Doug was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon, while Sissy is a native of Houston, Texas. After both going through the painful process of divorce, they were blessed with finding one another and growing in a very fulfilling marriage. This couple is passionate about helping couples do the hard work on the front-end of their marriage to help avoid the need for "damage control" down the road!
The Pitchers are Certified SYMBIS Facilitators, Marriage on the Rock Certified leaders through Jimmy Evans of Marriage Today as well as licensed ministers through The Freedom Center Church in Missouri City, Texas. They are service providers for Twogether in Texas. They have received additional training in single-parent and step-family relationships. Doug and Sissy have facilitated Marriage Enrichment workshops, study of The Right One (Evans & Martin, 2015), and 2B1 Marriage Ministry meetings as well as pre-marriage preparation for individual couples.
The Pitchers’ combination of church involvement and leadership roles have equipped them to pursue their calling of Pitcher Ministries Inc. and “Pouring God’s Design into Relationships.”
As they provide an additional instrument for the body of Believers, Pitcher Ministries is available to host meetings in any area and welcomes the opportunity to help strengthen and educate future and established marriages.
