Bob Baker, veteran marriage educator and co-founder of Marriage Foundations of Colorado, was married for 50 years to his college sweetheart, Carol, who graduated to Heaven in March of 2014. He was recently blessed with a new wife, the former Carolyn Franklin, who now works alongside him in many areas of ministry.
Called to help marriages in his early 30’s, Bob now has about 40 years of unique experience in all aspects of marriage preparation, healing, and enrichment. He approaches his ministry as a pastoral counselor and has helped hundreds of couples go from mediocrity to having a thriving marriage. After a few months of rest and reflection during his recent transition season, Bob was called to return to the front line of marriage ministry and has a renewed and targeted vision to come alongside couples and share what he has learned.
The Bakers bring a unique ability to apply Biblical principles to the “Monday morning reality of married life.” Bob says with passion: “God is in the business of faithfully healing couples from the soul wounds that they brought into marriage and then compounded after being married. All things are possible with Him.”
Co-Founder / Counselor
Parent of four grown children and blessed with the treasure of 15 grandchildren, Bob served for many years as Director of the Colorado Marriage Project for the Rocky Mountain Family Council in Denver.
He is regularly “on the road” presenting marriage enrichment workshops and retreats in various venues across the Front Range and beyond. He continues to host a weekly radio show on marriage and family topics in Denver (KPOF AM 910), and serves on the premarital preparation team at Denver United Church. He previously launched and presented a premarital class on the University of Denver campus for several years.
In 2008, the Bakers founded Marriage Foundations of Colorado, which is dedicated to “creating a safe, encouraging atmosphere for marriages to be Restored, Redirected, and Refreshed” through couple coaching, weekend workshops and retreats, premarital training, and “focus papers” on critical topics related to marriage, parenting, and emotional health.
