Hello, we are
Cosmo & Suzi Raines
We began Soul Anchoring Ministries because we know from experience that it isn't always easy to create, foster, and maintain a soul anchored to God in this turbulent world.
To build, encourage, and strengthen relationships through exclusive, creative, biblically-based education and resources.

WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE'VE DONE,
WHAT MATTERS TO US
(IN A NUTSHELL...)
SERVICE. On the day we got engaged, the first thing we did was go help our friend's parents pack for a move - service is a foundation of our relationship.
MINISTRY. We have done ministry to almost every age group and life stage: kids, youth, young adults, adults, singles, engaged, and married. Our calling is to see Christians walking in the fullness of who God created them to be - to be so anchored to the truth that they can go out into the world and affect change in their circles of influence.
MISSIONS. We've been on half a dozen short-term mission trips over the past 20 years. From manual labor for an orphanage in Mexico to prayer walking in non-Christian places on the other side of the world.
COUNSELING. We are not licensed counselors, but we have ministered to and advised people from all walks of life. We are certified Prepare/Enrich facilitators and are in the process of receiving our Symbis certification. Cosmo is also an ordained minister and has performed nine ceremonies to date. Before he performs a ceremony, we meet with the couple for pre-marriage counseling sessions to help them prepare for their married life together - long after the wedding day and honeymoon have ended.
