helping married couples Discover a life-giving adventure through jesus Christ.

Marriage is an adventure,
where the journey is the destination. Our desire is to help you and your spouse experience an abundant, life-giving adventure through the power of the indwelling life of Christ. 

Marriages are never static. We are moving in a positive or negative direction. We are more likely to reach a positive destination if we know where we are going. In The Marriage Adventure, Daniel and Bonnie Hoover, offer practical steps in co-operating with God to clarify the purpose and mission of your marriage; thus making your marriage a positive, God honoring adventure.

About the Marriage adventure

We’re Daniel & Bonnie Hoover, and one of our greatest joys is tackling this Adventure of life, family, and ministry together as intimate friends! After years of walking with couples through their most difficult seasons of marriage, we’ve seen that the enemy has launched an assault on the core of the church… marriages and the family. Our hearts have been broken, and God has given us a massive calling to help couples develop healthy biblical marriages. We pray that you will join us on this journey of the highs, the lows, and everything in between, and you’ll experience marriage as the Adventure God has designed it to be.
