Thank you for your interest in serving with Two to One, a premarital ministry of Brown Bridge! Two to One is a mentoring ministry that pairs a trained volunteer mentor couple with an engaged couple for six to eight mentoring sessions over a two- to three-month period. A structured curriculum provides excellent preparation in areas key to a successful marriage—communication, conflict resolution, finances, intimacy, and family. The PREPARE/ENRICH inventory, an online tool that assesses a couple’s strengths and growth areas, is also used.
The mission of the Two to One ministry is to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by building strong marriages based on biblical principles.
Because the role of the Two to One mentors is full of opportunities for influence in the couples’ lives, we are intentional about selecting spiritually mature, emotionally and relationally healthy couples.
