Gary and Trudi Wagnon both come from 20 plus year marriages that ended in divorce, and, in turning to God for His leading and guidance, found one another and have been married for 5 years. Together the Wagnon’s share 4 children.  Daniel and Elizabeth McBurney have a blended marriage as well, with Elizabeth having been divorced and Daniel never married. The McBurney’s have been married 25 years and have 5 children. TA and Pam Lowthorp were childhood school sweethearts with a long standing marriage of 26 years with two children. TA and Pam have law enforcement experience and a passion to reach those with first responder background. Pastor Brian and Karen Crane met in church and went to Bible College together and have been married 41 years, 25 of which were spent serving our country as Army Chaplain and spouse; they have 2 children.

 

    The goal of this ministry is to show couples how to have Christ Centered Marriages and teach participants on the precepts of marriage based on Biblical teachings and instructions. Each couple represents what God can do with broken people. We each bring to the table testimonies of God’s redemption and restoration.
