Marriage & Family Enrichment Ministry
This ministry is designed to instruct, direct and counsel engaged and married couples through the Word of God. We provide spiritual knowledge and comprehension as it relates to marriage God’s way. Marriage is not a game and the vows are not to be taken lightly; however, far too often we see that they are. It is incumbent upon the church to have a strong Marriage Ministry that exhibits, exemplifies and teaches the Word of God’s intent for a marriage and family to be complete.

The Tribal Ministry is here to build and strengthen the connections that members of Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church (PRMBC) share and to encourage closer fellowship and relationships between new and current members of the church. The purpose is not to create separate churches within PRMBC. There remains one church, one pastor and one congregation.
The Tribal Ministry organizes members of PRMBC into tribes based on the birth month of the head of the household. The name of each tribe is based on the Twelve Tribes or Houses of Israel, which God commanded Moses to organize in order to take a census of the congregation of Israel. The twelve tribes of Israel and the corresponding birth month for each PRMBC tribe are the following:
- Reuben (January)
- Simeon (February)
- Gad (March)
- Judah (April)
- Issachar (May)
- Zebulun (June)
- Ephraim (July)
- Manasseh (August)
- Benjamin (September)
- Dan (October)
- Asher (November)
- Naphtali (December)
