About the Author

Gary H. Woolverton is an author, ordained minister, and ministry consultant who is passionate about designing effective ministry for churches and other ministry organizations. His almost nineteen years in ministry have included stints on the staff of several megachurches in Texas, and the oversight of a number of ministries, including those for adults, parents, couples, support groups, and missions and outreach. Prior to his call to ministry, Gary spent a number of years in the heavy construction and natural gas industries, mostly in the area of human resources development.

Aimee Woolverton is Gary’s wife and mother of their two sons. She grew up in ministry, as her father was a music minister at a number of churches throughout the country. Aimee met Gary at a church where he was on staff. Although she was working for NASA at the time, she was also heavily involved in ministry at their church. Her leadership responsibilities included ministry to children, missions and outreach, and single adults. Aimee was also a founding member of a singing trio entitled One Heart that ministered to audiences for a number of years.

During one of his assignments at a large church in Dallas, Gary led a team that developed a comprehensive marriage ministry that provided effective ministry to marriages in the church and the local community. The ministry prepared individuals seeking marriage and those who were already married. This tool evolved into a passion for something much more than only serving the local church. Marriage Ministry By Design has been written and published to provide church staff and other ministry leaders with a blueprint for designing marriage ministry for their organization and so much more.

Gary and Aimee live in north Texas with their sons, two cats, a puppy, and dozens of fish.
