    "Mobilize leaders to share the gospel practically by holistically assisting communities in need."

Welcome to Faith that Works

Faith that Works began for the purpose of mobilizing Christians to life-changing work while offering practical help to those in need, earning the right to share the love of Christ in a broken world. Between 2009-2015 we mobilized over 250 volunteers, which helped us to develop community-based outreaches in key neighborhoods both in St. Louis, MO, and abroad. These outreaches served as off-ramps to mission and included feeding the hungry in St. Louis, caring for elderly and homeless individuals, and working against human trafficking. Our current focuses are our Hispanic Outreach in Chesterfield, MO, and our Somali Outreach in the Horn of Africa. Over the past 6 years we have evolved, yet the heart of this mission remains.

In 2015 we adopt a new mission statement to better reflect the changes at Faith that Works and our greater focus on leadership development. We will mobilize community members to lead mission efforts in order to further our work of providing life-changing experiences for volunteers, thereby inspiring them to greater service.

Our growth and development is reflected in our new mission statement:

“Mobilizing leaders to share the gospel practically by holistically assisting communities in need”

As we focus on our leaders, we look forward to seeing our gospel efforts multiplied.

Our success would not be possible without the collaboration of key pastors, churches, individuals, and organizations that assist us with vast and needed resources. We enjoy unique partnerships, a WIN/WIN, in which we believe we offer a powerful opportunity for Christians to answer the great commission, while the generosity of these partners enables us to develop needed resources to assist communities in St. Louis and abroad.
