FamilyLife@Grace is a ministry dedicated to restore and empower families to fulfill their God-given purpose.  God has called families to be the salt and light to the world.  Thus, every GRACE FAMILY is called to become a MISSIONAL FAMILY – to be the gospel in our communities.

We seek to fulfill this purpose in 2 ways. First, to restore to wholeness broken marriages, broken families and broken Individuals.  Second, to empower Husbands and wives to love each other deeply, Fathers to take up their spiritual leadership at home, Parents to take up their Godly responsibility to raise Godly kids and Families to be a gospel to their communities. To fulfill this purpose holistically, we are establishing 4 different components in FamilyLife@Grace – Married Life, Parenting Life, Restored Life & Life Resources.

Married Life

MARRIED LIFE seeks to strengthen marriages by building a movement to transform couples from simply being husband and wife, to become lovers for life. We have couples who are interested, not only in enriching their own marriage, but also to help nurture other couples. We call them Marriage Partners. They are trained to help strengthen and enrich marital relationships and to build a strong family.

Parenting Life

PARENTING LIFE seeks to restore parents to fulfill their God-given role by empowering them to be passionate and effective in teaching faith to their children at home. We empower parents through our missional parenting discipleship track and our parents support groups to impart Godly parenting principles and practical skills needed to accomplish their Godly responsibility.

Restored Life

RESTORED LIFE seeks to provide holistic healing to individuals and families. We have both wholeness ministry and clinical counseling to address these deep issues with families, couples and individuals. In the wholeness ministry, we use an integrated approach – “Restoring The Foundations (RTF)” to provide a complete and systematic way to be healed, delivered and set free. In clinical counseling, we have associate counselors in church and full-time counselors at our counseling centre-Reach Counseling@Marymount to provide the needed professional help.
