Curt & Rhonda Hamner

Marriage Ministry Experts


Meet the Hamners


Curt and Rhonda Hamner have coached, counseled and lead marriage weekends for over 25 years. The Hamners bring unique insights to the marriage relationship from the Scriptures, research and their nearly 40-year partnership in pastoral ministry and marriage.


Curt and Rhonda Hamner have been married for over forty-two years; they bring a collection of personal and professional experience to every conversation.

After 25 years in the pastorate they begin using these skills and gifts to encourage and resource others to have meaningful conversations that moved them toward God’s design for marriage. Between Two Trees Ministries was born out of that desire, focused around the idea of hosting couples in enriching environments, providing the best of biblical teaching and research tools to talk about the growth of their marriage safely. They host these events from the High Sierras of California to Georgia to the Highlands of Scotland, as well as in their living room. They have mentored couples for years and have made their passion available to others in their recent book, Marriage Its Foundation, Theology and Mission in a Changing World.

The Hamners have three adult children and five grandchildren. They live in the mountains of Southern California where they enjoy hiking, landscaping their yard, quick trips to the beach. Rhonda is a master chef who studied at Long Beach State University and Talbot Seminary. Curt is a graduate of Dallas Seminary and has a growing love for fly fishing.
