Our Story

We met 25 years ago, and after a whirlwind 6 months courtship, we got married, quit our jobs and followed God’s call into ministry by going to seminary. But the first few years were very difficult for us, and through God’s help, mentors and hard work we were able to grow a strong marriage.

If we can do it, there is hope for everyone! We are passionate about marriage because we believe that it is the foundation for a strong family and that it is a great picture of Christ’s love for the church. Come join us as we walk with you to growing a strong marriage!
