Forward Through Faith connects and equips believers from all walks of life to illuminate the path to receiving and giving God’s grace. We inspire positive change in the lives of hurting people by preparing their hearts and minds to see beyond the pain of loss.
Forward Through Faith
Forward Through Faith is the active expression of what we believe. At the core of this ministry is a story of redemption. There is hope and joy in this life even after we suffer loss, or anything that causes us to change our path unexpectedly. The best way to live with change, especially when it’s forced upon us by circumstance, is not to ask “Why?”, but rather, “What’s next?“! Trust the path before you, accept the inevitability of loss and change, and pursue a faith that teaches you to live more pure, simple and loving lives. Forward Through Faith is a way of life, and Michael and Gina hope to provide a source of encouragement, guidance, and community along the way.
