2013 was a wonderful year. NAME’s most important objective is training couples in churches to counsel other couples. This year 79 couples trained and became certified (a 27.8% increase). Also, this year 18 churches established a NAME center for the first time (an 11.5% increase). There are now NAME centers in 33 states and 5 other countries, including a very strong presence in Canada.
We are pleased with NAME’s progression this year, but we have a grand vision for the future. We believe a trained Biblical counseling couple benefits the local church and helps restore marriages. Right now we at NAME headquarters have enacted our NAME Expansion plan. If you believe a NAME center should be in your church or you are interested in getting certified to serve your church, call or email our office for more information! Also, if you know a couple with a heart for marriage, please share NAME with them; this may be the ministry they are called to. Thank you for all your support and prayers!
In His Service,
Emily Nilsen, Director of Communication
