About Us

A little about ourselves:-

So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
Gen 1:27

The New Zealand branch of 2=1 (Marriage Ministries International) is led by Murray & Janet Fookes of Kawerau. 
2=1 started in New Zealand in the early 1990's and has leaders from Kaitaia to Invercargill to support and encourage as they seek to bless and minister to marriages in their areas.
Courses offered by Marriage Ministries are the 13 week Course which is made up of a maximum of 7 couples meeting together weekly and working through week by week the 12 topics outlined in the 2=1 brochure. (read about the course on the Married for Life page) There is time each week for couples to share their homework if they want to and then a time of teaching from the Lead Couple. During these groups Couples are given a manual and are discipled through each lesson with the Holy Spirit as the counsellor.


We are able to offer Pre-marital and Parenting courses in NZ.
