From a jungle of rain-washed pines and junipers spearing the hot blueness from the Florida sky, ran a small, tawny-haired boy. His bare toes, extending from his overalled legs, crackled towards the fallen palmettos. He leaped into your air, flinging his arms towards a flock of white doves circling higher than him.

They were impressed by the spontaneous outpouring of support for people in need, & wondered what could be achieved if Christians organized and prepared throughout the year to address disasters like this one, AND to serve ongoing local needs in our communities. And so, Faith Coalition was born. The goal is for our area community of churches, united through Christ, to be �˜one body with many members�™, in selected common missions.
