NDOA is a Swahili word for marriage


Mavuno Church highly esteems marriage. We believe marriage is a precious gift from God and it is for life. Therefore, it must not be taken lightly or carelessly, but responsibly and after serious thought and preparation. The 10-week marriage preparation/enrichment experience (NDOA) is one major avenue to assist couples in their preparation.

Mavuno Church policy for marriage requires that for the church to conduct a wedding, the couple must first go through the NDOA experience and be duly cleared to be married by the church. There are some incidences where the Mavuno Church will not be at liberty to conduct a marriage.

NDOA is a ten week experience designed to enable both engaged and married couples discover and work through issues they had not considered previously and establish sound values for marriage. NDOA also gets you into a support group of people at the same season in life, working towards the same goal of building stronger families. The groups share ideas, receive support and deal with common challenges of preparing or living out a fulfilling marriage.


NDOA classes are run three times a year for a period of 10 weeks each, with classes generally commencing in January, May and September. NDOA is run under two distinct classes. The first is the ENRICH CLASS, and this is for couples who are either already married or living together. The second is the QUEST CLASS, for couples that are dating, courting or those planning to get married.

The online NDOA module costs Ksh. 7,600 per couple. This includes the cost paying for the zoom class, administrative costs, and a class retreat, and is exclusive of the cost of the course manual (available either on Amazon.com as a digital copy, or as a hard copy available for delivery).

Participants are required to pay at least 50% (Ksh.3,800) by the launch date, and clear the balance by end of June. All payments should be made via Mpesa
