OUR HISTORY

Faith Community Church is an urban, multi-cultural church in the Park Place community of Norfolk, Virginia. Concerned about many homeless African American men who were not allowed to be housed at the Union Mission in Norfolk, Virginia, a group of believers under the leadership of Dr. James A. Handy established the Colored Union Mission circa 1932. Following the model of the Union Mission, daily counseling, Bible studies, and evening preaching ministries were organized. After segregation was judged illegal, the Union Mission integrated and the Colored Union Mission ceased operation. Because of the dynamic relationships and compassionate ministries established by those involved with the Colored Union Mission, the group decided to stay together and formed a church to continue worshiping and ministering together. They named this church Faith Tabernacle Church of Norfolk.
