About Marriage and Family For Christ
Marriage & Family For Christ (MFFC) is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian faith based organisation. In a society where brokenness in marriages and families is commonplace, MFFC’s ministry is in renewal of marriage and family to bring happiness back in families.
In 1990, the chairman of Chinese Family For Christ (CFFC), Dr Peter Chiu and his wife, Josephine Chiu, came from the US to Sydney to initiate the ministry in renewal of marriage and family. Through them, God brought renewal into the marriage and family of many Christians.
MFFC grew out of the existence as a Sydney-based coordination group for CFFC. In 1998, MFFC became a branch of CFFC in Australia, working closely with CFFC since. On 23rd October of the same year, MFFC was approved by government to become a registered marriage counselling organisation. As a result, MFFC is exempt from tax, and any donation of more than two dollars to MFFC is tax deductable.
May God lead and help MFFC to accomplish the mission of strengthening relationships in marriage and family.
Vision and Mission

To enrich the marriage relationship of couples through their participation in the enrichment retreat and the follow-up fellowship in order to bring about a revival of their spiritual life leading to a holistic Christian character development.
Core value, Philosophy and Spirit
Want nothing for oneself, but give everything to the Lord. Live out a life to impact life in ministry.
Philosophy and Spirit
- Life with life fellowship, serving together with gifts
- Life more important than gifts, relationship more important than ministry (Ephesians 2:10; Isaiah 64:8)
- Life before ministry, characters more important than exteriors.
- Submission before mission (1 Samuel 15:22)
