Working for You: Tree of Life Ministries

Tree of Life Ministries began in 2008 in Purcellville as a collaborative effort of like-minded Christian churches with a simple purpose: To reach out to the poor and needy in our community with the love of Jesus Christ. Loudoun County is consistently designated as one of the wealthiest U.S. counties and yet 3.4 percent of the population live below the poverty line.

From humble beginnings with a handful of committed volunteers, Tree of Life is now a 501(c)3 nonprofit, supported by multiple Christian churches and a small army of more than 400 volunteers, all of whom benefit from an informative Volunteer Introduction Program. During 2016, 7,000 local people were helped across the Tree of Life’s five-branch structure.

Our Vision is to “plant the Tree of Life model in new communities to the glory of God.” Our first steps towards realizing that goal was realized in October 2016 with the launch of Tree of Life in Leesburg. Tree of Life Winchester was launched in April.
