We help people understand the days we are living in and how to respond in faith.
We are living in unusual days and believe that greater national challenges
likely lie ahead. While this might be unsettling to many, our message is to
help people discern the hour and respond in faith––not fear. Indeed, in the
midst of tumultuous days, FOA is believing God for the greatest harvest
our nation has seen in generations.
Our mission is to call forth, mobilize, and equip a network of 5,000
forerunners that will impact multitudes of people who will in turn
influence our nation. We long to see the body of Christ in alignment
with God’s “now” purposes, responding in faith, and ministering in

We exist to love people by helping them understand the days in which we are living, respond in faith (not fear), and prepare for the greatest harvest our nation has seen in generations.
We desire to see five outcomes wherever we minister:
A better understanding of God’s “now” message for His church and our nation
(Jeremiah 23:22, Ezekiel 3:17, Colossians 1:28-29)
A greater heart for the lost and leading people to faith in Christ
(Matthew 9:35-37, Luke 19:10, Acts 1:8)
Unity within the local church and throughout the body of Christ
(John 17:23, I Peter 3:8-9, Colossians 3:15)
A balance of God's grace and a healthy fear of the Lord
(1 Cor. 15:9-10, Psalm 34:7-14, Proverbs 9:10)
Hearts that will cry out to God for mercy for our nation
(Psalm 130:1-8, Zephaniah 2:1-3)
