Your marriage can last a lifetime.
“... ‘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.”
MEET THE MSEFYAS
We are Joseph and Marissa Msefya - Christian millennial husband and wife, parents, and Certified Marriage Coaches.
We met on the campus of Norfolk State University in 2009 and have been married for seven years. In 2017, we noticed what seemed to be a rapid shift in our culture to devalue the institution of marriage. Moved by the dire need to spread God's vision for marriage, and overcoming our own marital challenges, we decided to do something! Having endured intercultural barriers, financial intimacy battles and a lack of community in marriage, their testimony has inspired many others. Together we have dedicated our ministry to equipping and supporting Christian millennial couples for the healthy lifelong marriages God both desires and has designed for them. Building and cultivating a community, or “village” (as we lovingly refer to it), of Christian millennial couples is where our work of spreading the message of forever marriages began.
We are committed to helping you build the healthy forever marriage you desire! Whether its through 2:2 coaching, individual coaching, or taking part of the resources offered, we are here to walk with you at your own pace.
Remember: Marriage is not designed to be done in isolation.
WE BELIEVE God is the author of marriage.
WE BELIEVE in the covenant of marriage.
WE BELIEVE healthy marriages require villages (community).
WE BELIEVE marriage requires a shift emotionally, physically and spiritually.
WE BELIEVE in continual learning through books, workshops, devotionals.
WE BELIEVE in forever.
Our mission is to reinforce Matthew 19:6 by providing a platform that promotes God's vision for marriage by:
Educating the world on how to have life long Christ-centered marriages.
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 Thess. 2:10)
TRE & MAX SCHULBAUM
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.

PORSHA & HOLLAND HARGROVE
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!!!
