Your marriage can last a lifetime.
“... that at the beginning the creator made them male and female, and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,
and the two will become one flesh?' So they are no longer two, but one flesh.
Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
Our mission is to reinforce Matthew 19:4-6 by providing a platform that promotes God's vision for marriage by:
Educating millennials on how to have a Christ-centered marriage.
Engaging with couples through meet-ups, events and other avenues to establish a warm environment of accountability (Heb. 10:24)
Encouraging a forever mentality before and during marriage through coaching, courses, prayer and community. (1 Thes. 2:10)
MEET THE MSEFYAS
We're Joe and Marissa Msefya, a devoted husband and wife team, strong believers in Jesus Christ, loving parents, and Certified Marriage Coaches.
Our journey began back in 2009 when we crossed paths at Norfolk State University, and since then, we've celebrated nearly a decade of marriage. In 2017, we couldn't help but notice a concerning trend in our society - the diminishing value placed on the sacred institution of marriage. Driven by our deep faith and having triumphed over our own marital challenges, we felt a calling to take action.
We've braved intercultural hurdles, financial intimacy struggles, and the feeling of isolation in marriage. Our journey has touched the lives of many. Together, we've dedicated our ministry to empower and support Christian millennial couples in achieving the lasting, fulfilling marriages that God both desires and designs for them. The foundation of our mission lies in creating a tight-knit community, our cherished "village," of Christian millennial couples.
Our commitment is unwavering - we are here to guide you on your path to building the healthy, enduring marriage you've always dreamed of. Whether you choose our 2:2 coaching, individual coaching, or access our wealth of resources, we're here to support you at your own pace.
Always remember: Marriage is a journey meant to be traveled with others, not in isolation.

The Forever Marriages retreat was a true blessing to our marriage. The fun times, conversations and fellowship with other christian, millennial, married couples really helped realign our commitment to each other and to God. We all know it takes a village to help us get through challenges, and Forever Marriages has been that village for us.

The Forever Marriages Meet-ups have been a joy and enlightening experience. We have very stimulating, real, and informative conversations that are relevant to the promotion of healthy marriages. The insight gained from other couples' experience with these topics, reinforced the fact that our marriage was not atypical or in crisis, and provided the right amount of perspective that we needed on these topics. With great food, helpful conversation, and a fun and comfortable atmosphere, these meet-ups create enriching moments where growth is cultivated, and family is developed; all of which are needed to have a lasting and FOREVER MARRIAGE!!!
