Keeping it Real is the fulfillment of a God-Vision given to Dale and Jena Forehand, the founders of Stained Glass Ministries. After over 20 years of marriage ministry, Dale and Jena began to see a great need for real, authentic community between married couples. As they began to pray about what this would look like, The Holy Spirit led them to deeper understanding of the online world where people currently exist. Out of that research, the idea for Keeping it Real was birthed- a fully online experience with a focus on true community.


That is the goal of all of this. Through video elements, community discussion, date night ideas, and much more, Keeping it Real will help grow your marriage into the purpose and plan that God has for it. 

Weekly Schedule

Mondays | 11amCST - Video Element premieres on Youtube

Each Video Element premiere will be facilitated by a Keeping it Real Founding Community Member or member of the Stained Glass Ministries Team to encourage discourse and provide extra resources as needed.




Dale and Jena Forehand, the founders of Stained Glass Ministries. Dale and Jena are foodies who seek to visit every “hole in the wall” in the US as they travel. Though they can eat their weight in chips and salsa, Dale likes all things peanut butter and Jena is wired to locate every Dairy Queen in proximity, because it is always a perfect time for a Blizzard. With a love for the outdoors, they are always up for an adventure. It is their calling and passion to see marriages and individuals walking with God and fulfilling their unique purposes. While there is no greater experience than traveling on the weekends and seeing lives changed, their ideal date would be snuggled in their media room with popcorn, watching Alabama Football and HGTV’s “Fixer Upper”.
