August 2nd 1992, Dave married his high school sweetheart. He and his wife will tell you that they are in the process of 'living happily ever after.' Pastor Dave and Lucresia will be quick to tell you, however, that although the journey has not always been easy, it has been fun and rewarding! 

Dave has been a minister for more than half his married life, which is not bad considering Lucresia never wanted to be a pastor’s wife! Pastor Dave and Lucresia feel a special calling to minister to young couples getting married. They also have a burden for those who are already married and may be experiencing challenges and difficulties. That's why they started Cherish the Promise. Through individual coaching and classes, Dave and Lucresia offer tools that will help make marriages thrive and not simply survive!

We had the pleasure of doing premarital counseling with Pastor Dave Tucker and his wife, Lucresia. We have never met such an amazing, kind hearted, and supportive couple. They truly care and are passionate about helping couples get through the tough times associated with planning a wedding, and just the struggles/challenges in life itself! They offer such an amazing program and offer such great advice. They are truly incredible people who are so insightful and wise. We have learned so much from them as a couple and will continue to keep in touch with them due to their long lasting impact they had on our life. We can't wait for Pastor Dave to marry us! We couldn't imagine a better person to do so! We love you Pastor Dave and Lucresia! We highly recommend his pre-marital program!

Our experience with Cherish the Promise pre-marriage coaching was more than we could have ever asked for! Each session was very personalized to our needs, and the content we discussed came from a wide variety of research-based sources and leading experts in the field. We were so pleased with the positive and accepting nature that Dave and Lucresia brought to our home during each of our sessions. It was wonderful to have both of their perspectives, and they made us feel very comfortable by opening up about their own experiences and challenges. Dave and Lucresia both took so much time to really get to know us and provided such a wealth of information and support in preparing us for our marriage. Most importantly, they made it fun! Dave was always prompt, reliable, and very easy to get ahold of, which made things easy on our end during this very busy time. The program was very affordable and worth every penny. We are SO glad that we made the decision to participate in this program and would HIGHLY recommend it to any newly engaged couple!”

We had the privilege of getting to know Dave and his wife through their marriage course. Not only did we learn from them and their experiences as a married couple, but we laughed and talked with them like old friends... We really felt like he believed in our marriage...

We really enjoyed the premarital coaching. It really gave my husband and I a chance to get to know Pastor Dave better, and we really enjoyed working with both him and his wife during our counseling sessions. It was great to get both a husband's and wife's perspective on marriage!
