Cultivating virtuous habits and happier, faith-filled families
VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA will be the answered prayer of every parent, grandparent, and educator who wants to inspire true goodness in children and teens, but struggles to find reliable entertainment sources that cultivate these virtues. Our innovative online tools will make it easy for families to choose high quality, morally rich media and soul-satisfying entertainment. We will offer a reliable virtue-based search engine called the “V-LIST,” that features virtuous books, films and music.
VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA is powered by a team of consultants and leaders who are not only passionate about the virtues and family life, but also bring their skill in theology, psychology, finance, technology, and ministry together to create a powerful, effective, and reliable tool that will change the way faithful families view entertainment.
Our well-researched business plan guiding the development of the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA ministry is structured with industry best practices for financial self-sustainability. Learn more about our development process and the VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA team:

The VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA Ministry is built on four essential pillars:
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 by which to rate entertainment. Our vision is to provide a rating system for judging media of every style, with religious and nonreligious titles integrated together in one easy-to-use platform.
A platform for finding virtuous media
Ministry Pillar #2: To provide a prescreened list of quality reading and media title recommendations. VIRTUE WORKS MEDIA will provide a simple-to-use platform that will assist families in searching for virtuous entertainment. 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. Our ministry focuses on joy. We don’t focus on bashing, banning, or boycotting - We simply shine light on the work that cultivates this good, and we work diligently to lead children, teens, and grown-ups to it.
GOOD Clean Family Fun
Ministry Pillar #4: We are convinced that we can unleash the positive power of entertainment through a platform that equips parents, grandparents, and educators with the tools they need to find virtuous media.
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’s work magnificently integrates centuries of Christian thought on virtue with modern research on human behavior which guides our review process for virtuous media.
