Schedule an eLifeMates event with the Congos in your area!


Keeping the wow in your vow.
Dave & Jan Congo

If God has laid a passion on your heart to impact marriages in your church and community, then Dave and Jan Congo are a couple you need to get to know. They are the co-founders of LifeMates “Date Nite” at Saddleback Church, Lake Forest, CA.

They want to help you experience the miracles in your church that they have experienced at Saddleback over the last nine years.

At Saddleback alone 30,000 couples have benefited from a Date Nite for engaged and married couples—a celebrative event that challenges couples to grow closer to the Lord and to each other.

The Congos are committed to enable the local church to succeed in marriage ministry. Because of that they created a LifeMates Date Nite Kit for churches. It is like having an event planner in a box. The Date Nite Kit gives you direction for a year’s worth of quarterly Date Nites in your setting. You can order a “Date Nite” Kit on the eLifeMates website or on the response card in your packet.

In addition, the Congos have an exciting new event that is in the final stages of development: an e-LifeMates “Date Nite” Conference. The Congos will be bringing the e-LifeMates “Date Nite” Conference to regions in the United States and Canada. This new event will put your church at the forefront of those impacting the marriages in your community, and will serve as a training event for churches wanting to implement a “Date Nite” in their setting. For more information about bringing the e-LifeMates “Date Nite” Conference to your area, please fill out the request form on our calendar page.
