We are very excited about the brand new NAME center at Abundant Life Fellowship in Roseville, CA! NAME has continued meeting the goals of the NAME Center Expansion Plan. Since October, we have gained 13 new NAME centers, and have 6 centers currently testing and 19 in the training process. We have also increased our Certified Marriage Specialist base by 50 couples! Praise the Lord! NAME desires that every church would have a marriage ministry, but we have recently been made aware that some smaller, less affluent churches cannot afford the certification. In response, NAME has been making more efforts to sponsor or partially sponsor churches. If you have the desire to see more NAME centers in more churches, please consider donating to NAME so that we can continue making certification affordable and give to those specific situations.
We are currently gearing up for our 19th International Marriage Conference (IMC). This year’s theme is Unbreakable Love! We are so excited for this year. It’s going to be incredible. There will be new speakers, new workshops and fresh teaching. Start assembling a group now to take advantage of our group discounts. Again this year, we will be having a simultaneous Spanish conference. New this year, we will be having our first Devoted Youth Conference, taking place Thursday and Friday night and Saturday morning for 13-18 year olds. The focus of this event is to encourage youth toward purity and intentional dating and/or courting, and to define healthy relationships. This conference will inspire teenagers to be more devoted to God and their future.
