Faith into Action Ministries is modeled after the Penn-Del “Invasion Ministries.” We helped to organize “Harrisburg Invasion” through First Assembly of God in Harrisburg. Started in the summer of 2003, we took over the effort in 2006, and saw it through completion in 2011. During that time, we learned valuable lessons of what worked and what didn’t. Our committee would meet once a month for a year to plan “Harrisburg Invasion.” We saw a lot of success, but we also had a few failures as well.

That’s why we created Faith into Action Ministries. We want to help churches organize outreach efforts all across the country. We believe we can be “missionaries” to folks who live in our backyard. Whether you are rich or poor, Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with you.

Through outreach, churches are able to plant a seed. Just like Jesus taught in the Parable of the Sower, found in Mark 4: 15-20, “Some people are like seed along the path, where the word is sown. As soon as they hear it, Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in them. Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy. But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away. Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful. Others, like seed sown on good soil, hear the word, accept it, and produce a crop---thirty, sixty or even a hundred times what was sown.”

If one person comes to know Christ during an outreach, the event was successful. It is not our job to “save” someone. Only God can change a person’s heart.
