About Tying Vines

Who We Are

Tying Vines, Inc. is a Christian nonprofit organization established in 2011 to connect local heroes working to bring hope and God’s love to disadvantaged or impoverished communities. We connect our locally-based partners to the support of the global community so that together we can have a lasting impact on transforming at-risk communities with the love of Christ.  

Our Journey

Tying Vines was born out of a small Christian home-group and the shared belief that they could help churches around the world link resources to grow church leaders and provide assistance and hope to some of the world’s most vulnerable. What started with a few small projects in 2011, now has grown into a thriving, diverse network that focuses on Christ’s call to meet both the spiritual and physical needs of the world’s suffering. Today, Tying Vines not only helps churches, but facilitates humanitarian programs to address the needs of orphans and widows, provide healthcare for the sick, offer trauma counseling to those fleeing war-torn areas and support impoverished communities with education, vocational training and small-business development. Rooted in an authentic faith and a heart for the hurting, Tying Vines endeavors to provide tangible help and hope to those who need it most.
