It’s never been more important to walk alongside young couples in relational ministry
  • Young marrieds are feeling overwhelmed navigating the early days (or years!) of marriage as they have never seen it modeled for them.
  • Most are biblically illiterate and have not learned the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith.
  • Many have never identified their spiritual gifts or been equipped with ministry skills to lead in the church.
  • Sadly, most are not serving together in the local church or intentionally investing to further God’s kingdom.
A Disciple-Making Marriage

We define a disciple-making marriage as couples who can enter into relationships intentionally to help others follow Jesus, be changed by Jesus, and join the mission of Jesus (Matt 4:19, Matt 28:18-20).

We aim to develop the next generation of married couples, who are equipped to live out the great commission (Matt 28:18-20) by loving God, loving people, and making disciples of Jesus Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision is to equip 10,000 couples on the journey to become Disciple-Making Marriages.

pathway of discipleship

We provide a pathway of discipleship for young marrieds eager to follow, trust, and obey Jesus in everyday life. Our prayer is that these couples would grow in their understanding of God’s word, Christian doctrine, and practicing the spiritual disciplines, something our friend, J.T. English calls Deep Discipleship. In providing these couples with the knowledge, skills, and values to become kingdom-minded, disciple-making couples who are:

  • Committed to being disciples of Jesus (Matt 4:19) and making disciples of Jesus (Matt 28:18-20)
  • Have a firm foundation in their understanding  and obedience of God’s word (Matt 7:24)
  • Doing ministry together out of the overflow of the heart (Luke 6:45)
  • Equipped for the burden-bearing of marriage and ministry (Eph 4:12, Gal 6:2)
  • Living in marital oneness out of intimacy in mind, body, and spirit (Eph 5:31-33)
  • Committed to disciple their kids and others to love God with all their heart, all their soul, and with all their might (Deut 6:4-5)

Ministry Testimonials

Having known Michael and Holly for years I had the sacred privilege of doing their pre-marital counseling and performing their wedding. It's been a privilege continuing to be their friend as they step further into serving our Triune God, and many others, in unique and creative ways. Their leadership, teaching, mentoring are not only welcome in our world, but significantly needed when it comes to marriage. Under their leadership and care, you will find yourself released further into whom you were also designed to be, and what you are to do with that, as your own life continues to unfold.

How we are walking alongside young marrieds

We are equipping these couples through life-on-life training, teaching, and modeling—by the power of the Holy Spirit—that produces the change to become more like Jesus.

Premarital Counseling

We walk alongside engaged couples by going through an 8-week, gospel-guided journey to marriage.

Small Group

We will be forming a small group of ~5 couples to do life-on-life discipleship and training.

Discipleship Resources

We will be creating resources to help equip couples and churches globally.

We’ve been there.

We know what it’s like to struggle in the early days of marriage. We’ve been married for over 13 years, have three kids, and have spent the last 10+ years ministering to couples who want to model their marriage after God’s design.

Young Married Testimonials

Mike and Holly were the highlight of the year meeting with them for our pre-marital counseling. Their wisdom, grounding in the Gospel, and practical martial preparation was incredibly valuable! They truly are living each day for the Lord in how they desire to serve couples.

Caleb and April Guillams

Mike and Holly have been an incredible source of life and encouragement for us in the first couple years of marriage and ministry. They truly have a gift for cultivating authentic community and it has transformed our marriage and disciple-making.
