What is H.I.M.?
In 2003, Paul and Virginia Friesen founded Home Improvement Ministries, a non-profit organization dedicated to equipping individuals and churches to better encourage marriages and families in living out God's design for healthy relationships.
The mission of Home Improvement Ministries (H.I.M.) is to equip, encourage, and bring hope to churches, families, and marriages as they seek to establish and live out biblical designs for relationships.
