Married Up with Dan and Danielle Macaulay, Christian marriage speakers and comedians

Welcome! We are Dan and Danielle Macaulay. We offer two main things right now: KILLER date night events for married couples, and a fun and practical marriage podcast from a Christian worldview.

Our goal is to be a breath of fresh air to married couples. God designed marriage – and His ideas about how to do it will make you, and your spouse better. With His help, we believe you’ll find you both married up!


“If you’re considering a marriage event for your church, we are confident you and your couples will love Dan and Danielle. Having shared the platform with them on numerous occasions we can attest to their incredible talent as well as their heart-felt passion for ministering to couples.”

“The Macaulays are the REAL DEAL! They are gifted marriage and family speakers and we highly recommend them.”

“This was the best event of its kind I have ever attended
in 40 years of ministry. Outstanding!”

What a spectacular evening of comedy, music, and first-class ministry! We laughed, sang, cheered, and, even cried .

The Macaulay’s have a gift of leading couples from the youngest to the oldest right where they are and pointing to significant next steps. 

I know churches are always looking for tools to help assist in marriages, so look no further! With no hesitation, host this incredible duo at your church. You’ll be a HERO! You won’t regret it.

Our goal for the night is for couples to have so much fun that they forget they’re learning something along the way! We get such a kick out of seeing countenances and body language change over the evening. Laughing and singing old love songs together builds new memories while tapping into some old ones. No one is called out that doesn’t want to be noticed, but it’s a safe and fun environment to rekindle and refresh love. The teaching moments are fun and disarmingly real and practical. The take-home sheet at the end helps things take root and produce fruit.


We want couples to laugh a lot together. Laughter disarms and heals. Laughing together is refreshing and unifying. The musical love song journey is also designed to crack hard exteriors and tap into old memories. The teaching component of the night is super practical and is designed to help couples think well of each other and find ways to bring spark back if needed as well as re-center a marriage on Jesus Christ.

Also, we really love it when a church uses a date night event like ours as a rally point to then connect couples with next steps like a newly launching small group Bible study or deeper marriage coaching opportunities etc.
A Married Up Date Night Event is typically 2 hours, but we can adjust if needed. We are totally flexible and can do these marriage date nights with or without an intermission as desired.

YES! We sure think so. We are disarmingly “un-churchy” and jump into love songs from the radio over the past 60 years early into the night. EVERYBODY knows these and can sing along. While you don’t have to be church-goer to get the jokes, Christ is front and center in the night and the Bible is referenced often. Our Heavenly Father is revealed as the sustainer and healer of marriages. Marriage was His idea and His ideas about how to do it works best!

We have had “just married” newlyweds as well as couples married longer than we’ve been alive at these date night events and they all came away raving! We promise there’s something for everyone! We’ve even had engaged couples come enjoy the night. There’s no reason they can’t!

That is up to each church. We have seen desserts beforehand, finger food at intermission and everything from donut walls to food trucks to a banquet! We have also done many date night events with no food at all or just coffee and water at intermission. The host church can make these decisions as well as whether to offer childcare or not. We’ll work with a host church to make it a great night whether there are extra calories involved or not!

If you’re looking for more than a date night only, we’ve got you! We happily speak at Marriage Conferences, Seminars and Retreat events as well. Simply reach out to us and we can chat about what you have in mind and how we can serve you!
