They serve as Executive Directors of One In Christ Marriage, journeying with over 1,000+ engaged and married couples on their path to heaven through the Sacrament of Matrimony. Their work is recommended by priests and doctors alike. Clinical Psychologist Dr. John Cadwallader stated, “The One in Christ does an excellent job of integrating health of the mind, body, and soul.” Msgr. Joseph Schaedel affirms, “It creatively, effectively, and pastorally addresses the most critical issues concerning marriage and family life in contemporary society.” Physician Dr. Casey Delcoco M.D. shared, “One In Christ transforms couples’ outlooks on marriage, sexuality, and family planning.” They have been featured multiple times in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis newspaper The Criterion and on the popular Faith in Action radio show on Catholic Radio Indy.

Matt and Julie Miller are both cradle Catholics that met in college and got married at the tender age of 21. In the intervening 20+ years, they’ve been in a process of continual conversion that will one day, God willing, lead to sainthood. Along the way, they’ve welcomed five children into their family, have homeschooled them (mostly), and hope in their eventual sainthood, too. Matt and Julie taught NFP for 14 years, have presented for various marriage preparation for 16 years, and have run a weekly small faith formation and sharing group from their home for the last 13 years. They credit consecrating their family to Jesus, through Mary, in 2009 as being a turning point in their spiritual lives and are Disciple Life members of the Apostolate for Family Consecration. Matt and Julie reside in Indianapolis, IN where they are parishioners at St. Luke Catholic Church.
