Vital Faith

Ministries of Faith in Action

The Vital Faith committee serves the purpose of making more disciples by helping build stronger congregations through the assessment of community growth rate/attendance, involvement in learning and worship, community engagement and how much congregations give to their mission. These communities serve to target our Four Areas of Focus, which include developing impactful Christian leaders, creating new places for new people, engaging in ministry with the poor, and helping fight deadly disease that affect areas of poverty.
