Meet the UME Leadership Couples
Jerry and Carol Webb

Jerry and Carol Webb

We want every couple to experience joy and God given unity in their marriage relationships. We believe this is possible as couples grow in relationship with each other and God by using the tool of dialogue and making daily decisions to love. We have a passion for all children to live in Christ centered homes where parents are making their marriage a priority.

Since our first UME Weekend we have had a passion to see every marriage healed, whole and on a solid Christian foundation. Observing the devastation around the world caused by rising divorce rates and a redefinition of marriage, our passion is for the UME weekends and UME communities to be that beacon of hope.  Our passion is to partner with God to help UME couples demonstrate Christ’s love by encountering and serving couples all over the world.

Steve & Cheryl Swallow

God truly transformed our marriage and lives on our original Weekend. He instilled in us a call and passion to serve Him by serving other married couples. We see God’s plan for marriage under attack every day around us. We do not want to sit on the sidelines waiting for others to “do something”. We believe UME to be the tool God has given us to show His plan for marriages to the world.

John & Jeanetta Ma

We believe strong marriages build strong communities, and strong communities build strong nations. We believe in the goals of United Marriage Encounter and inclusion of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as part of a strong marriage. The communication skills taught by UME has helped us improve our marriage and we want to share that same opportunities to every marriage – where much is given, much is expected. We have been blessed and we want the opportunity to bless others.

Dale & Sharon Bradley

God instituted marriage between one man and one woman in His very first book of the Bible.  He blessed it and said it was “very good.”  (Genesis 1:31) Our heart-felt desire for marriage, through United Marriage Encounter, is to see couples be open to God’s leading in their marriage, as He guides them to a stronger and closer relationship.  Our prayer would be that more couples could say it is “very good.”

Bruce & Janet Adams

Our marriage has been blessed by UME and we want to pass that blessing on to others. Our prayer is the Maryland Community will always have a weekend to fill as the LORD puts couples in our paths who He might be calling to a weekend. We give testimony to seeing marriages transformed by weekends and CORE participation as God’s plan for marriage and the Gospel of grace unfolds in couple dialogue.
