Faith Works Ministry

Greg Amundson founded the nonprofit “Faith Works Ministry” during the winter of 2017. Inspired by the belief that, “The body is a temple for the soul” (1 Corinthians 6:19), the purpose of Faith Works Ministry is threefold:

  1. Develop Faith in God by Forging Strength in Mind, Body and Spirit;
  2. Integrate Physical Fitness into Worship of God;
  3. Assist Veterans through Education and Inspiration that, “Faith – Works!”

A Veteran of the United States Army and former Special Agent with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Greg has a huge heart for Veterans and the Law Enforcement Community, especially those who have faced the challenges of combat, and the effects of traumatic stress. Faith Works Ministry is a place of worship for everyone, yet is presented through the perspective of the Warrior and Service Member of both Military, Firefighter and Law Enforcement.

Faith Works Ministry meets once a month at CrossFit Amundson in Santa Cruz, CA. Following a workout, Greg leads a ministry, where he weaves stories and lessons from the Warrior Tradition with the Life of Jesus Christ, and Word of God. CrossFit Gyms from around the Country are encouraged to adopt a Faith Works Ministry in their community. For more information, to make a donation or to get involved, please email
