Our Marriage Philosophy
At Hosanna Church, we're dedicated to building marriages that grow, prosper and thrive. We value marriage and we want to come alongside you in your journey. Whether you’re newly married or need support and practical tools to work through some tough issues, Hosanna Church is here to help you foster a Jesus-centered marriage.
Weddings at Hosanna Church are available at all campuses and are open to both partners and guests. You are also welcome to book a Hosanna Church pastor to officiate your offsite wedding. Before your wedding, you will be asked to attend our Marriage Prep Course and spend about 8 hours with a mentor couple. We recommend you begin this preparation process 9-15 months prior to your wedding.

Do you see others’ potential and like to highlight it? You may make a great marriage mentor. Mentors are needed in the areas of marriage and pre-marriage. Marriage Mentors are not counselors, but those who encourage, guide, and support couples. Marriage Mentors create a safe environment to review concerns or enrich the quality of a marriage.
