Dave and Cristina played an incredible role in our marriage. We went through some dark times a few years back and having them as friends and mentors played a huge role in our healing. A few big things about D + C that I really appreciated were the fact that nothing came as a shock to them. They never seemed alarmed or thrown off by our problems and they quickly loved on us. No shame, no guilt, just a gentle push toward healing. We are forever grateful for the role they have played in our marriage. God used them at our lowest point to help us step into grace and healing and freedom! We love them and are incredible grateful to know them!

We were comfortable with Dave and Cristina from the very first time we met them! They felt like old friends, which made it so easy to talk with them about our relationship and our future together as a married couple. They never sugar-coated the difficulties that can come along with marriage, but encouraged us to have the tough conversations and to know that a good marriage is worth putting in the work. They also taught us to surround ourselves with people who support our marriage, which is an ideal that will always stay with us as we meet new people in different walks of life. Dave and Cristina really helped us to understand what it takes to have a healthy, happy marriage, and we are forever grateful for them.

Dave and Cristina helped us realize that we had to stop being so selfish in our marriage. We are grateful that they always pointed us back to the truth of Scripture and learning how to handle conflicts better made us even better connected as a couple. L & E / Arizona
As we have grown in the Lord together, there have been countless moments Dave and Cristina have encouraged us and lead us back to Jesus. Dave and Cristina have consistently been a safe place to share our struggles, our pain, our shame and they have met us with love and compassion every time. While we always need encouragement, they also don’t shy away from lovingly calling us up and challenging us to die to ourselves for the sake of each other and our marriage. We trust Dave and Cristina to gently lead us back to the cross. They love us and truly care for our souls. They also make us laugh… which is always a plus.

One word to describe Dave and Cristina would be Authentic. We were going through some serious things in our marriage when we first moved to Arizona 3 years ago and needed someone to talk to quickly. We were new to church and looked on the website to find someone to talk to. Dave got back to us within hours and scheduled a time to talk with us on his day off. We immediately felt like we could be ourselves and tell him everything without being judged. Since then, we have met with him and his wife Cristina many times. They are the most real and genuine couple you will ever meet and we are so happy we have had the blessing of knowing them. You will be so glad to have them as mentors! A & D
Pastor Dave and Cristina Emigh came into my life at a time when I felt so broken and defeated. They were gracious and warm, offering encouragement and guidance through sharing the word of God in a way that was relevant to my situation. I had just really met them and yet knew in those moments that I could trust to share my world with them. What I loved most about Cristina is that while gentle and gracious, she was not shy about telling me when I needed to do some self-reflecting which I definitely needed to hear. My husband and I are very grateful for their time and attention in our time of need then and for following up with us to ensure we are still doing ok. I look forward to more encouragement, wisdom and laughs from the Emigh’s on this new podcast. ~Jessica & Bryan L.
