Developing Strong Foundations for a Lasting Marriage

A strong foundation is essential for a strong marriage. SJSM is committed to helping couples who are looking at the possibility of marriage or preparing for marriage understand and build such a foundation. The Marriage Preparation Course (MPC) aims to do this by equipping couples with the tools and skills needed for a healthy and lasting marriage. This course is compulsory for members who intend to get married in and by SJSM.

What is the MPC?

The course traces God’s plan for a fulfilling marriage, the fundamental roles expected of husband and wife, and deals with essential tools every marriage needs. Through videos, lectures, discussions and use of a psychometric tool (PREPARE), you will be able to discuss, explore and practise these tools.


You will look at:

• Biblical Perspective of Marriage

• The Art of Communication

• Importance of Commitment

• Resolving Conflict

• Keeping Love Alive

• Sharing Goals and Values

• Financial Planning


The couple will also be required to serve in the SJSM Children’s Ministry for an approximate period of 2 months during or after the MPC. This duty must be completed as part of the Marriage Preparation Process to prepare couples for parenthood, even if parenthood is not something settled yet for a couple intending to be married.
