MESSAGE FROM THE
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: As
the founder and executive director of Faith Based Community Development
Corporation (FBCDC), I feel so blessed to a part of an organization that is
committed to help make a profound difference in the lives of working
As a retired banker and a Christian, I am blessed to use my gifts and
talents to help others to improve their quality of life. My faith calls me
to do this work and is part of my response to a call from God, which is
biblically based. We are called to be good stewards of what God has blessed
Many have asked what faith are you talking about?
What faith do you have to be to get help from FBCDC? My answer is
easy…it is not anyone else’s faith that I’m talking
about. I’m talking about my faith calling me to use my gifts and talents!
My faith teaches me that faith is a verb and as such we are called use it
to do something. “Faith without works is dead”. For me that
something is “helping to empower working families to increase their
economic capacity and provide them access to resources that can empower
them to realize their dream of home ownership”.
I recognize that people hear the call of God differently. He speaks to each
of us differently. He speaks to us softly and is a gentleman that does not
force himself on you. We should not waste time worrying about our
differences. We should focus on those things that we have in common. The
common values shared by most, regardless of how they hear Gods call, are
grounded in fundamental principals decency,
caring for family and service for a greater good that provides
opportunities to help make this world a better place. To the extent that we
can join together and celebrate our common values of faith, we can harness
the power of faith and allow God to use us to help bless others.
If you hear his call for you to use your gifts and talents to help make a
difference that helps to improve the quality of life of others, I would
like to extend the invitation for you to join with us. Come and partner
with us to help make a difference. Your gifts and talents can help us to do
more and make more of an impact in the lives of those that we serve.
