Meet Our Speakers
Drs. Jomo and Charmaine Cousins
Dr. Jomo and Dr. Charmaine are Senior Pastors at Love First Christian Center in Riverview, FL. They have been married for 24 years and have three children. Their goal is to create a community of people who aspire to enjoy life together as a couple. With a strong foundation in Christ, they hope to inspire and motivate those who may need a little guidance on their journey.
Jomo and Charmaine have had an amazing impact on not only the church family but also the community at large. They have dedicated their time and knowledge in order to support the growth of others. They don’t claim to be perfect, but their hope is that through sharing what they’ve experienced as a couple and what they’ve learned counseling 1000’s of couples over the years is that they can offer tips and advice to help you and your partner thrive as a couple.
"At the core of what we live and teach is ‘Love, Laugh & Learn.’ These three pillars are integral to our relationship and something we try to encourage others to embrace in their relationships."
Pastors J.J. and Trina Hairston
Pastors J.J. and Trina Hairston are the bold, nurturing, and charismatic leaders of All Nations Washington DC. With Pastor J.J. Hairston and his background in Music and Entertainment and Pastor Trina with her background in religious beliefs, together they've built a culture of counseling, healing, and bringing people together. At All Nations Washington DC, the two have made it their mission to Pastor, cultivate, and heal a wounded community through love, prayer, understanding, and the teaching of the Gospel. The Hairston family is happily composed of their three children; James, Janay, and Jayelle.
J.J. and Trina offer a rare peek inside the mirage of Christian marriage perfectionism, bravely showing their scars in an effort to heal others in their book, A Miracle Marriage. During the more than two decades they’ve spent together, J..J rocketed to superstardom, with his breakout hit “You Deserve It” racking up numerous awards, including a Grammy nod for Best Gospel Performance in 2017.
While their gospel world domination is admirable, what is equally impressive is how their relationship survived betrayal, heartache and distrust. Now armed with new relational tools, the couple seeks to share their wealth of experiences with the world—including insight on when to stick out a rough patch in a marriage and when to quit.
"YOU DESERVE IT!"
J.J. Hairston and Youthful Praise (affectionately known as YP) continue to make waves in the Gospel Music Industry while garnering national and international recognition.
