Faith in Action Initiatives 

Baylor employees have consistently affirmed the organization’s mission and ministry as an influential factor in their work. In addition, Baylor has consistently supported its employees’ passions and invested in partnerships in Texas, the United States and around the world that reflect its commitment to health and healing.

The system started Faith in Action Initiatives (FIAI) to maximize its impact locally and world-wide by prioritizing the wide array of partnership and support opportunities in order to invest System resources wisely, avoid waste and duplication of effort.
