We   are committed to help families, church leaders and members at large, to build families for God’s kingdom; and to strengthen better interpersonal relationships in their families. This will be achieved through providing tools and resources within its disposal. Families are therefore invited to minister to other families who need the saving grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
