Our family ministry objectives are delivered via four main areas:
1 - Prayer Link
Hephzibah prayer line features strategic apostolic and prophetic praying and intercession.
2 - Marriage Preparation
The marriage preparation programme (MPP) is for couples considering engagement and marriage. We have experienced partners that are willing to help you go through proper preparation processes for a glorious future home. And that would cover topics such as God’s mandate to the husband and wife, communication, resolving conflict, finance, etc. The preparation program will run at different times yearly in a period that will be considered best suited for you and your spouse to be. Whilst based on Christian principles, MPP is very helpful for any new couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.
3 - Marriage Enrichment
The marriage enrichment arm of the ministry is designed to promote better marriages by providing opportunities for couples to learn and develop, have fun, increase intimacy, and strengthen their relationships. Marriage enrichment is delivered in two ways: Marriage Enrichment Programme (MEP). MEP sessions are set up to give any married couple the tools to further develop strong and healthy relationships. It covers most of the topics covered during the 9-week MPP but with a practical perspective of life during the marriage. MEP is relevant for couples regardless of how long they have been married. It also serves as an invaluable follow-on program for couples that have attended MPP. Marriage Enrichment Events are designed to stimulate ongoing growth and development among couples. They aim to create a network of couples interested in enriching their marriages. Events types include a full day or weekend retreats, date-nights, dance evenings, etc.
4 - Marriage Counselling
When couples go through problems in their marriages, even to the point where the threats of separation or divorce are very real, what is often required is the intervention of another party with an objective viewpoint. Marriage counselling generally helps to provide this. Many couples find success through marriage counselling, as it is a method that is used to assist couples with all sorts of issues. Consequently, marriage counselling is not strictly reserved for those on the brink of a break-up or for those where one partner has had an affair. The aim of marriage counselling will be to assist couples in their relationships, including premarital counselling prior to making a firm commitment to a partner.
You shall no longer be called deserted..; but you shall be called Hephzibah for the Lord delights in you (Isaiah 62:4)
