At Exilic, we encourage couples who are thinking about getting married to participate in pre-engagement/pre-marital counseling.* Most churches just provide pre-marital counseling, but at Exilic, we suggest pre-engagement counseling for couples who plan on getting engaged in the next 3-5 months. We believe it is more beneficial to go through counseling before engagement rather than after. Please submit the application below and one of our pastors will contact you as soon as possible.
Curriculum: "What Did You Expect?" by Paul Tripp
Course: 3 Two-hour Sessions, 1 Follow-up Session (6 mos. post-wedding)
*You or your partner must be an official member of Exilic Church prior to counseling.
If you are already engaged, congratulations on your engagement and upcoming ceremony! To request an Exilic pastor to officiate your wedding, please make sure you meet the requirements and complete the application below.
For an Exilic pastor to officiate your wedding,
1. You or your fiancé must be an official member of Exilic Church
2. You and your fiancé have completed pre-engagement/pre-marital counseling either through Exilic or another church
The officiant will meet with the couple for a ceremony planning session in addition to the wedding rehearsal prior to the wedding date.
Please note: Whether the ceremony is out-of-town or not, the couple should be prepared to cover any and all travel and lodging expenses (flight, hotel, rental car, parking fees, etc.) for the officiant. A suggested honorarium of at least $350 is recommended to cover any additional expenses that may arise during the counseling and planning sessions, rehearsal, and ceremony. This should be paid directly to the officiant.
