Pre-Marital & Marital Christian Counseling

Marriage was created by God for the display of His glory and for the joy of His creatures. Through this gift, we are called to consider not only God’s covenantal love but also His incredible patience and unconditional mercy toward His beloved. Because this takes effort and intentionality, we strongly encourage engaged couples to supplement their marriage preparation through formal premarital Christian counseling at least 6 months before your wedding.

All couples about to be married, are taken through a program called FOCCUS: Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding & Study. Some of the topics we cover are Family of Origin, Intimacy, Religion, Spirituality, Value, Communication, Readiness Issues, Problem Solving, Parenting Issues, Friends and Interests.

Note: First Baptist Forney provides Christian Pastoral Counseling governed by the local church and not via a state-licensed agency.
