Who We Are

Covenant Keepers, Inc. is a Christian marriage ministry that provides hope, healing and restoration for struggling marriages. Founded in 1987, Covenant Keepers has come alongside thousands of men and women from all over the world to pray for the healing of their marriage. Working in small groups that meet in person or through video conferencing, God has restored countless marriages and deepened the faith of those standing for a miracle.

Our Humble Beginnings

When divorce ended her 27 year marriage to her pastor-evangelist husband, Marilyn Conrad, Founder and Retired Director of Covenant Keepers Inc. found no place to go to receive healing or encouragement for restoration. As she searched, the Word of God began to instruct her and give hope for the seemingly impossible situation.

Before long, God began bringing others across her path who also needed help. She opened her home and shared what the Lord had taught her. The Lord taught her the importance of forgiveness and that it is a process. He taught her that forgiveness was a choice she had to make: an act of her will, regardless of how she felt. He showed her that forgiveness meant giving up her right to hurt. As she forgave, she opened up herself to the healing power of Jesus.

Today,  Covenant Keepers, Inc. ministers to people who are hurting in their marital relationships. Unlike most marriage ministries, we often work with only one-half of the couple. Experience has proven marriages can be healed if one person will apply scriptural principles to the situation. These biblical concepts are now being used to minister hope, healing and restoration to believers around the world. Covenant Keepers, Inc. ® is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is located in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Our Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Covenant Keepers, Inc. based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to all people, and it is truth. While written by human authors, the Holy Spirit provided supernatural guidance. Because it is God inspired, it is free of error and is relevant today as when it was created.

God the Father

God is good. He has plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. He is all powerful and worthy of all our praise. He is faithful and always keeps his covenant.

God the Son

Jesus lived a perfect life so that His blood could be the complete atoning sacrifice for us. He defeated death in His resurrection to give us life. In Him, our sins are forgiven. Through Him alone, we receive the kingdom of heaven.

The Holy Spirit

He is our advocate. His presence assures us relationship with Christ. He convicts us, guides us, comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts and shapes us to be more like Jesus.

The Blood of Jesus & Salvation

No matter the sin, the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross provides the only way to salvation. His blood provides a complete atonement for our sin. Salvation is given by grace, not by anything we can do on our own. We need only to ask Jesus to be Lord of our life.


God has established marriage as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman and that all intimate sexual activity outside the marriage relationship, whether heterosexual, homosexual, or otherwise, is immoral and therefore sin.


Marriage reflects the union between Christ and the Church. Both men and women were made in the image of God and therefore have equal dignity and worth. A husband and wife have been given different roles within the marriage in order to fulfill God’s design.

Make Jesus Christ Your Lord & Savior


Our vision is to see marriages and families restored so that they may walk in the identity and destiny to which God has called them.  Once reconciled and healed, restored marriages minister to others that need God's hand in their marriage.


Our mission is to point struggling marriages to Jesus where there is hope, healing and restoration. We stand with believers that nothing is too big for God and He can soften hearts and turn spouses towards one another in unity and in love. With the Holy Spirit,  we facilitate spiritual growth, maturity and victory in the personal lives of those individuals desiring the healing of their marriages.


We value humility knowing that we are not in control but God is. We value a teachable spirit and know only He has all the answers. We value a soft heart that releases pain and resentment making room for the heart of Jesus to live in us. We value complete surrender knowing that His ways are better than our will and our plans.
