For me, understanding our "walk in faith" is a personal mission.
When my parents named me "Faith," they set me on a personal quest to understand God. My search has been a journey of forgiveness, grace and trusting in the unseen.
For twenty years, I have come to value my "friends on the journey" - the people who pointed to the redeeming work of Christ, even when I could not understand or believe.
Pastor Faith is a dedicated and passionate pastor with a deep commitment to gospel-based ministries for children and youth.

As an evangelist, she delivers engaging and relevant messages that effectively combine core biblical teachings with real-life experiences. Before answering the call to ministry, she worked in television broadcasting and video production which has become the backbone of her work in media ministry.
