthen the Lord’s church. May the Lord bless you as you seek Him regarding your future marriage.

Please note: A Calvary Chapel Pastor will officiate your wedding at no cost, but you are more than welcome to donate to the Pastor, considering his travel and time. However, if you are hosting your wedding out of town, it's recommended that you provide travel arrangements and/or lodging. If you are financially unable to provide travel arrangements and/or lodging, please let the Pastor know ahead of time.
