The Church Has Left the Building
Become a Faith in Action Church
Faith in Action (FIA) is a groundbreaking, experiential learning journey that will transform your church and impact your community. Turn your church inside out by encouraging and teaching your congregation to put feet to their faith and share God's love in a practical way.
More about Faith in Action
Faith in Action starts with a four-week series of sermons and educational activities to involve and inspire church members. The program culminates with a Faith in Action weekend when congregation members invite the community to join them in a day of service projects focusing on local, national and global needs, potentially held in place of the church’s regular worship service(s).
Designed as a church-wide program, Faith in Action can be smoothly implemented in your church using a full array of resource materials, including sermons, videos, a planning guide for leaders and pastors, small group curriculum and devotional guides, as well as dynamic communications materials for engaging your congregation and reaching your community. The FIA materials provide churches with a complete campaign of education, inspiration and mobilization for this exciting compassion ministry.
Faith in Action has been forged through an unprecedented, strategic partnership between World Vision, the world's largest Christian relief organization, Outreach, Inc.
, the nation's leading provider of church communication resources, and Zondervan
, the nation's leading Christian publisher. It is our strong belief that Faith in Action will soon be an annual program implemented at thousands of churches across the country. We invite you to be a part of this new movement.

Our Vision for the future Faith in Action Web site
In the May of 2007 we'll launch the Faith in Action Web site that will include a database of organizations that your church can partner with in serving your community, and your world. These organizations will provide valuable opportunities to help your church engage in local, national and global efforts to share the love and mercy of Christ.
The website will also highlight the work of churches that have found creative and successful ways to reach out and serve the needs of their community.
For more information about this future Web site, or to suggest potential volunteer organizations or model churches, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
