An American Mission

Connect One

At InFaith, we delight in living out our faith in rural and urban communities across the United States by meeting needs, building relationships, and introducing people to Jesus, who inspires us to do what we do. None of us can save the world alone, but by using our unique skills and talents to serve God in a variety of ministries. We believe that connection brings life change. The power of people clasping hands in a larger whole to work in unity as God calls them means lives change. Watch these videos to meet some people whose lives are different – better – because people like you have supported our work. Consider making a gift so that we can bring the love of Jesus to even more people across the United States. If you are a federal employee and wish to donate to InFaith, please use our CFC number (#45107) on your pledge.

Danny Domingo, who has an InFaith ministry to refugees in Dallas, Texas, has been meeting with Hata*, a Bhutanese refugee. Hata was considered an outcast in his culture because of his alcoholism. A volunteer with InFaith’s refugee ministry helped Hata fill out some forms at the DMV. Through that relationship, Hata heard about Jesus and became a believer. He now prays every day and meets with Danny to learn more about the Bible. His family and friends have already noted a difference in him.

InFaith’s ministry to law-enforcement officers in Texas, led by Chuck and Lisa Lerner, stepped in to help. They gave the officer’s family funds to pay his bills. “We’re there before, during, and after any crisis,” Lisa says. She and Chuck, a police officer of more than twenty years, know firsthand the challenges people in law enforcement face in their high-stress careers.
