The Marriage Course

The Marriage Ministry in Moldova  was started in 2008 by National Presbyterian Church (Washington, DC) in response to Moldovan requests for help in strengthening  marriages.

Following  the guidance of Alpha’s headquarters in London, England, the  ministry was begun  using the  infrastructure of a single denomination in Moldova—in this case Baptists—but the course is open to people of any denomination, as well as non-Christians.

From 2008-2017, approximately 600 couples have completed the course. Testimonies from the experience have been uniformly positive, such as “Thank you very much for The Marriage Course! This is a big blessing for our church” and “Thank you for this practical training. For my family, this is a reminder and a wonderful opportunity to examine our own relationships.”

“Thank you for this practical training. For my family, this is a reminder and a wonderful opportunity to examine our own relationships.”
