About the Coaches
Your Coaching Team
As Dave and Penny's marriage nearly ended, Jesus gave them a promise, "Out of a united marriage will come the outflow of ministry". Not knowing how this would happen, He gave them a faithful couple who journeyed along side, instilling biblical truths that preserved, healed, and rebuilt their hearts and home. Today Jesus is fulfilling his promise. He gave them the name Imagine Beautiful and a coaching approach to work as a team. Dave and Penny pour into each couple biblical principles that unite, and grow marriages. They have been married 36 years. Their two adult children are married and have blessed them with three granddaughters.
