Dave and Jane Rossiter Talk Marriage!

Dave and Jane Rossiter

We have been married for over 30 years and work for FamilyLife. This nonprofit organization changes the way relationships, marriages and families interact with the world by providing biblical help and hope. We joined FamilyLife as volunteers on the Cleveland/Akron Weekend to Remember team in 1996. We took the role of Weekend to Remember Directors (WTRDs) in 2009 after David retired from ALCOA after 29 years with them . We led the Cleveland/Akron team for two years but were feeling God calling us to more. We attended a training in 2010 at FamilyLife headquarters in Little Rock for WTRDs and were told of FamilyLife’s new regional model that was unfolding. We could now be on staff at Family Life but elected to stay in Ohio as our friends, children, family were in Ohio.

Renew the ‘I do’ Foundation – “Love Never Fails”

Renew the ‘I do’ is an emerging Foundation that is inspiring marriages to THRIVE in today’s culture, guided by research, science and the Holy Spirit.

Why create a foundation to build a THRIVING marriage culture?

We realize the challenges we face.  Our media and culture promotes and normalizes immorality and broken families that result in loneliness and hurt, which often lead to many other problems. Research shows the best way to strengthen communities is by strengthening marriages.  This makes sense – families are the heart of our community and strong marriages lead to overall health and happiness for the whole family.  Renew the ‘I do’ Foundation was founded on this premise.
