Marriage Counseling (NAME)

National Association of Marriage Enhancement (NAME) Centers are springing up all over the nation to fill this huge need created by broken homes and generational vices. Churches implementing NAME Centers train couples to mentor other couples. Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle is one of these churches that has implemented a NAME Center. This is done by utilizing NAME's unique training and certification system to prepare couples to biblically counsel other couples. These couples become the core of the local NAME Center.

Our couple-to-couple counseling can help you deal with the problems that threaten to tear apart your lives. Effective counseling will reassure you that God cares and that He desires to be a central part in your marriage. You will learn principles from God's Word that will reinforce God's ideals for husbands and wives . Christian marriage counselors share and encourage these precepts. 

Our counseling is for free and offer couple to couple counseling in Spanish as well as English. Please call the number below to make an appointment. 

Name Center Directors: Dennis and Vicky Powers


Dennis and Vicky have been working with the NAME marriage ministry at Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle since 2010, first as Certified Marriage Specialists (CMS) and later as administrative assistants to the previous directors.

Over the years they have referred couples to the NAME ministry at SGT and heard God’s calling to go and serve in this ministry themselves. They believe that the foundation of all families and communities depends on the strength of marriages based on faith in Jesus Christ and the application of biblically based principles. They are passionate about God’s word and Spirit speaking life into marriages enabling broken marriages to be healed.
