DEDAN Ministry to Marriages is a nonprofit marriage ministry headquartered in Cordova, Tennessee (just outside of Memphis). Our vision at DEDAN Ministry to Marriages is to become the premiere support organization in our community, and our world, for the building and sustaining of strong marriages. Our ministry is focused not only on the building of strong marriages, but also on sustaining strong marriages by creating effective marriage mentoring programs at the local church.

Journey Christian Church is a multi-race, teaching ministry. Our vision is to see, within two generations or less, a reconciled Memphis, first to God and then to one another, that will infect the whole world. One of our passions at The Journey is saving and developing extraordinary relationships and marriages by teaching spiritual, emotional, and practical aspects of the relationships. Our mission at The Journey is to Empower Right Relationships, Share God’s Love and Teach the Children.

D’Juanna is a loving mother, a caring Registered Nurse, a faithful and devoted wife, a passionate singer and minister of the Word of the God.
