Ministers Fellowship International exists to facilitate and nurture meaningful relationships among member ministers, equipping and enabling them to be more effective in their callings,for the purpose of building and multiplying strong local churches around the world.
Many ministers have a need for peer relationships where they can be open and accountable. They also need to know that there are others who can stand with them in love and encouragement.
Every minister needs to have times away where he or she can gain new perspective on what is happening in his church and the church world. In our rapidly changing culture, there is a need to be aware of current trends and how to respond to them. The MFI website and the regional conferences help the leader stay abreast of current trends both in secular culture and in the church world.
Most leaders desire ongoing training and further education so that they can become more effective at what they do. Through the regional conferences, networks, and website, MFI assists the ministers in becoming better equipped to face the challenges of today.
Every minister and support leader desires to find resources for the growth and development of their church, yet researching these can take more time than the leader can give. Through the networks and website, MFI provides a forum for ongoing discussions on ministry tools as well as providing resource materials for all areas of ministry: children, youth, missions, administration, business, worship and more. MFI also provides access to apostolic ministers and leaders who can counsel ministers who are in need of assistance on any level.
Most church leaders are continually giving out and ministering to others, but who ministers to them? Where do the shepherds have an opportunity to be sheep and receive pastoral ministry? The MFI conferences are a place where ministers can have time away to receive refreshing and a personal touch from God.
All visionary leaders have a desire to be part of something that is going to make a difference in the kingdom of God. By joining together with other leaders of like vision, they will be able to make a much greater impact on the world and have a greater possibility of realizing the vision that is in their hearts. MFI’s international outreach and expansion can be shared by the entire membership of MFI.
Ministers Fellowship International has strong convictions regarding the autonomy of the local church. These underlying convictions affect everything that MFI does and guide every policy that MFI establishes.
