Marriages Ministry

 

From the very beginning, the Mamlaka Hill Chapel leadership desire and prayer has been to have a ‘Family church’. A community of faith comprising families that are growing in their love for our God Almighty and for one another.

Our Vision, as a ministry is Saving and Strengthening Marriages by promoting healthy, life-long, God -centered marriages. Subsequently, we simply state our Mission as;-

  • Preventing bad marriages.
  • Strengthening good marriages.
  • Saving troubled marriages.
  • Reconciling broken marriages.

We strive to accomplish the above by doing the following:

  • Teaching married couples what Scriptures teach concerning marriage;
  • Evangelizing couples to help them put Christ at the center of their marriage.
  • Establishing a foundation through Marriage Preparation, and then defining a “road map” for marriage maintenance.
  • Providing an ongoing assessment of the needs of marriages at MHC
  • Encouraging couples to discover their giftings and actively use them to edify the MHC family and community
  • Establishing and implementing a support system that deters marriage breakdown.
  • Connecting couples for meaningful relationships, fellowship and accountability

Within the Larger Marriage and Family Ministry, we have the following program:

  1. Pre-Marital Counseling Program – PMCC
  2. Marriage 101
  3. Marriage Mentoring Program
  4. Married Couples Game Nights
  5. Annual Couples Retreat
  6. Marriage Conference
  7. Bi-monthly Couples Fun Events

Pre - Marital Counseling Class


Hey, thank you for checking out our Pre Marital Counselling Class (PMCC) program here at Mamlaka Hill Chapel. Let me guess, you are here because you are dating? Great! Are you in a relationship and contemplating marriage? Are you in your early years of Marriage and you did not have an opportunity to go through Biblical pre-marital counselling? You are welcome!

PMCC is one of the avenues under our larger Marriage and Family Ministry that is particularly designed for both the pre-engaged and engaged couples who are seriously contemplating marriage. Throughout the 12 –week program, all learning is geared toward helping couples CONSIDER and PREPARE for life-long partnership in marriage.

In this Ministry we want to do our best and prepare you for the issues you will face in Marriage. Our understanding is that marriage is a process of life-long learning and we desire to eventually become your partners in this journey of Marriage.

Here at Mamlaka Hill Chapel we take it as a great honor and privilege that you have considered to join our PMCC Program. It really is a privilege and an honor to join and become part of a journey, another marriage journey that our God has started between you and your Fiancé/ Fiancée.

Our Commitment is to seek God’s mind together with you on all matters pertaining a God honoring marriage. Our interactive class sessions helps to prepare couples for challenges involved with such matters as, Unspoken expectations, Background & Baggage, Communications, Handling conflict, Parenting, Decision making, Family Finances, Spirituality, and Intimacy between couples.

Amazing Race

The Couples Amaamazing-Racezing Race Event was held on Wednesday 01st June, 2016. It was one of the activities planned for this year by the Marriage & Family Ministry. In keeping with our motto “Couples that play together stay together”, the event was open to any couple in and out of Mamlaka Hill Chapel, who were willing to deepen their relationship with God, and also seeking to renew the spark in their marriage relationships.

On the early morning of Madaraka day, a total number of 70 couples showed up for this Event. The participants were organized into 35 teams, each team consisting of 2 couples. This event aimed at deepening and enriching couples own relationships, their relationships with God, and their relationships with other couples as a community.

The Couples Amazing Race, as guided by the sermon series on Family and Marriage preached at Mamlaka Hill Chapel, creatively challenged the teams with practical lessons on marriage. Each team was required to complete different tasks in various locations within Nairobi and its environs. Some of the places included Asumbi Treatment Centre-Karen which targeted an amazing ministry opportunity, Uhuru Gardens which had numerous fun-based activities for couples/teams, and Karura Forest which was perfect for marriage enrichment activities.

We, as the Marriage & Family Ministry, were humbled to get an opportunity to share these experiences with other couples in our community. We look forward to seeing you all during the Annual Couples Retreat scheduled for November 2016. Be sure to look out for more details on our Facebook page and Mamlaka Hill Chapel website.
