Our vision is to become the worldwide leader in the delivering and training of Marriage and Family resources.
Our mission is to facilitate the coming together of both the resource providers and trainers, and the resource users in Marriage and Family Ministry.
Our purpose is to serve, encourage, equip and partner with those who are called to the vital area of Marriage and Family ministry.
In 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 us.
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.
