America and around the world, there is a great need to equip churches to proactively
build strong marriages and healthy families in their congregations. In the
current culture the nuclear family is becoming the minority, but our ministries
are not responding to this great shift. As the body of Christ, we are called
to meet people at their point of need.
Therefore, we must continue to strengthen first-time marriages, biological
parents, and intact families. At the same time, the Church must equip itself to
minister to the needs of single parents, stepfamilies, empty nesters and the growing
number of individuals cohabiting outside of marriage. Ministries like divorce
recovery, pre-marriage training, empty nesting, remarriage training, single parenting,
and stepfamilies are becoming critical components of marriage and family ministry.
The Association of Marriage and Family Ministries (AMFM) and its members are
committed to you, the local Church, the pastor and all those called to this vital
area of ministry. There has never been a greater time in history to show the love
of Christ than today in serving those marriages and families that God has given
Today, there is no greater growth tool for the church than to have strong marriages
and healthy families walking out of the church on Sunday (when ever you worship)
and walking into the culture on Monday. What a great opportunity to impact our
culture for the Kingdom.
AMFM is committed to encouraging, training and equipping the church to build
marriage and family ministries that are relevant to the needs of the culture.
No longer can we afford to minister based on what the statistics were 25 years
ago, we must meet the culture at their greatest point of need, in their relationships,
marriages, and families.
Come join the most exciting organization in ministry. Get trained, equipped
and resourced to serve your church's Marriages and Families today!
