• All Faith Leaders in Virginia:

    Fishers of Men for Jesus Ministries is honored to have partnered with The Commonwealth of Virginia's Department of Social Services (VDSS) in coordination of the Northern Virginia Strengthening Families Faith Based Consortium as the Consortium Steering Committe's Chair. VDSS recognizes engaging faith based organizations is an important component of any successful community mobilization strategy. Partnering with organizations such as Fishers of Men for Jesus Ministries represents a valuable collaboration for the Strengthening Families Initiatives efforts to engage the faith community in Northern Virginia. 

    The Northern Virginia Strengthening Families Faith Based Consortium in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Social Services is dedicated to reducing non-marital births, connecting and reconnecting fathers with their children, and encouraging the formation and development of safe, stable, intact two-parent families.

    Research has revealed compelling links between family breakdown (Fatherlessness) and the core social issues facing our communities. The breakdown of the family unit is a major contributor to poverty, declining school performance, poor health outcomes, unresolved anger, hopelessness, abuse, neglect, crime and violence.

    Through engaging local churches, ministries and faith based organizations the Northern Virginia Strengthening Families Faith Based Consortium will equip and empower teens, young adults, men and fathers with the essentials for making positive lifestyle choices.

Virginia's Governor has commissioned this initiative. He wants the Faith community to help reduce the Fatherless situation in Virginia. We, along with the Governor, believe if we can have more fathers involved in their children's life..they and society will be better off. Please pass on this information to your Faith leader. This link provides you with the ability to register and to view the agenda. http://www.fishersofmenforjesus.org/vafatherhoodinitiative.html.
