About Us

Chris and Jamie Bailey are professional Christian counselors and marriage coaches who are passionate about helping couples live their best lives together. They each hold a Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. Chris and Jamie have been married for over twenty-six years and, together, raised three daughters. They run a private practice in South Carolina as well as Expedition Marriage, an online marriage ministry. Through speaking, writing, and hosting marriage retreats, they hope to share the truth of God's word, along with practical tools for Christian couples everywhere to live an abundant life through Jesus.

 

It is Chris and Jamie's desire for your marriage to be able to reflect the love, grace, forgiveness, and vitality that it was made to have.  They have made it their life's passion to bring healing and sustaining joy back into hurting and hopeless marriages. 

Having been married for over 26 years, they most certainly understand trials, hardships and hard work. They know what it's like to overcome painful histories, to have knock down, drag out fights, and to feel unheard and misunderstood. Chris and Jamie also know the isolated feeling of disconnection and the longing to be unconditionally loved.

 

By the grace of God, along with their willingness to follow Him, they have known the healing, the abundant joy, the deep connection, unconditional love, and everything else that marriage is meant to be. More than anything, they want you to know that too!
