Who is F.A.M.A.?
The Faith Action Ministry Alliance, Inc. is a living network of Christ centered organizations that is working to innovate community development methodologies. Our strategy involves discovering the interests or felt needs within a neighborhood thatmay facilitate bridges of relationship between neighbors and interested businesses, professionals, churches and volunteers within and around the community. The
F.A.M.A. is the backbone entity for the 20 member organizations that comprises it. This strategic alliance of Christian for-profit and not-for-profit organizations allows for its members to provide services relevant to their distinct skill sets. The services are strategically organized and streamlined for the benefit of the community. The F.A.M.A meets once a month to share information, discuss and measure current community activities and to determine future actions. Although the F.A.M.A. is currently comprised of twenty member organizations, its fate is not tied to these particular organizations. In fact, it is one of the goals of the F.A.M.A. to broaden its membership base to increase its in-reach into communities.
The Faith Action Ministry Alliance, Inc. is a living network of 20 distinct member organizations. The organizations are both not-for-profit and for-profit. The owners or heads of each of these organizations meet monthly to share relevant community information, review and measure our current activity and plan for future activity. Each of these owners or heads of organizations are successful in their own right and are very passionate about our collective mission. The majority of these leaders are strongly connected to their community and have many years of active engagement in community work. All of our engagement ideas are filtered through this mature group of community leaders. Our president Alfred Johnson is the founder of the F.A.M.A. Mr. Johnson has been entrenched in community work as a pastor for nearly two decades. Mr. Johnson comes from a serving family. His older brother, Johnnie is a brigadier general in the U.S. Army and his younger brother Calvin is a captain in the Tampa Police Department. Mr. Johnson’s experience and research into the best methods for serving low income communities is what laid the conceptual foundation for the F.A.M.A.
