In June, 2000 Flagstaff Area Christians In Mission was the vision of a local group of pastors and church leaders, born out of much prayer. Their desire was to see the Church respond to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20) across denominational lines.
In September 2004 the group changed its name to FaithWorks to better represent the variety of member churches and our theological purpose.
