The Family Ministries Department
The Family Ministries Department of the Cayman Islands is designed to promote and enhance loving familial relationships among family members. It provides a wealth of services to the membership of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and the community at large. The department promotes the wholesome family living through seminars, workshops, weekend retreats and conventions.
The department functions in collaboration with the Men’s Ministry and Women Ministry Departments to put on joint programs. It offers free family therapy, group and individual counseling, along with premarital counseling to members of the church and the community.
We remain committed and inspired to build stronger loving ties among family members, church and community.
