Notes from the nonprofit

We are fundamentally a organization based and focused on Christian teachings. No one is required to be a Christian to utilize our services. We offer Christian principle based services to anyone.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Starting with the Christian Church, we aim to reduce divorce by helping couples improve their marriages to be the deeply intimate relationship it was designed to be.

Offer mediation to couples divorcing, in hopes of preventing the kids from being "weaponized" in the battle between parents.
Offer marital counseling to improve marriage and prevent divorce.
Offer marital coaching to help good marriages become great marriages.
Train pastors, lay, and professional counselors to use effective relationship enhancement tools to help couples and families.

We currently are capable of reaching up to five times as many people as we did last year, with capacity being able to be increased quickly when reaching current limits.

Despite COVID, we helped more than 600 couples last year to improve their marriages and 450 families be strengthened.
Our goal for this year is to double that.
