Dave and Melissa McCrery were married in 1999, after a five-month whirlwind of dating after they each experienced the pain of divorce. Although both of them had been raised in the church, neither were living a Christian life when they met and their relationship quickly spiraled out of control. The “honeymoon phase” quickly gave way to a relationship void of love and respect; dominated by deception, betrayal, broken promises, and shattered trust.
After years of following the path of various addictions, traveling down some very dark roads, they found themselves on the brink of destruction. Numerous times they sought out help from both secular and religious leaders and counselors, only to be left without any real answers or the hope they needed. They felt powerless to change the direction they were going. In their darkest season, and when all hope seemed lost, they stood alone and betrayed at the end of themselves.
It was at this point that God intervened and lead them down a new path of discovery, pioneering and building a highway for others to travel as they restored their identity, their marriage, and their family back to the Father’s original intent and design.
Since then Dave and Melissa have been passionately pursuing their call to see couples fully walking in both the purity and power available to them through the restoration of covenant. For many years they received prophetic words from powerful ministries around the world about the direction God was leading them, but they were in the process and in the waiting. Finally, in 2019 the vision for Marriage Out Of The Box was realized.
It is their core belief that, “As the family goes, so goes the nation”, and that the revelatory breakthrough they carry for marriage and family will change the course of this nation, which will in turn, extend that influence throughout the world.
