Touching: We are faith-based - Biblical truths are our foundation to inspire and encourage one another toward healthy marital relationships.
Whether you feel lost, hurt, or simply want to keep your relationship strong, SOL provides programs that support, educate and helps couples grow and heal. Sessions are held at venues throughout the Atlanta area and are free of charge. By empowering couples with rich biblical principles and communication tools, SOL encourages couples to work toward the many positive outcomes of stable relationships. No matter what sparks your interest, please join us at our next gathering for a wonderful romantic evening for dinner and fellowship. We affirm the value and virtue of marriage in both the church and for the good of the community: "Walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us" (Eph 5:2).
Our vision is a nation where husband and wife relationships are founded in biblical values leading to stable families and communities that leaves a legacy of hope for the next generation.
Our mission is 1) to help husbands and wives stimulate excitement about their marriage relationships by providing them with a network and forum for sharing and learning from real life issues and pragmatic experience and 2) to equip couples with tools and resources that help build healthy and meaningful relationships.
Our values define who we are as an organization, what we stand for and our abilities to be ambassador of the kingdom of God.
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” (Prov 27:17).
Listening: Listening to people and honoring the stories they share.
Sharing: we provide a safe and supportive environment for couples to honor and share their stories.
Keeping Vows: Committing to faithful prayer, stewardship, integrity, and acting to honor God in all that we do.
Watching: We believe strengthening marriages will cause a turnaround movement in our communities, culture and society.
Praying: “Pray always” (Luke 18:1).
Inspiring: Inspiring and reaching others for Christ through the betterment of the marriage relationships.
After serving many years in Boston as pastors, we moved to Atlanta. It became clear that God was leading us to encourage and empower couples in their relationships. In 2009, we formed Spring of Life Couples Ministries. Our desire is to help couples find joy in their marriage, equip and empower couples for healthy relationships through Christ, and improve community stability. God joined man and woman in the Garden of Eden (Gen 2) placing marriage as the foundation of our communities. If couples are unhappy, all the surrounding lives are affected. Through Christ, prayer and some effort, couples can find joy and wholeness.
In 2012, we are launching a movement called “Keep your Vows Revolution.” This is a campaign to promote couples to pledge to honor their vows to one another.
We would love to have the opportunity to meet you at one of our gatherings. Please email us at:
