Since 2003, Marriages By Design has helped hundreds of couples in four ways – save marriages on the brink of divorce, restore marriages that need work, take good marriages to the next level and help those with great marriages strengthen other marriages.

Marriages By Design is a total marriage enhancing and rebuilding program.

Developed by a licensed counselor with 20 years of experience and originally launched at James River Assembly in Springfield, Missouri, Marriages By Design merges solid Biblical principles and the counseling expertise of the founding members and their spouses with wisdom, accountability and support.

Marriages By Design bridges the gap between church fellowship and counseling to provide direction and mentorship for couples in a Christian context.

The Web site also allows you to upload your group’s ideas, inspiration and discoveries, offering everyone the benefits of the synergy of other churches using Marriages By Design.
