Ministries of Faith in Action

The goal of New Faith Communities is to establish safe spaces where un-churched or de-churched individuals can examine their faith, discover what it means to follow Jesus, and then engage in discipleship activities with new acquaintances. Every member of these communities is dedicated to sharing God’s love with their neighbors, congregating in shopping centers, cafes, storefronts, bars, residences, fellowship halls, and restaurants.
