International MFI Update on Vision Giving

Thank you to the 102 churches and leaders who joined together this last October to pledge towards the vision fund for work around the world. Because of these pledges nearly $100,000 was committed to serving leaders and churches in other parts of the world.  While we reach out and bless many pastors and leaders throughout the world, our goal is for our International Networks and Affiliates to become either partly or fully self-supporting so that we can continue to expand our influence into other nations around the world. We are happy to be able to report on some of the following areas of the world where that has been achieved.

Australia - February 28 - March 2, 2017

Our 25th MFI Australasian conference, "ADVANCE 2017" was held February 28 -March 2 in Queensland, Australia. We were delighted to observe across the generations, God's pastors and leaders enjoying fellowship and receiving encouragement from one another.

With ''Advance'' being the annual theme, and relationship being one of our highest focal points/values, the sessions were greatly uplifting and forward moving. The guest speakers, as well as the local MFI Australasia speakers were all amazing, and so well received. Each speaker brought a sense of ADVANCEMENT into the hearts and lives of all the leaders in attendance through good Bible teaching and sharing life's experiences in Christ and the local church.

We were most appreciative of the spiritual impartation that Jerry and Susan David brought, this time coming back as guest speakers after 7 years. Both in content and presentation, they were outstanding, and we loved their humorous insights and open sharing of their experiences from about 40 years of ministry, and regarding the church of today.

The lovely relaxing venue and accommodation, enabled some great fellowship to be shared after sessions, and around tables with some beautiful friends over lunches. The weather was also very nice so some made the most of the opportunity to freshen up in the pool!

In the evaluation survey results received at the end, many members remarked how they felt it was definitely one of the best conferences yet. This was the first time an annual national conference had been held in Queensland. The change proved very effective and worthwhile, show-casing MFI in another state where several new pastors and leaders were able to get a window into MFI AUSTRALASIA.

Mexico - March 15-17, 2017

The MFI Mexico Conference was the highlight of our year, bringing in our MFI pastors from 17 of the 32 states in Mexico.  It was very motivating for all attendees with the theme being: "Accelerate." God is expanding us, increasing our thinking, our faith and our actions and finances.  He is doing a quicker work than maybe we thought or planned for.  He is gearing all of us up for a great harvest of souls through rapid church planting and raising up new pastors and leaders more quickly than in years past. We are and will experience more miracles in our churches and ministries to extend the kingdom at a higher velocity and momentum. 

Our speakers were Bob MacGregor from the USA, Rick Seaward from Singapore, Hector Nufio from Guatemala, Emilio and Osmany Alonso from Cuba, and Phil and Judy Jaquith from Mexico. Around 150 leaders registered and we had 8 nations represented.

Many subjects were covered with vital and practical messages around the theme. Pastoral and leadership areas, miracles and healing, church planting, missions - going - sending and giving, prayer, discipleship. We had a panel session with all the guest speakers as well as a time of ministry with prayer and prophetic.

Of course, the fellowship around food and meeting times is one of the highlights in Latin America that no one wants to miss! God is good and on the move in Mexico, Central America, and beyond. We want to thank the ALT for their participation in prayer, speakers, finances and backing in every way to make it all possible. Blessings!

Our Purpose

The purpose of the annual vision offering is to provide practical assistance to church leaders in many parts of the world. This includes provision of ministry resources, financial and ministry assistance for Affiliate and Network conferences, partial scholarships for international leaders to the Annual MFI conference, international travel assistance for apostolic leaders, and the staffing of an international director. While our monthly dues establish a budget which provides staff for the entire network, a web-site with resources and communication tools, regional leadership conferences throughout North America and facilitates an international conference that fosters a nearly three-decade history of relationships, it does not allow for significant influence in other nations.

Our churches rally together in October to pledge and contribute towards the strategic influence and expansion of MFI beyond North America. We are privileged to be a part of a network of churches that are having Kingdom impact throughout the world in over 45 countries. The report above is just a small sampling of what is being accomplished through the MFI Vision fund.

If you or your church would like to join with us in the 2017 vision giving opportunity, you can still partner with the many other churches and leaders who are already involved. Simply contact the MFI office and let a team member know that you’d like to make a difference too!
