Plan the
marriage and not just the wedding!
“Dr. Collins has the unique gift
of guiding couples from planning a ceremony to establishing a happy and lasting
marriage.  His wisdom and joy did
this for us 23 years ago”   Hunter and Missy Keith
“While planning our wedding, Dr.
Collins opened our eyes to view marriage as a covenant and not just a legal
contract.  We have our agreements
of ‘Fighting Fair’ framed on our bedroom wall to remind us that love is
patient, kind, and keeps no record of wrongs once forgiven.”  Billy and Brittany Glynn
“We just wanted to get married
when we met with Dr. Collins in 1988. 
However, our premarital counseling led us to a closer relationship with
Jesus Christ who made our Covenant of Marriage possible.  We used our chalice for communion in
our wedding to witness Christ as the central person in our lives.”  John and Teri McIntyre
“Our marriage was blessed from
the start when the Lord brought us to Dr. Collins.  He taught us the ‘Four Goals of Marriage’ which have
encouraged us to grow together with our Lord as the third person in our
Covenant.  We are realizing the
true gift and joy of a happy marriage.” 
and Denise Flynn
