David & Claudia Arp


Claudia and David Arp provide resources, and training to empower churches and communities to strengthen marriages and are the creators of the award-winning program, 10 Great Dates® .

The Arps were the “dating couple” when dating wasn’t cool. In the 90‘s they launched 10 Great Dates as a marriage enrichment program for churches and community initiatives. Dianne Sollee, Founder of, said, “The genius of 10 Great Dates is couples come for dates and go home with marriage skills. Plus, it appeals to couples in any setting.Great Dates® resources includes books, DVD-based programs, seminars, and small group studies including Great Dates Connect®, a new 4-date DVD program with Peter & Heather Larson, designed to help couples connect with other couples.

The Arps pioneered helping Boomers surmount the challenges of the empty next years and wrote the Gold Medallion Award-winning book, The Second Half of Marriage-one of over 30 books they co-authored with more than one million books in print.

The Arps have been featured in national media as empty nest experts and love leading seminars for Boomer couples who want to keep their marriage strong.
