Our Mission: To Reach and Disciple Men, Women, and Children for God.

Father and daughters

Building Relationships

Our Vision: To work with local churches and correctional institutions to train men and women to be Godly parents by developing healthy, vibrant, God-honoring marriages. Our desire is to see men complete this learning process to become the fathers and leaders God has designed and called them to be in their families, churches, and communities.

Blue Ridge Ministries was founded in 2001 by Jim Williams and received its 501(c)(3) status in 2002. The ministry focuses on men and women and the roles they play in the family structure. We offer seminars for men, women, and couples along with parenting courses. The desire of the ministry is to see dads and moms become the parents God has called them to be.

The ministry works through local churches offering training through various seminars to strengthen the family structure. God opened the door in 2003 for us to work with incarcerated parents; teaching parenting and life skill classes. We have seen God do some awesome work in these families during the past eight years!

The ministry has a board of seven members along with two staff members who facilitate parenting seminars and life skills training.
