Pastor Bryan Carter of Concord Church in Dallas wants couples to not only agree to ten weeks of counseling but to also decide upon completion if they want to get married.
“If you’re living together and you want to get married but financially it’s not a good season, we’ll take care of the tuxedo, dress and reception, Carter told a local NBC affiliate.
“We’ll help you get there.”
At the end of the pre-marital counseling, couples will have the option of walking down the aisle and saying vows in a group wedding.
While the pastor acknowledged the idea is “radical”, he said he wanted to provide couples with the tools to “follow after Christ”.
If couples decide marriage isn’t for them, the church has offered to help pay for one month’s rent if someone in the relationship will agree to move out.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
