What are Vital Families?
Vital families are ordinary families with a growing passion to love deeply, build leaders and strengthen their communities.
Our passion is to see families live their purpose – to be the sanctuaries, leader-makers, and community builders that God created them to be.
Communities are waiting for families to love them.
What We Do
Vital Families provides what’s missing in the lives of so many families: a soul-satisfying way of life and a practical plan to give a legacy of love to a hurting world.
To do this, we connect families in small groups who walk together with a coach for a year.
Our focus is on learning three habits: how to love deeply, build leaders, and strengthen our communities. Families practice using tools and resources that support these habits.
The first year is followed by a second year opportunity to become a “catalyst family” which deepens and broadens the work accomplished in year one.
We give families a way of life that satisfies your soul.
HABIT #3strengthen YOUR COMMUNITY
Vital families believe God is actively restoring broken lives and communities every day. The Biblical story is a radical story of exchanges: freedom for captivity, praise for despair, light for darkness, and restoration for devastation (Isaiah 61). Vital families engage their community in response to being loved and led by this restoring God.
Become a vital family
We are building a list of families who might be interested in the next round of coaching and family groups in 2018. Meanwhile, we are hosting monthly workshops in the Knoxville area covering pressing topics of concern for parents. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter and read our blog.

Donate to Vital Families
We feel called to help 10 percent of the families in every county we enter to incorporate the three vital family habits into their daily lives. This represents a tipping point for social change movements. Your gift will help us impact those families.
