Doug and BJ Jensen's Bio:

          Since 1989, Doug and BJ Jensen have been lay ministers with a passion for working with couples.  After walking through the fiery furnaces of debilitating circumstances and undesirable dynamics in their own marriage, they made the decision to change.  Diligently researching behaviors that help couples grow closer together instead of separating emotionally or physically, they implemented their findings and their marriage rebounded and thrived.   

In 1989 they wrote the workbook “CREATE  L?OVING  RELATIONSHIPS” about their research and started traveling to churches nationwide teaching and facilitating workshops and retreats using this information.  Their positive role modeling is an inspiration for couples to create their own God honoring marriages.

Some of the marriage issues the Jensens have overcome with the help of God are life threatening major surgeries, barrenness, death of a son, infidelity, betrayal, mid-life crisis, chronic illness, addictions, co-dependency, and emotional separation.

            Doug has taught Men’s, Co-Ed, and Couples’ Bible Studies since 1980.  He is a Real Estate Appraiser, Broker and Attorney and President/CEO of Jensen Appraisal.  Doug is a past president of the Appraisal Institute in San Diego County.

            BJ is the Director of LOVE IN MOTION Signing Choir and  the Director/Writer in residence of the INTERACTORS Drama Troupe.  She is a professional speaker with “YOU CAN!  Women’s Ministries.  BJ is affiliated with C.L.A.S.S (Christian Leaders, Authors and Speakers) and N.E.W.I.M. (Network of Evangelical Women In Ministry).  

            Both Jensens are members of the San Diego Christian Writers Guild and are award winning Toastmasters speakers.   They have authored a total of fifteen books and produced five videos.  Their latest book, “FAMOUS LOVERS in the BIBLE -- And Marriage-Building Secrets We Learn from Their Relationships” was released January 1, 2004 (Published by New Hope Publishers and distributed by Broadman and Holman).

            The Jensens are a dynamic duo who empower, encourage, and equip couples to build stronger God-centered marriages.   With their contagious joy, energy, enthusiasm, humor, and unique talents, the Jensens inspire others by sharing the gospel through their gifts of creative communication at retreats, “date nights” and other programs.

            Doug and BJ are parents of one married son and one deceased son.  They are the proud grandparents of three wonderful granddaughters.
