The aim of this article is to outline the Pastoral marital programmes among Redeemed Gospel Church (RGC) Embu County, Kenya, which the church utilizes to help her members to address marital challenges. In our contemporary society, many marriages; Christian and non-Christian alike, face marital challenges which often call for a pastoral intervention from the pastoral leadership, especially among Christians. The article used the structural functional theory in its theoretical framework. Qualitative approach was the determinant design that was applied. The article reveals that there are marital challenges among RGC Christian families in Embu County despite RGC having established pastoral marital programmes that are ironically meant to address the challenges therein. The article concludes that there is an urgent need to revisit and adequately reconstruct the methodology in teaching pastoral marital programmes with the sole aim of finding better ways of addressing the test.
