ABOUT US

Faith & Action was founded in 1996 to meet a need in biblical, cross-cultural, practical studies for training pastors. We approach every topic by finding the big principles, then explaining, illustrating, and applying those principles to meet the needs of Christians who desire to live out Christ's pattern for life in today's world. Join us as we explore the precious, biblical, foundational principles to guide our lives. Whether you are a pastor who is preaching through books of the Bible, someone who leads a small group, or a student of the Bible who wants to dig into the rich studies these pastors and educators have to offer, Faith & Action resources can bless you.

OUR MISSIONS STATEMENT

Faith & Action Team provides a Bible-based, ministry curriculum,
