I have been married to Eric V. Dufour since 1991. We are the happy parents of Nathan (92), married to Marie; Ruben (93); Dan (94), married to Madison; Adam (97), married to Madeline; and Elie (99).
I passionately believe in healthy individuals, marriages, and families.
In 1991, my family and I began a church-planting ministry in France, as well as a ministry focused on women in distress and drug addicts.
After five years, we became the pastors of two French churches—one in Troyes and one in Chaumont.
In 2000, my husband and I took our five young sons and left the safety of our home country to answer the call of the Great Commission in a communist country in southeast Asia. While we were there, Eric fought a life-threatening cancer and subsequently struggled with depression. Serving God on the mission field and in the midst of these challenges was very difficult, but He used our painful journey to shape my ministry.
In 2008, my family moved to Colorado, USA. Eric and I began offering comprehensive marriage counseling to pastors and missionaries from all over the globe.
Our ministry, Serving Alongside Ministry (SAM), brings help to singles and married couples. Our website can be found at ericracheldufour.com.
I graduated from million-copy best-selling Shannon Ethridge’s BLAST mentoring program in 2016. I am currently working on my Doctor of Ministry in Counseling with Vision International University in Ramona, California.
