ONE LIFE. ONE YEAR. ONE MISSION.
The church in America is filled with hypocrisy and duplicity—people say one thing but do something else. Perhaps that’s because in all of our church-going, activity-hopping, schedule-packed existence, we’ve learned how to get educated, get ahead, and make a living, but we have never really learned how to live life in action. Our desire is to narrow the gap between what Christians say and what they do. Life Action Ministries is dedicated to getting beyond the surface of people’s lives to the core of what matters. We believe revival is real life. Life Action Ministries would like to invite you to join us in a one-year odyssey of authenticity—a unique opportunity to integrate your gifting with real ministry. We believe that if you invest one year in building your spiritual core, the rest of your life will have a foundation of authenticity. Join us in living the way life was meant to be lived.
The heartbeat of Life Action has always been our local church team ministry, because of their interaction and involvement with God’s people in a personal and protracted way. Not only are biblical truths preached, they are lived out in front of the body of Christ. It’s about putting our new life into action! We are burdened to challenge God’s people to quit “playing church.” This burden is more relevant now than ever before. We not only have a vision for revival, we have a passion to see God use this ministry to bring revival to His church. We all want our lives to matter; we want them to count. We want a purpose that gets us up in the morning. We don’t want to settle for what is expected of us; we want to go all out for what is best for us. Life Action Ministries offers you a call to the best life you can live. We believe that if you invest one year of your life with us, the rest of your life will have the mark of God’s call on it. During your year with Life Action, we will provide foundational biblical instruction and counseling training, career instruction in your area of service, and a certificate of completion for your résumé. Christian colleges may apply this year toward their individual ministry requirements in your program of study.

Frequently Asked Questions
One of the exciting aspects of Life Action is that we operate as a faith ministry. Our staff members and families are challenged to raise their own financial support. This is a new venture for most who join us, but one that offers the anticipation of seeing God supply needs through unexplainable answers to prayer. Now, before you begin thinking that raising enough money for an entire year of traveling is virtually impossible, let’s think about how powerful God really is. He has been faithful to supply all the needs of every team member for over forty years, and we know that He will continue to supply our needs as we seek Him. In addition to watching the Lord supply our needs, we get the opportunity of seeing others blessed through our ministry. As we raise support, we get to share openly about what God is doing in our lives and why we carry a burden for revival. God uses our testimony to glorify Him and challenge others, and we receive a blessing as God brings various people into our lives to join us in our ministry to the nation. Our Philosophy of Support Raising It is my responsibility to inform people of my needs; it is God’s responsibility to direct those people whether or not to give; it is each person’s responsibility to respond in obedience to God’s prompting. “My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
The financial requirement for the travel year is $3,500 (does not include Life Action’s health insurance). The fee that you choose will cover costs of staff training, lodging, meals, books and resource materials, ministry supplies, internship, and activities. In addition to this fee, we also recommend that each team member raise an extra monthly amount to take care of any personal needs such as snacks, medicine, gifts, cell phone, etc. Note: This information is subject to change.
