About Us

The Mission


To mobilize church communities to care for vulnerable children.


Who We Are

Live The Promise depends on a coalition of churches and affiliated non-profits working together. Together, we deploy an effective model–using shared resources, tools, and curriculum–to engage church communities across the United States in Child Welfare. These churches and organizations play a transformative role in the lives of at-risk children.

Beginning as a conversation with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) in Gwinnett County, GA in the fall of 2012, Live The Promise launched as a desire to discover how Promise686 might work with area churches to recruit and support 100 new foster families in 3 years. As we began to research other ministries around the country with similar goals, we came across 111project in Oklahoma City. Their simple strategy of asking every church to have at least one foster family resonated with our belief that every church should have a Family Advocacy Ministry-a FAM. In January 2013, Promise686 hosted a group of Gwinnett pastors through Unite! to discuss foster care and the role of churches. To our delight, 10 churches stepped up to join us, and Live The Promise was born.
