David and Cindy Southworth
Committed to serving God, David and Cindy Southworth joined as husband and wife and partners in ministry in 1999. They began a lay ministry with FamilyLife, by facilitating small groups at their local church in Jupiter, Florida, that focused on marriages. They soon discovered their calling to help bring healing to hurting marriages, and networked with other couples who were engaged in similar ministry. They assisted FamilyLife in regional leadership summits. Because of David’s thirty years of service in the U.S. Air Force, they went on staff with Military Ministry (CRU), formerly known as Campus Crusade for Christ) in Newport News, VA from 2005-2007. Their desire to be able to more effectively help couples led them to become certified as marriage and leadership coaches through the American Association of Christian Counselors. They are also members of the International Christian Coaching Assn. Since 2007, David and Cindy have been leading marriage retreats, marriage small groups, marriage intensive weekends, and one-on-one coaching, and are the Executive Directors of Breakwater Coaching. In 2012, Cindy joined the John Maxwell training team for coaching, speaking, and training. God has given David and Cindy a passion to see men and women experience freedom and restoration in their relationships. They reside in Winter Haven, Florida, and are the parents of three grown children, and have six beautiful grandchildren.
