Marriage Ministry Resources :: About Us

MMRlogo.pngMarriage Ministry Resources was founded to “strengthen Christian marriages.” The creators of MMR recognize the profound need that married couples have for meaning and skills to help them create stable and satisfying relationships. The founders also recognized the need of those who minister to couples to have quality resources to assist couples in strengthening their relationships. The information and tools offered by MMR combine a Christian vision of marriage with the findings from scientific research which indicate what works and what doesn’t work in marriages. Thus, MMR attempts to offer couples, and those who minister to them, both inspiration and practical help.

The creators of MMR are  Paul T. Ceasar, Ed.D., L.P.C. and Darryl Ducote, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.
