Married Couples Ministry
Ministry Coordinators: Ptr. Martiz and Rebbie Ware
Core Group (DJ,Hannah, Pastor Ruth, Pastor Eric)
We have developed a wonderful Couples' Ministry in our church. through counselling and monthly fellowship, we constanly equip couples with ways on how to enhance their relationship, and add a new dimension and excitement to it. The tolls we provide blend seamlessly into their existing marriage and impart to them new strategies of communication that will effectively become the foundation of a lasting and wonderful Christian relationship.
At our fellowship during the third Saturday of every month, we help couples take proactive steps to prevent marriages from reaching a state of distress and to revive those that are already in distress. It is our vision and goal to transform bad marriages, increase intimacy in good ones, save the future if children involved in hurting homes and bring new families into our church. We even touch delicate topics that most churches frown or shy away from, such as cultivating healthy discussions about sex, drugs, homosexuality, and teenage pregnancies. These are realities that thrive in our society today and must faced with objectivity, compassion and understanding with Christian perspective.
Futhermore, our ministry is also blessed with financial advisers/consultants who can help and guide couples in their financial concerns. Financial issues have remained the number one cause of matrimonial conflicts. The resolution of these problems is an essential ingredient to a harmonious relationship.
John 10:10 says, "I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." We thank the Lord that we can hold on to His promise to live pru married life abundantly.

Courageous Men of God
The purpose of this ministry is drawn from 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 – “be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” As we can be strong in the Lord and be loving at the same time.
The Courage Men of God prays to build a “stone wall” for ourselves, for our families and for the church to stand any storm that will come. We will battle through bended knees as we believe this is the pathway to victory.
The Lord has given us the Qs to have great Peace; This is the time to make a stand and to unite to A’s our trials, and as we overcome, then comes forth the perfection of our Faith.
“In the world’s broad field of battle, in the bivouac of life, be not like dumb, driven cattle, be a hero in the strife; Let us then be up and doing with a heart for any fate, Act in the Living present, heart within and God o’erhead, still achieving, still pursuing, learn to labor and to wait” by Longfellow
I remember our first retreat in 2005 at Pinecrest when we experienced a very special kind of bond as we opened up to each other with tears and laughter. It is so amazing to see that the Women of Hope continue to grow in the Lord and it touches my heart everytime we have fellowship and I see all the support you generously give. I know that we can only do things like this if we have God in our hearts. That is why I am so proud that we all have one faith and that faith is aimed at glorifyig and serving God. Ladies, you are the best! What you did especially during our July 2007 fellowship was amazing. The fund what we raised shows that the Lord is truly in your hearts.
Go, go, go Women of Hope! As the Lord says in Jeremiah 29:11-13, "'For I know the plans I have for you' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek Me with all your heart."
I would like to take this opportunity to thanks Pastor Ruth, Sister Haydee and Sister Ana for their cooperation and patience in helping me. I love you guys. To all the Women of Hope, Ilove you and God bless you more!
