Over the past 20 years, more than a quarter of a million marriages have been strengthened and saved through NAME’s Ministries.
Certified Marriage Specialist training, free couple to couple counselling, international marriage conferences, seminars, text, audio, and visual resources, classes and workshops, television and radio appearance and our growing interactive web presence has helped with this.
NAME provides all of these resources with substantially higher success rates and at a fraction of the cost of secular alternatives.
Churches around the world are realizing that there is an answer to a serious problem—the breakdown of the family. Homes are being reunited, marriages are being restored, and children are being spared the terrible ravages of divorce.
NAME Centers are springing up all over the nation to fill this huge need created by broken homes and generational vices. Churches implementing NAME Centers train Certified Marriage Specialist couples to mentor other couples in need. This is done utilizing NAME’s unique training and certification system to prepare couples to biblically counsel other couples. These trained couples are the core of each NAME Centre.
As a result, churches are experiencing a decrease in divorce rates, there is less burden on pastors for counselling, and reconciled families are committing to serve the local church.
The focus of NAME is reaching the community. Currently, one out of two marriages end in divorce. We say that is inexcusable—we have proven that there is a solution. NAME provides effective, proven tools for reaching out to the community. We’ve created strategies of marketing, public awareness, and community involvement campaigns to help reach beyond the walls of your local church.
A community is never better than its local church and NAME is seeing churches come together to make a difference. When we educate our communities concerning the family, we are being salt and light to the world. We are not the answer. Rather, we are representatives of the Answer. Through marriage ministry, communities are seeing marriages and families saved, divorce eliminated, and people brought into greater community with one another. As a result of NAME Canada's efforts here in Canada, more children are living in loving two-parent homes, poverty is being averted, and towns and cities across Canada are being strengthened.
Communities are becoming aware that there is new hope for an old problem, and that there is a solution to their dilemma. NAME offers constructive motivational programs for getting involved in our communities to save marriages—for good.
NAME Canada is committed to our nation. Our country was founded on principles set forth in God’s Word. The deterioration of the family has weakened the moral fiber of the nation politically, economically and spiritually.
Now, our nation is seeing a gathering of leaders from every sector, denomination, race, and culture who are tired of watching our society’s moral foundation crumble before their eyes. NAME is leading the way in networking groups, organizations, and leaders to rally for righteousness in the context of biblical truths.
Myths about God are being dispelled, visions are being birthed, and opinions once set against God are changing to a realization that we can make a difference in our nation. We believe that society can be transformed for the better, and that the NAME ministry here in Canada will see God glorified in all our homes.
