James and Deborah Coleman were married February 14, 1981. They are not shy when sharing how they have, and now continue to overcome some of the same challenges that couples face today. Both James and Deborah have overcome catastrophic illnesses that threatened their very lives. But, God has a plan for their lives. After visualizing this ministry for several years, and believing that the vision was God inspired, working as a team, the Colemans put faith into action and “When Two Hearts Beat as One” was birthed in their Rialto, California home.
On Saturday, February 15, 2014, James and Deborah invited married and engaged couples to the first mini day retreat. They envisioned an intimate and relaxed atmosphere in which couples rekindle love and romance; socialize, and connect with other couples committed to a lifetime journey of togetherness, with God and each other. The most important message of this ministry is: Biblical wisdom, commitment, practical strategies for better communication, and intimacy is “the key” to strong and lasting marriages.
The second retreat was hosted in July and then a third in 2015 and continues today. In September of 2015, through Maranatha Heavenly Ways Ministries, God opened the door for the first, “When Two Hearts Beat as One Work Shop” as part of the “Soncation Retreat” at the Embassy Suites La Quinta, California. James and Deborah will continue to share with others that God will bless those who put forth the effort to live and love His way.
