2017 A2 Conference Recap

 

Dear MFI Leader,
 
We just completed our 2 in 1 combined east-west conference here in Portland, OR. The combined conference had a rich sense of reunion, laughter, tears and conversations with a great buzz throughout the conference. It was a milestone and a time in our fellowship where something significant happened. Thank you to all who could make it and so sorry for those who were not able to attend. We will provide all general sessions you can view on our web in the next few days.
 
The conference had so many ingredients that made it one of, if not, the best conference we have ever had together. Every speaker came ready and delivered! The 48 app sessions were over the top, the 7 in 7 Session had the conference attendees standing on their feet cheering. There was so much that happened and some things both in the heavens and in the natural changed. Let me briefly state some important communication that took place this week.

 

  1. We made a bold shift to move away from a dues paying fellowship to generosity giving. The old system of MFI asking you for your dues is over! It is now your heart and your faith that will sustain MFI. I can’t possibly put into words what happened at the conference when this change was announced. It was woven throughout the conference. We were seeking to reboot the heart and soul of MFI. The heart of a family and the soul of leaders knit together to relate, encourage and help each other build their church. We simply gave out a Generosity Commitment card to each pastor and leader so they could communicate to us their giving desire for 2018. Not by size of your church, or any other measuring rod, just your heart for MFI and the purpose of MFI that motivates you to give generously, joyfully and with faith. I give some explanation of this in the Tuesday AM General Session. Please join us and watch the session by clicking here. If you have not had a chance to fill out a Generosity Commitment, please do so by clicking here 
  2. In 2018, we will keep the conference combined on the west coast in Portland, Oregon once again. It’s where it all started and everyone seemed to feel strong about being all together. It was definitely a great feel. The dates for 2018 are October 1-3.
  3. We will continue the Vision Offering separate from the Generosity Commitment that replaced the dues. The Vision Offering has always been for whoever wanted to give toward MFI International expansion. We have started MFI Canada and we gave them all the monies from those churches now forming MFI Canada. We planted a $60,000 seed into Canada. MFI Malaysia is also on a track to launch in 2018, as well as MFI Cambodia. We will have influence with these nations as we help them with structure, speakers, resources and all this comes from our Vision Offering fund. Please continue this offering as it is our expansion worldwide money. To give or pledge to the 2018 Vision Fund, please click here.

Thank you to everyone who made this conference such a great success. We had a wonderful spirit of unity and fellowship from day one and it wouldn't have been possible without you. As we move into this new season, I believe it will be fruitful and abundant. Please help us build the 2018 budget by making your Generosity Commitment of whatever amount is on your heart. 

Thank you and blessings,

Frank Damazio
Chairman of MFI
