The AGUSM bi-line is “that none perish.” We take that truth and spotlight those warriors of the faith, the men, women, and children who are leading others to repentance, to sustain the calling God has placed on their lives, and yet they themselves are in need.

We at M2M are passionate for clergy and their families, that THEY would not perish. We exist so that they can thrive in life and grow in holiness while living out authentic Christianity. Pastor, Missionary, Spouse, MK, PK, TCK, we are here for you.

What People are Saying


It is my absolute privilege to recommend Shane and Marty Couch. As the pastor of a local church, I learned quickly the value of this couple. Shane and Marty provide practical help backed by all the appropriate credentials. I have been blessed repeatedly by the result of our partnership. I am grateful that ministers like this partner with pastors within our district.

Oh, how your ministry is needed… You both are ‘welcoming the kingdom’ in such a critical way with so many. Thank you for the LIFE-giving invitation that you are daily extending.


Diana Bergström
Former Sr. Chaplain/Counselor at Mercy Ships


I was serving as a missionary and got stuck on the inside, and it turned into anxiety and depression. Some of the challenges were painful ministry circumstances, personal loss, as well as layers of healing and growth I still needed. Marty helped me walk through some difficult circumstances, and I also learned a lot about myself. She gave me tools to help me walk into a healthier and happier future.


Two years ago, I truly began to fight the biggest giant in my life. So many good things have happened and M2M was an integral part. I would not be where I am today without Shane’s influence.

We want to hear from you!
