Every day, men and women in ministry are pouring out their lives for the needs of the Body of Christ. But who meets the special needs of these ministers—the need to be encouraged, inspired and connected with others who face the challenges of leadership?
From its birth in 1979, ICFM has ministered to those who are called to "hold forth, contend for and propagate the Word of Faith worldwide".
For more than 30 years, members of ICFM have provided one another an environment and support system for healthy, growing ministries through fellowship, inspiration and training.
Fellowship is “joint participation.” Victory is always easier with someone at your side who knows what it means to hold up standard of faith in your life and ministry to the Body of Christ. ICFM provides fellowship with other ministers of like precious faith in your area and throughout the world.
Inspiration has been a foundational goal of ICFM. As a minister, you are constantly giving of yourself to influence and inspire others. You need inspiration too. Whether by one-on-one relationships, through our published materials, such as the Faith Report, the Prayer Network, or regional and international conventions, you will be inspired to complete your ministry calling.
Training and mentoring give you the strength and insight to finish the course. Through its varied training opportunities, ICFM helps fulfill the Biblical commission to equip leaders. Grass roots mentoring relationships, structured workshops, and discipleship materials help you take advantage of the experiences of others who have worked through the same challenges you face in ministry.
By providing this structure you can maximize your effectiveness in ministry, acquire opportunities for fellowship, inspiration and training, and receive from one another “that which every joint supplies.”
The results? Relationships, tools and encouragement that provide a solid foundation for multiplication and effective ministry.
