Purpose & Background
MINISTRY ALLIANCE™ is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-denominational, evangelical Christian ministry incorporated in Virginia with operational headquarters in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our purpose is to provide legal and operational sponsorship for qualified individuals who wish to conduct Christ-centered ministry but do not have the need, experience, time or desire to incorporate and operate a full-fledged non-profit organization. Our mission is to expand the impact and the influence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a cost-and time-effective manner as possible.
Originally incorporated as Faith in the Family, this ministry was launched on January 1, 1991 by Rev. Marty Granger. During the years 1991-1996, Marty spoke and taught on family issues, led retreats for married couples and assisted national Christian organizations in facilitating major events and activities in Washington, D.C. In 1995 Marty served Promise Keepers as the Event Manager for the Men’s Conference held at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., attended by 52,000 men.
In the spring of 1996, Faith in the Family decided to expand its outreach with the Member Ministry Program, a strategy to multiply impact by sponsoring ministry programs under the Faith in the Family organizational umbrella. In May 2011, FFI took another step in its growth and development by moving the organizational headquarters from Northern Virginia to Charlotte, North Carolina. Finally, in the spring of 2014, Faith in the Family became MINISTRY ALLIANCE™ to more accurately reflect its purpose and mission.
