About Us

Hi, my name is Todd LaVine and I am the founder of "Agape Premarital Counseling" a non-denominational, Biblically based premarital counseling service.

Thank you so much for looking into what we offer for premarital counseling. It is my hope and prayer that I will be blessed with the opportunity to help you create a marriage that you would wish for anyone,  a marriage that will stand the test of time, and a marriage that will truly be, till death do you part!

Contact me through this website so we can schedule a brief and informal interview. It will be a great time for us to get to know each other and to determine if pre-marital counseling together would be a good fit.

For more information or specific questions send a request from our “Contact Us” Page.

To schedule an interview, please take the time to fill out you and your fiance's profile on our "Profile Page." There is No Cost or Obligation for this interview.

For over 30 years I have been married to my amazing wife Jodi. Over those 30+ years we have certainly had our ups and downs, but through it all, our faith and trust in Jesus Christ has allowed us to have a marriage we would wish for anyone.

Jodi and I have been counseling couples for better than 20 years and during that time it became obvious that God was calling us into this area of ministry. We never really sought out the couples, God always seemed to place them in our lives.

In October of 2003 I was hired as the Executive Pastor at the church our family was attending and one of my job responsibilities was to do premarital counseling and wedding ceremony's.

It quickly became a passion for me to work with these couples before they were married. You see, the only counseling experience I had prior to that was with marriages that for the most part were in crisis.

To work with couples that were beginning brand new lives together was exciting and exhilarating to me. To pour my life experiences and what the Word of God had taught me after many years of marriage really wound my clock.

So after five years of premarital counseling many couples, I had the privilege of doing the premarital counseling for my wife's cousin long distance. Over the next several months I worked with David and Brittany over the phone and found that this experience worked quite well for them.

That's how "Agape Premarital Counseling" was born! I saw an opportunity to work with couples from all over the world and to teach them the benefit of my 30+ years of real life experience and the truth of God's Word.
