2017 Annual Report


Join us at our 12th Annual Fundraising Event on Thursday, April 26th! We'll be celebrating all that God has done through Strong Marriages in the last year and sharing our vision for what's next.  We'll also hear from Shawn & Christina Stoever, marriage ministry experts, as they share how to experience fulfillment and joy in marriage.

The Event will take place at the Hope Center in Plano, TX. Self-parking will be available throughout the evening in the surface lot. Doors open at 6:30; dinner will be served at 7:00. Dress is business professional.


Sounds great! But why do you need table sponsors?

Strong Marriages equips couples with the training, materials, and support they need to thrive in their relationship. But this family building happens because of the financial support of partners like you. Every dollar with which we are entrusted goes to creating new resources; training more pastors and mentors; and keeping costs low for churches. In 2018, we want to grow Strong Marriages’s impact even more. But to do that, we need your help—by covering the cost of your table and inviting your friends to attend the Event with you, you can help us expand our team of supporters and transform more families.

I'd love to invite my friends, but I'm not able to pay for a sponsorship this year. How can I help?

If you're not able to sponsor a table but still have connections in the metroplex who might be interested in joining Strong Marriage's support team, we'd love for you to host a table! One of our other generous sponsors will cover the cost of your table; all you have to do is invite your friends and makes sure they feel comfortable throughout the Event!

Can I still attend the Event even if I'm not sponsoring a table?

Absolutely! Just click on the link above to purchase individual seats for $150.
