Counselling Ministry

What We Offer

Twenty years of marriage counseling in AVMCC. The ministry was founded in 1993 by Mrs. Ebun onabanjo who was the administrator of the friendship bible fellowship ministry. The friendship bible fellowship ministry had invited the world renowned counselor Revd. Selwyn Hughes in November 1992 (CWR) to minister to women on counseling and principle of happy marriage.

The AVMCC was honored to host the speaker Revd. Selwyn and after that, the idea of establishing a counseling unit in AVMCC was born. Revd. Selwyn is the author of many Christian books including the daily devotional EVERYDAY WITH JESUS.

The counseling ministry AVMCC was formally inaugurated on the 5th December 1993, with 26 members by the venerable S.B Akinola, the then vicar. The new counselors were given two month training and the book “CHRIST IN THE HOME” produced by friendship bible fellowship was and still the study book.

Marriage counselees undertake a course of about 10 weeks although some are given crash programs when they are not able to take the whole course. Mrs. Florence olutayo (of blessed memory) was the immediate past president.
