Jim and Sheri founded Growthtrac Ministries — a 501(c)(3) Christian, nonprofit organization — in 2001. Jim and Sheri grew this ministry as they resourced the couples they mentored. At its inception, Growthtrac was a one-stop resource for marriage and spiritual information, but early on expanded its vision from its focus on marriage preparation to an expansive hub of Christian marriage resources.
Who We Are
Growthtrac Ministries is a Christian nonprofit media ministry — we are an organization that strengthens marriages by providing life-changing, Christ-centered resources through innovative online media.
What We Do
Last year Growthtrac impacted more than 625,000 marriages through its strategic use of online media — both Internet and radio — by preparing couples for marriage, enriching marriages, and helping hurting marriages. We’re a “marriage hub” with 4,000 pages of expert articles, author interviews, devotionals, and marriage-building resources.
Research indicates when maritally stressed couples seek assistance, they often first turn to the Internet. That’s where our organization excels. The ministry serves couples through counseling referrals, daily devotions, prayer requests, marriage assessments, premarital mentoring, forum interactions, and Gospel invitations —about 4 million such interactions last year. Eighty percent of our audience revealed Growthtrac made a positive difference in their marriage.
And, because we believe Christian music draws couples spiritually, we deliver a unique mix of worship and marriage programming on our streamed station, GrowthtracRadio.
