Premier Christian Marriage Counseling Programs


For Couples in Crisis... You can still put the pieces back together

Right now, your situation may feel like two people, too far apart, with too much damage done to save the marriage. But before you and your spouse close the door forever, you owe it to yourselves and possibly your children to give saving this marriage one more try.


Marriage Intensives

Thousands of marriages, situations as complex and painful as yours, have been transformed with the help of professionals who understand where you are right now and care deeply about where you and your spouse wind up in the future. Marriage Intensives through the National Institute of Marriage are personalized, intimate programs for restoring individuals and rebuilding marriages. Our all-inclusive programs are more than couples counseling, more than a plan to stop divorce or a weekend session at a church. Marriage Intensives are new beginnings, even for husbands and wives who think all hope is lost.

Bryan & Amy's Testimony

Our marriage intensive programs are like “marriage ER.” We hear many testimonies from couples whose relationships were literally on the ropes—they were headed for divorce court. But at that moment of crisis, our team at NIM was able to help them turn things around and start down the road to healing and restoration.Jim Daly
