Question: We just signed up for the pre-marital ministry at Summit and noticed that we’ll mainly be meeting with marriage mentors instead of more traditional meetings with a counselor or pastor. We wanted to know what the advantages are that caused the church to choose this model and anything you might advise us about how to get the most out of this opportunity. Would you mind helping with these questions?
