What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There has been a shift in our culture. God’s truth has been exchanged for a lie. The attacks on God, the Bible, and Christianity are strategically intensifying. How do we stand firm against a world that corrupts and distorts? The accurate and relevant teaching of Scripture is an anchor in the tossing storm.\n \nFocal Point Ministries is committed to exploring and proclaiming the depths of Scripture to those in desperate need of truth.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Focal Point Ministries is committed to exploring and proclaiming the depths of Scripture to those in desperate need of truth. To see people's lives changed by being reached for Christ, teaching them to be like Christ and training them to do this with others. This is done through the preaching, teaching and writing of Pastor Mike Fabarez, Senior Pastor at Compass Bible Church in Aliso Viejo, CA.

Focal Point delivers relevant and accurate Bible teaching on over 800 different outlets. These include daily radio broadcasts, a website that offers free mp3 sermon downloads, devotionals, Bible reading plans, answers to questions, and more. In addition to this, Focal Point distributes the books and workbooks written by Pastor Mike. All of these resources are managed by a small team of associates and dozens of volunteers to supply material on a daily basis.

Focal Point's highly trained staff and volunteer team efficiently utilizes the generous support of its listeners to maximize its impact on the world for Christ. Each year our budget has grown to reach more listeners and web visitors with relevant and accurate Bible teaching. It is our goal to use the resources God has graciously provided through our advocates as good stewards.

Focal Point has grown significantly in the last few years. More and more people have said yes to supporting the ongoing mission of this ministry. Our current goals are to be on the radio in every major city in the United States and expand internationally through translations of broadcasts and books. We have written books and discipleship materials in Spanish, Arabic, and Romanian and we hope to continue this effort to include all the world's major languages.
