Jeff & Cheryl Scruggs are the founders of Hope Matters Marriage Ministries, a 501c3 non-profit Christian non-denominational organization. Their ministry includes sharing God’s heart for marriage and relationships through Biblical counseling, writing and speaking. They passionately seek to help make marriages whole in God’s power. We train, teach and disciple believers from the Word of God, to help them understand their true identity in Jesus Christ, so that they can live out an abundant marriage. Jeff & Cheryl are intimately familiar with a marriage focused on the principles of the world, the sting, heartbreak and pain from a divorce, and the deep rooted hope and joy of a fully restored marriage centered on Jesus Christ. It is this unique perspective and experience that they obediently share in private couple to couple, and individual appointments and with audiences nationwide.
