Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that a man could stake his life on it a thousand times. – Martin Luther

Welcome to the website for ForwardingFaith, a fundraising campaign of the Virginia Synod!

The goal of ForwardingFaith is to endow the youth and faith formation ministries, events and activities of the Virginia Synod, ELCA.  We are 150 Lutheran congregations throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia, North Carolina and West Virginia that are affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

We believe in both living and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ joyfully and abundantly throughout our lives. Based on our faith in the Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—we are empowered to live lives of discipleship, service and mercy.
