Pastor Kingsley & Mildred Okonkwo
“Valentine’s season is that time in every year when young people make a lot of wrong decisions in relationships and I want to teach them God’s truth about relationships.” – These were Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo’s words, and the desire that marked the birth of Love Dating and Marriage formerly known as Love Dating and Sex on the 14th of February, 1996.
Although the church at the time was reluctant about embracing subjects that touched on sex and sex related issues, Pastor Kingsley was persuaded that until God’s truth about sex and relationships is taught, the culture and lifestyle of the people will be shaped by the wrong information.
Love Dating and Sex ran successfully for 9 years until it was rebranded to Love Dating and Marriage whose first edition which held in Nov, 2005 witnessed a significant leap in attendance from the former LDS’ 142 people to about 1,000 people.
Love, Dating and Marriage Ministries has a mandate to teach and equip single and married people with godly principles on relationships through organized seminars and conferences.
Pastor Kingsley and Pastor Mildred Okonkwo build their principles in relationships and marriage on the word of God and are determined to bless all the families on the earth through LDM.
LDM airs on Silverbird TV every Sunday at 1:30 pm and our relationship seminars hold every quarter at our Island and Mainland Centers.
