Getting married is an exciting time in life and we are very happy to guide you through the process of how Crossroads can be a part of your great day, and help shape the marriage that follows.
Crossroads is committed to helping couples enter marriage in a committed and Biblical way. It is our desire to help couples create a solid foundation that will make a lasting covenant. For information about our policies and procedures, you can download a copy of our. "Policies & Procedures Manual," Click Here. This document contains information about using our facility for weddings, and who may be married at Crossroads, etc.
STEP 1 – Select a Pastor to Officiate Your Ceremony
If you are not using a Crossroad’s Pastor to marry you, but you would like pre-marital counseling through Crossroads or to use our facility, then you must still select a Crossroad’s Pastor to sponsor you through this process. You can contact any of our pastors by phone by calling 919.981.0222.
STEP 2 – Complete A Wedding Questionnaire
Each person getting married must complete a, "Crossroads Wedding Questionnaire," Click Here. The form will be electronically sent to the Pastor you have requested to officiate your wedding, or to your Sponsoring Pastor.
STEP 3 – Secure the Date & Location of the Wedding
If you are planning on using our Church Building on your wedding day, your sponsoring pastor can work with our facilities department to secure a particular room for the ceremony or reception. See our, "Policies and Procedures Manual," Click Here for details, or you can contact an administrative support person in the Facilities Department at 919.981.0222.
STEP 4 – Complete a Premarital Counseling Process
All couples getting married at Crossroads are asked to participate in a premarital counseling process. The typical process for this is through our Pre-Marriage Mentoring Team. This is a team of trained mentors who meet with you several times prior to your marriage and often continue this mentoring relationship through the first year of marriage. You must be referred to the pre-marriage mentoring team by your Sponsoring Pastor.
