Couples for Christ (CFC) which started in 1981, is presently in 160 countries and would start another branch in Sierra Leone.
Couples for Christ started when Christian Communities tried to evangelize married couples in private homes. There they were brought to a living relationship with Jesus Christ and to a renewal of the power of the Holy Spirit
The CFC became a Christian Family renewal program made available to Parishes and groups of married couples who wished to live their Christian life in an active and supportive relationship with one another Through the succeeding years, CFC has blossomed into a worldwide Ministry to become a major force for the renewal of Christian family life and also the church.
One of the trainers Ricky Vince said that such a Ministry is necessary; it is God’s plan that the family be the basic unit of society, such that the conditions of families determine the condition of society.
However, there are many forces in the world today that would ,wittingly destroy the very foundation of the family.CFC wants to rise in defense of the family which is God’s work and CFC wants to bring God’s strength light to those who are struggling to be truly Christian families in the modern world
He mentioned that couples for Christ intend to work for Catholic Christian family renewal by focusing on three specific objectives like Individual renewal, Family renewal and Church renewal.
