FaithQuest is determined to be a catalyst to mobilize people and their churches to put their faith into action. We are eager for all to experience the exciting journey of transformation that often occurs when we respond to the message of Jesus to “Go” (Mark 16:15 and Matthew 28:19-20) and step into a great faith-adventure trip to places where together we can love God, love others, and have a blast!
We seek to build bridges of love and connection between people and their churches within the USA and front-line missionaries and their organizations in areas of the greatest needs all over the world. We seek to mobilize USA churches under God’s banner and mandates to join Him in His work in the world, advancing the kingdom by unifying of the body of Christ in action and involvement. We do this by coming alongside people and their churches in the USA as well as key mission opportunities around the world. We have been appropriately called things like mission adventure guides, mission brokers, match makers, and mission catalysts by those we work with. (Those are the nice things we have been called anyways!)
We strongly believe in Jesus’ mandate to “Go” and that God works through relationships that are launched when we do “Go”. Short term mission trips are a key method of connecting people with people and building relationships across the waters, so we actively organize and host trips to get these relationships started! We vigorously recruit, train, and send those who answer the call, with their own “Here am I! Send me” (Isaiah 6:8). The result is often an only-God-could-have-done-this transformational change in individuals, churches, and needy villages and communities where God has led us.
We have enjoy our relationships with a great many passionate volunteers, churches, and church denominations, around the USA and the world. We also work with World Vision, Operation Mobilization, Y-Africa?/Y-Malawi?, Opportunity International, Cargo of Dreams, and many other organizations and networks around the world.

The hungry, thirsty, sick, poor, orphaned, widowed, and spiritually lost are real children and adults facing a daily battle that for most of us is unimaginable. Hundreds of millions start each day directly knowing the crushing challenges like starvation, malnutrition, water related diseases like dysentery, plus HIV/AIDS, malaria, human trafficking, and hopelessness. Every day, 800 million people go hungry, with a child dying every 5 seconds due to hunger. A child dies every 15 seconds from water-related disease, amounting to 6000 deaths, or the equivalent of 20 jumbo jets full of children crashing every day.
But there are more than 2 billion Christians in the world, with more than 400,000 churches in the USA alone! This group is compelled by faith and the admonitions of Jesus to love others and answer these crushing challenges. FaithQuest is an instigator and catalyst to mobilize people and their churches to put their faith into action for these very people who need it the most. FaithQuest builds bridges of love and connection between people and their churches in the USA and these areas of the greatest needs in the world. Championing proven models for transformation and creating partnerships and alliances people-to-people, church-to-church, denomination-to-denomination, organization-to-organization, and across the waters, around the world.
As an example FQM leads the way with the "Y-Africa?" project, starting with a focus in Malawi under the banner "Y-Malawi?" In just a few years this has connected 30 USA churches from various denominations connected to more than 500 villages in central Malawi, resulting in 6,000 World Vision child sponsorships, installation of 50+ new freshwater wells, sustainable agriculture for feeding the hungry, transformational medical care for the sick, new schools, and the message of hope for eternity that only comes from the transforming love of Jesus Christ. This program now effects over 100,000 people in the Nkhoma/Chilenje Valley, and must continue there and also expand to more of Malawi. Additionally, FaithQuest now wants to spread these concepts into the millions in Uganda, Ethiopia, Zambia, Congo (DRC), and Lesotho. This will take faith and action, and the financial fuel to advance. Financially supporting FaithQuest has a multi-fold compounding effect! Raising money for a water well is great, however what if 5 new churches can be engaged that give money for many wells and many other programs and stay involved year after year for decades? That's the compounding effect!
