BEYOND ORDINARY

Justin and Trisha met and fell in love at Lincoln Christian University in Lincoln, IL (Justin adamantly asked Trisha out twice a week for 6 months before she finally said yes). Justin received his BA in Christian Education and Trisha later earned her degree from Indiana University.

The Davis’s return to ministry is the result of a victorious battle for their marriage and family. After successfully planting their first church, Justin had an affair with a staff member, who was also Trisha’s best friend. What followed was a four-year journey of pain, grief and ultimately the restoration of their relationship by the grace of God. This experience left a watermark on their marriage of what it really means to experience grace, love and redemption firsthand—both individually and as a couple.

In 2009 they founded RefineUs Ministries using their story of failure, loss, and transformation to guide the Church, pastors, and church planters towards healthy marriages and families. Today, Justin and Trisha are bloggers, authors, and teachers in Nashville, TN where they reside with their three boys. Justin is currently campus and teaching pastor of Crosspoint Community Church, Bellvue Campus—recently named the 28th fastest growing church in the country.

With the rare free time that they can scrounge up, you will find Justin and Trisha going on walks, eating at PF Chang’s, or having coffee together; and sometimes all three at once. They consider the resurrection of their marriage to be a great gift and feel it a privilege to use RefineUs to help others towards that same healing.

Justin and Trisha’s first book is contracted with Tyndale House Publishers for a 2013 release.

Wow, their story gave me chills. Or rather... the restorative power of God in the lives of His broken people, gave me chills. A book I will certainly look out for. Thanks for sharing, Rita.
