One to One Family Christian Counseling will be celebrating 17 years of nurturing and ministering to families by hosting a Family Life Conference this week.
The conference is June 12-13 at 6:30 p.m. nightly at Greater Friendship Baptist Church, 539 George W. Engram Blvd.
The Rev. Anthony P. Church, Sr. and Willie Mae Church are the ministry’s co-founders. There is no fee for counseling and the mission is to reach out to individuals and families and provide counseling to help guide them in their relationships and lives.
“We are concerned about divorce, children being left alone, being abused. Those things that you see in the paper, we are concerned. We are dedicated to recognizing, rejuvenating and restoring relationships. We want to nurture families,” Church explained.
There is no conference fee and the theme is “Nurturing the Family: A Mission of Redemption.”
Thursday night’s presenters will be Judge Hubert L. Grimes, “How To Keep Your Child From Going To Jail;” Dr. Willie J. Kimmons, “A Strong Voice For Our Children, Parents and Teachers;” and Evangelist Karen Y. Peoples: “Surviving Physical and Emotional Abuse in the Family.”
On Friday night, Bishop Derek T. Triplett will talk about “Overcoming Strongholds On The Family;” and Dr. L. Ronald Durham will speak about “Building A Family Ministry.”
Bishop Samuel L. Butts will provide music each night.
