Homes for Christ! The Home Builders Ministry is an arm of the Jesus Women Ministries of Jesus House, DC. The ministry presents married women with the opportunity to learn wise principles with which to build their homes.
To raise virtuous married women who will build their homes for Christ through God’s Word, fervent prayer and fellowship with other Christian women.
God is the founder of the Holy institution of marriage, and there is a general attack on marriages, especially Christian marriages. Most couples do not know where to seek counsel or appropriate solutions to challenges encounter in marriages. The Home Builders Ministry helps couples especially married women to stand on, and obey the uncompromising word of God. Also, to pray and seek Godly counsel to resolve conflicts in marriages.
Married women are empowered to build up a Godly, loving Christian home and also to experience joy and peace in the race of Marriage.
Our prayers are aimed at
building a strong foundation for our homes
What We Do
Our prayers are aimed at building a strong foundation for our homes and hence we pray for the following;
- Ourselves, as wives
- Our Husbands
- Our Children
- Our in-laws and relatives
- The marriage of leaders in our local church
- Married couples in the body of Christ
- Challenging situations affecting marriages in our Nation.
Open Forums: We have Open Forums where we discuss real-life issues which affect marriages on a daily or occasional basis. We share biblical principles as relating to these topics using the word of God to encourage one another. We also gain practical knowledge from women that have being married for years and have gone through such daunting situations. We benefit from their testimonies and how standing on the word of God helped them in overcoming these challenging situations. All discussions are treated as confidential.
Symposium and Empowerment Programs: We invite guest ministers for various discussions; balancing Home and Career, Parenting etc.
Counseling: We afford our married women the opportunity to benefit from a In-House Counseling Team that married women can seek counsel. All discussions are kept confidential.
Home Economics: We organize a learning forum of how to prepare good and nutritious meals for the family.
Special Events: We organize events; refreshing time, education sessions, fun and relaxation.
