Marriage is the foundation of the family. When the marriage relationship is hurting, the family is hurting. Couples seek marriage counseling and are often given the advice to divorce, when the reality is, divorce is not the answer. Covenant provides the foundation for romance, love, and all the things that those with a hurting marriage are seeking.

If you are thinking of getting a divorce, or if you just know your marriage is in trouble, find the leader closest to you by visiting our " contacts " page. Then, you and your spouse can join our marriage enhancement course and see your marriage revived.

 

Ministry Overview

Marriage Ministries International was founded in 1983 by Mike and Marilyn Phillipps . Currently there are over 20,000 2=1 (MMI) leaders leading Married for Life groups in their homes around the world.

We are a non-profit organization, ministering to marriages around the world in 77 countries and 22 languages. Our basic class, Married for Life, is a thirteen week course for couples that is conducted in small groups in homes. Each week couples learn a scriptural principle that, when applied, affects profound changes in their relationship. A workbook complete with weekly lessons and homework is provided.

2=1 (MMI) was first introduced in South Africa for the first time in May 1988. Leaders were trained and the first groups were started in Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Pretoria and Johannesburg.

During September 1996 Jan and Alet Strydom were appointed as National Directors for 2=1 (MMI) South Africa with Dave and Maxine Broom as Africa Directors.

December 2010 Mario and Mariene Denton followed up Jan and Alet Strydom in South Africa.

Our Mission is to help couples establish their homes as powerful lighthouses in their neighbourhoods, reaching out to those around in the storms of life. The ministry works with the local church to heal and strengthen marriages. It is our firm belief that every couple has an assignment from the Lord and it is our desire to help build up and equip them as a one-flesh team. We believe when the homes are strong, the churches are strong. The scriptural principles shared weekly teach couples how to walk in the fullness of their one-flesh relationship.
