The Church unleashed to love our neighbors

Alongside Families mobilizes and equips the Body of Christ to stand in the gap for family preservation.

Our partner churches make this ministry possible. They are committed to loving our neighbors through our deeply relational ministry model designed to keep children safe, families intact, and parents plugged into loving community.

Alongside Families Partner Churches commit to:

Designate Alongside Families as a ministry of your church.

Identify a volunteer leader who Alongside Families will train to head up the ministry at your church.

Recruit volunteers who will serve together as a Community Circle to wrap around a family in need.

Support: Wrap around your volunteers as they serve and welcome isolated families into your community with open arms.

Is your church ready to champion family preservation?

The need is great. Our heart is to connect every family that reaches out to us into caring community.

We are actively looking for more partner churches in our two ministry locations:

  • greater Charlotte, NC area
  • greater Asheville, NC area

Alongside Families may be a great fit for your church if:

  • You want to serve vulnerable families through relational vs. transactional ministry
  • You emphasize life in community and want to invite your neighbors into that community
  • You want to serve vulnerable families: both children and parents
  • You want to be part of a ministry that is transformative for both our neighbors and for the church as we learn to practice biblical hospitality

Alongside Families provides a platform for your church to:

  • Lead your community in caring for vulnerable families
  • Walk in relationship with families who otherwise may never walk through your church doors
  • Build your own family preservation ministry within your church, receiving professional staff support as you serve
  • Unleash the families in your church to be on-mission within their own homes

Reach out to us to learn more!

We'd love to share with you how your church can get involved.

We need churches to plan and host events to help build community for the families that we serve. Example: a family night out event that our volunteers and the families we serve can come to and have activities for the kids and for the parents to enjoy and to spend time together (positive outings where isolated parents can build friendships and get a break).

Collect items needed for welcome packs for both children and parents when a hosting begins. Assemble welcome packs for us to keep in our Care Closet to have on hand when needed!
