Application Process

Becoming a member of MFI is a process. If MFI is really going to be all that it purposes to be, membership must involve more than merely signing up, putting one's name on a list and mailing regular checks.

 

Spiritual Steps


On the spiritual side, becoming a member of MFI starts with the leading of the Holy Spirit in the heart of the minister to do so. It is important for the sake of covenant relationship that every member of the Fellowship feels that the Head of the Church has grafted him or her into the Fellowship. In addition, there must be a natural process, much like a courtship, to determine if the minister is compatible with the vision and direction of the Fellowship. The process of membership begins in the heart of the minister applicant himself.

 

 

Who can join MFI?


MFI is not for everyone. It is not for ministers who already have this kind of spiritual connection and covering through other like organizations. It is for pastors and church leaders who feel a need for and do not have this kind of connection.

 

Because of a high regard for the importance and autonomy of the local church, the senior pastor is the door through which their church leaders may come into the Fellowship. All prospective members must be under the authority and covering of a local church eldership and must be sponsored into membership by their senior pastor who is already a member.

 

Questions


If MFI sounds like something that you would like to be part of, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do I feel that I could support and exemplify the doctrinal emphasis of MFI?
  2. Do I feel a need to relate to like-minded pastors who are seeking to build a glorious church in these days?
  3. Do I want to relate in fellowship with and have mutual accountability to other leaders with strong convictions?
  4. Do I want to join efforts with complementary ministers to see God accomplish His purpose to extend His kingdom into the entire world?

 

If the answer to these questions is yes, then you are definitely a candidate for membership in MFI!

 

Practical Steps


On the practical side, becoming a member involves submitting to a rather detailed process that includes:

  1. A Sponsor: Under normal circumstances, a senior pastor member or a member of the Apostolic Leadership Team must be willing to sponsor a person into the Fellowship based on the personal relationship to the candidate and knowledge of his/her personal character and work.
  2. An Application: An official application must be completed and returned to the MFI office.
  3. Conference Attendance: Each prospective member must attend one of the MFI sponsored conferences as an observer.
  4. An Interview: Applicants must make themselves available for an informal interview with a member of the Apostolic Leadership Team and one other member of MFI.
  5. Final Approval: The Apostolic Leadership Team makes the final approval of all applicants who have completed the membership process. New members receive an official letter of acceptance and a certificate. In addition, they are received into formal membership at an annual conference.
