VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA promotes positive reading and entertainment to energize fervent faith & vibrant virtue in children and families.
The VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA Ministry is built on four essential pillars. This foundation is the infrastructure of powerful personal and cultural renewal.
The Moral Compass of VIRTUE
Ministry Pillar #1: The foundation of the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA ministry is a modern moral compass of 30 simple and reliable Everyday Virtues. These are the lexicon, the guidance system, through which we assess the positive content of movies, books, videos, and more. To a greater degree, these terms describe the positive attitudes and behaviors in which families can grow and experience on the journey to a life that is truly good.
Essential Spiritual Safety
Ministry Pillar #2: To provide a prescreened list of quality reading and media title recommendations. When so much media and entertainment is either spiritually empty or morally toxic, VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA will provide families a trustworthy mechanism to protect the emotional and spiritual health of children and teens. A proprietary filtering rubric based on God's TOP 10 List (The Ten Commandments) will be the standard for an exclusive, ever-growing, and easy-to-search list of recommended titles to read and watch.
DeLIGHT Overcomes Darkness
Ministry Pillar #3: VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA works to overcome evil with good. We celebrate and advocate for authors and artists who portray both the struggles and the JOYS of virtue in their work. We don't bash, ban, or boycott the bad stuff. We simply shine the light on the work that sparkles with goodness, and we work diligently to lead children, teens, and grown-ups to it...through an online user experience that is as simple and enjoyable as a wink and a smile.
GOOD Clean Family Fun
Ministry Pillar #4: We are convinced that we can unleash the positive power of entertainment when families have simple and upbeat ways to avoid content that is spiritually destructive. Offering easy ways to limit children's access and exposure to the problematic material is a huge step. We want each parent, grandparent, and teacher who uses the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA platform to picture themselves holding a garden hose spraying refreshing, clean content, dousing their giggling kids, with confidence that truly, "It's ALL good!"
Meet the Architect:
The VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA rating system is a creative and practical application of the life work of mental health specialist, Dr. Richard Johnson, PhD. His Spiritual Strengths Model of human personality is the philosophical inspiration behind the 30 Everyday Virtues. Dr. Johnson resides in Saint Louis, Missouri, but he is nationally recognized for his pioneering work in Healing and Medical Behavioral Sciences. His work magnificently integrates centuries of Christian thought on virtue with modern research on human behavior.

Dedicated to positive solutions.
It's one thing to have a good idea, but how it is accomplished makes all the difference. Virtue, at its core, is WHY and HOW we do things in a deeply positive way. The well-researched business plan guiding the development of the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA ministry is structured with industry best practices for financial self-sustainability. Take a look at HOW we will make the virtue work in the lives of countless families across the nation and ultimately around the world.
