Jeff & Debby McElroy

Marriage Ministry Experts

In 1989, Jeff & Debby McElroy became so burdened by the breakdown of families and its impact on children and youth, they left their careers in corporate law and teaching and dedicated themselves to marriage and family ministry.


As founders of Forever Families, Inc., they have become one of the most sought-after couples on the national speaking circuit as featured speakers for churches like Willowcreek Community Church, and national programs like LifeWay’s Festivals of Marriage. The McElroys lead marriage, parenting, family and relationship conferences for church, corporate and college audiences around the country. Their FamilyReach consulting ministry also helps build stronger churches by building stronger families, and their Marriage Under Fire retreat, held here at WinShape, helps protect those families who protect ours.

As award-winning actors, Jeff & Debby are known for their comedy and creativity that commands their audience’s attention and their transparent, honest style that inspires their audience’s trust. They live in Knoxville, Tennessee and have been married since 1984.
