About Us

The Mission


To mobilize churches communities to care for vulnerable children.


Who We Are

Live The Promise, led by Promise686, depends on a coalition of churches working together. Promise686 mobilizes and serves churches and families to meet the needs of orphans and foster children. Specifically, Promise686 is a ministry that assists families and churches who have a heart for caring for orphans and foster children, by providing financial assistance, community support, and education. Promise686 believes the best way to care for these children is through the family. In short, if “God sets the lonely into families” (Psalm 68:6), then so will we. We accomplish this in the foster care realm through our ongoing campaign – Live The Promise.

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 an orphan and foster care ministry. 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.
