Marriages by Design (MBD) was started in 2003 by Todd Carter
, Brian Frizzell
, and Barry Hogan
as a ministry to marriages at a church of over 5,000 in Springfield, MO. Todd is co-owner and founder of two businesses that specialize in computer training
and audio video
. Brian, a licensed professional counselor and former pastor, owns and operates a counseling agency
. Barry has started and grown a furniture business and has served in many capacities as a church leader.The centerpiece of the program is A Forty-Day Study
written by Brian to help couples grow and strengthen their marital relationships. This study is an integral part of the MBD model classroom that is being conducted on a weekly basis in their local church. The class is set up to attract and keep the attention of men while meeting the needs of both members of the marriage. The team would like to replicate this very successful service to marriages on a greater scale. With this in mind they have developed this dynamic Web site and companion DVD
for the support of marriages and marriage ministries.
