What are people saying about the Center For Enriching Relationships?


"I have been aware of and involved with helping the Center for Enriching Relationships in San Diego since its inception.  I applaud the work they are seeking to do to strengthen marriages and families by providing quality ministry for churches and others who want to see marriages and families become all that God wants them to be."

Dr. Gary Smalley

An advisor to The Center for Enriching Relationships wrote to the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries, Charles "Chuck" Colson, asking for an endorsement of what CER was doing in the San Diego area to strengthen marriages. Colson wrote back the following endorsement:

"Three cheers!... I have been familiar with his work from the beginning and endorse it with enthusiasm. The preservation of marriage, rooted as it is so profoundly in the creation covenant, is one of the highest priorities for Christians today."

Chuck Colson, Founder
Prison Fellowship Ministries

"I have the highest regard for the professional Christian therapy you and your wife offer through your ministry.  A ministry such as yours, mainly to pastors, is both unique and tremendously needed.  You have my, and my wife Kathleen’s, continuing prayer that your ministry can be helpful to many pastors."
