- Work with FCNL
When Faith and Witness Find Feet
FCNL Visiting Friends engage with nearby meetings and churches, sharing how Quaker advocacy and FCNL can help Friends live out their own faith through action. As a Visiting Friend, you will invite Friends to take spirit-led action in meaningful and effective ways, and connect Friends with opportunities to witness for the World We Seek.
With support and guidance from FCNL staff, you can share your transformational story of faith and action, and the power of Quaker advocacy.
Come join us and be the spark that helps light the Fire within.
Quakers have a deep history of visitation outside one’s own meeting—seeking fellowship and deepening ties with Friends by way of personal connection. Rooted in this practice, Visiting Friends give presentations to meetings and churches about the core components of FCNL’s work to help nurture, connect, and energize Friends into faithful action.
