F.A.I.T.H. – Fighting Against Injustice Through Harmony

“F.A.I.T.H. Moves Mountains”

(Fighting Against Injustice Through Harmony)

Mission Statement

“We are an interfaith, Congregation-based Community Organization. Our member Congregations pledge to build powerful Justice Ministries within their own congregations and to work together to address the root causes of issues of injustice in Volusia County”

F.A.I.T.H. Volusia

In 1996, several clergy and lay leaders in Volusia County began meeting to discuss the idea of forming an organization to address some of the problems they saw in their communities. The rationale was that many people joining together; speaking with one voice would be heard by those who could effect change for the advancement of Volusia County. With grants from various foundations, a coordinator was hired to organize the religious communities into a cohesive entity to work toward building power to achieve this goal. Sixteen pastors bound their congregations by a covenant. On January 24, 2000, 700 people attended this Covenant Assembly and F.A.I.T.H. was born!
