Eric and Rachel's Bio:
Eric and Rachel Dufour, prominent counselors and international speakers, passionately believe in healthy marriages, healthy families and healthy servants of God.
As they began their church planting ministry in France in 1991, they focused on women in distress and drug addicts. In 2000, they and their five young sons left the safety of their passport country to answer the call of the great commission in a communist country in Southeast Asia. Serving God on the mission field was very challenging but He used their painful journey, through a life-threatening cancer and the depression that ensued, to shape their ministry.
In 2008, the focus of the Dufour's ministry changed. They moved to Colorado and began offering comprehensive marriage counseling to pastors and missionaries from all over the globe. Serving Alongside Ministry (SAM), the organization they founded, uses strategically located retreat centers all around the world to provide week-long, intensive marriage counseling sessions for those who have dedicated their lives to growing the kingdom of God.
