Apostle Dr Eunor Guti has implored married couples and the younger generation to uphold the values enshrined in the marriage institution, saying a strong nation can only be built on the foundation of a strong family unit.
Speaking on the sidelines of a leadership forum organised by the Gracious Women and Husbands Agape Fellowship International, Apostle Guti, who is the president of the association, said the church should seekÂ to promote marriages and reverse the tide of divorce.
â€œThe church should thrive to promote and strengthen family relationships and fight the disappearance of community values. The role of the church is also to promote unity and to capacitate individuals and communities to enable the institution to be a key player in nation building,â€ she said.
The forum was attended by interdenominational leaders from all the provinces and Dr Guti emphasised that christian values promote a foundation of arbitration among families, adding thatÂ the church must also play its role in denouncing violence so that people can begin to work together in peace and harmony for the development of the nation.
The Gracious Women and Husbands Agape Fellowship International is an inter-denominational organisation that was founded by Apostle Professor Ezekiel Guti and his wife, Apostle Dr Eunor Guti and is dedicated to marriage and family ministry.
Leaders who are affiliated to the association conduct counselling sessions to bring about reconciliation and restoration in marriages.
