Our Mission

Communio serves and equips churches and communities to build out proven, data-informed strategies that strengthen families, marriages, and faith.

Who We Are

Communio is a faith-based nonprofit organization that consults with churches to equip them with 21st century tools of predictive analytics, digital outreach, and relationship ministry best practices. Our goal is to empower churches to become community change agents that can strengthen marriages and families at scale.

Our Vision

Our vision is for a nation where every church fosters strong communities by focusing on building relationship ministries that grow and support healthy marriages and strong families.

Family is the key to combating poverty, reducing crime, improving education, and increasing life-long happiness. It is also the primary place where people first encounter faith.

Churches are the most powerful change agents for cultural transformation. They are best positioned to create the ecosystem that allows personal relationships to thrive, healthy marriages to form, and strong families to grow.

Each church has its own unique people and context. This means there is no one way to develop an effective relationship ministry. Communio’s vision is to bring best practices from around the country to serve churches in developing their own unique game plan to launch a relationship health movement.

After three years of trial and error, JP and Communio’s co-founding business leaders decided it was time to replicate the strategies that proved to be most effective. Email JP: jdegance@communio.org
