MMMI works primarily with churches and has seen more than 240 couples trained from 43 different churches. In 2006 the McLains founded the Healthy Marriage Coalition in order to provide marriage education classes to churches and the general public. They have been in the ministry since 1974 and have served with Campus Crusade for Christ, two local churches and, most recently, Link Care Center in Fresno, California as Director of Pastoral Care. The McLains have three grown children and three grandsons and two granddaughters who all reside in Fresno, California. They have a daughter, Michelle, and a son, Alex, waiting for them in heaven.
