Our pastors are available to perform weddings at offsite venue locations. Weddings are not held on our campus due to church services and events that are scheduled each weekend.
Couples are asked to go through the Prepare & Enrich course and submit the online wedding application which must be received 4 months in advance of the wedding date. It’s customary to provide an honorarium for the officiating pastor who will be performing the ceremony. The suggested amount is $150, an additional $100 is suggested when venue requires driving more than 50 miles one way.
At Green Valley Community Church we believe a God-honoring marriage goes well beyond the wedding day, and we want to equip you for lifetime success. The following requirements are intended to help you and your fiancé plan a memorable ceremony as well as a lifetime of memories.
Prepare & Enrich (Required):
This is an invaluable online inventory that will assist a couple in identifying strengths and challenge areas of their relationship. Our volunteer coordinator will enroll you (bride and groom) online at the Prepare & Enrich website. You are then cleared to log on and complete the inventory (Please note: until you complete this step, we are unable to meet with you. Any delay in completing these results in an overall delay.) Once completed, you will meet 4-6 times with a trained GVCC Marriage Mentor couple who will walk you through the results. Cost: $35 per couple, pay online.
