At Advance the Faith, we are committed to fulfilling the Great Commission found in Matthew 18:19-20, to “go and make disciples…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you”. In all we do, we want people to know that Jesus is with them always and He cares deeply for them and their purpose. We aim to meet spiritual, physical and relational needs through our programs. We invite you to join us in our efforts in SWFL or abroad.
Advance the Faith is working to meet needs in various areas such as hurricane relief, meal packaging, mentoring, and more. Through our Vault Personal Success & Financial Literacy Program offered in after-school settings, business professionals have the opportunity to share their knowledge and college students gain internship credit. Through the Advance the Faith Academy, participants are able to grow in their knowledge and relationship with God. Throughout the year we have volunteer opportunities and invite you to join us in making an impact in SWFL. In our serving efforts, we are focused on empowering individuals while keeping Christ at the core. If you are interested in serving with us, check out the events calendar under the About Us tab.

“Being a mentor has been a true joy. As disciples making disciples, the focus is always on the Lord Jesus Christ. Any relationship built on Christ is enriching to everyone involved.”

Since 2009, Advance the Faith has been serving at the Old Bight Mission Home on Cat Island. We began serving at the Elizabeth Estates and Ranfurly Home for Children in Nassau in 2017. Our trips bring the love and light of Christ to children while teaching them that they “are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for the to do”. (Eph. 2:10) While not on trips, Advance the Faith supports the homes by sending personal items, food, cleaning supplies, and providing light maintenance and projects.

Advance the Faith supports the Family of Happy Children’s Home in La Gonave, Haiti. La Gonave is considered the “forgotten Haiti” due to its minimal resources. Advance the Faith partners with Pastor Agones Jean Jacque to help provide shelter, food, education, and domestic care to children and communities in La Gonave. Every summer we hold an annual Move Against Hunger Virtual 5K to make a lasting impact in Haiti. Find out how you can make an impact in Haiti.
