The objective of the Family Life Ministry is to build strong and healthy marriages that will last a life time, and for couples to raise godly families so that a rich legacy of faith and love can be passed on from one generation to another.
Godly and healthy relationships in the family are important for life, Christian living and the welfare of society. We are committed to cultivating a family culture that is characterized by loving relationships with our parents, spouses, siblings and children. We affirm that it is primarily the responsibility of the parents to bring their children to physical, spiritual and psycho-emotional health and wholeness, although other members of the church can also help in this task. In having healthy marital relationships and godly families, we also bear a good Christian witness to the world.
In this regard, we focus on four key areas: marriage preparation, marriage enrichment, Christian parenting and marital counselling. The following are conducted annual basis and as and when the need arises:
Marriage Preparation Course
This course prepares courting and engaged couples for marriage. Over six sessions, couples will learn how to develop a strong foundation as well as with the “pillars” of marriage (communication, conflict resolution, financial prudence, sexual intimacy, etc.)
Marriage Enrichment Classes, Workshops & Retreats
These are conducted over several sessions or over the weekends/several days overseas, which give couples new and refreshing insights and the necessary tools to build strong, healthy and lasting marriages. They are more practical in nature and process-oriented
Christian Parenting Course/Seminars
These courses and seminars are designed to assist parents to raise godly children and teens. They seek to uncover the common and/or critical issues faced by parents and their children such as that of knowing the dynamics and styles of parenting, building a child’s sense of identity (self-esteem) through love and encouragement, discipline of behaviour and academic studies, etc. They will also address the many challenges of adolescence and how to engage them in a manner that is effective and fruitful as well as one that honours the Lord.
Marriage Counselling and Mentoring
Complementing the above courses and seminars is the Prepare & Enrich diagnostic tool that we use for marriage mentors and counsellors to explore the relationship strengths and growth areas of couples. This is for the purpose of helping couples deal with the unique challenges and struggles that they face and in so doing, to strengthen their marriage and make it more resilient.
Marriage counselling is also available for any couple who see the need and who are in a conflict-habituated marriage. Marriage counsellors are pastors and lay-leaders who are trained in this area. All such counselling and sessions are kept highly confidential.
