Kenneth W. Nair is the founder and president of Life Partners Christian Ministries, Inc., a national ministry dedicated to mentoring men in such a way that they will literally illustrate Christ in their homes and their communities, resulting in divorce-proofing Christian marriages. Married to Nancy since 1959, Ken founded Life Partners in 1978 following years of intensive Bible study and the personal application of biblical principles of Christ-likeness. What began as a small gathering with close friends has grown into a nationwide ministry that has helped thousands of people.
The author of three books, Ken also developed the materials for, and he presents, the Discovery Seminar in cities throughout North America. He wrote and refined the curriculum and teaching materials for instructors of the Christ Quest Institute, a three-year, advanced educational discipleship program underway in nine cities currently. Ken maintains a private and group discipling practice in Phoenix, Arizona and he disciples individuals nationwide by telephone and email.
During Ken’s previous ministry experience, he administered in-service, biblically based training for RAPHA therapists and psychiatric physicians at Arizona’s Camelback Hospital. Beginning in 1978, he mentored well-known author and speaker, Gary Smalley, in the area of relationships and understanding the unique differences between men and women. Prior to that, Ken was employed by the Institute in Basic Youth Conflicts ministry in Chicago from 1971-1977, where he assisted in curriculum/materials development and presentation methods, and conducted video seminars on behalf of founder Bill Gothard. From 1965-1971, Ken owned and operated a sign company in Whittier, California.
In Ken's own words...
“Having grown up in orphanages, I was not familiar with what a home, marriage or family should look like. Growing up like this I resolved to have a meaningful marriage and family. However, reality set in and after thirteen years of conducting my marriage as the Christian community had instructed me, all hopes and plans for a happy marriage began disintegrating.
"God started teaching me some valuable lessons through experiences which caused me severe emotional trauma. I began to understand how my negative character had emotionally affected my wife and children. I also made some Scriptural discoveries I'd never heard before, even though I had grown up in the church. I discovered that when these Scriptural principles were diligently applied to my life, there was an amazingly positive effect on my marriage.
"Seven years later, our married friends said they saw noticeable changes in me. Due to their insistent prompting, I began teaching them how to apply the same principles I had found in Scripture. They all soon noticed the dynamic effects on their marriages.”
AND, SO CAN YOU!
