SADC Regional Director, January 2012 - present
Firstly, it is inclusive, embracing senior and younger ministers of the gospel, male and female who have a felt need to encourage one another to make pursuit of holiness a prime pursuit. We have equal opportunities for male and female ministers because we recognize that The New Creation who are sons of God in His Kingdom receive their callings and gifts in the realm of the spirit-man which is neither male nor female.
Secondly, it breaks down standard walls that divide the Body of Christ as members cut across denominational barriers, united by faith in Christ Jesus, purity of life and dependency on the Holy Spirit for empowerment.
Thirdly, IMF does not charge any affiliation fees. Members support the network, as they are led, through love offerings and free will endowments.
Fourthly, members are free to belong to other fellowships /networks they deem beneficial to achievement of their ministerial mandates.
Fifthly, the Fellowship shall encourage its members to make their lives and those of the flock of Jesus Christ committed unto their trust, the light and salt of their communities; to stand out for righteousness and contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints and not to be ashamed of the preaching of the Cross though it seem foolish to brethren of the Laodecian complex (Matthew 5:13-16, Jude 5, 1 Cor. 1:18).
Sixthly, the Fellowship shall proactively engage with other Christian organizations to ensure unity of the spirit in the bond of peace so that the High Priestly intercession of our Lord Jesus Christ shall be a reality without compromising the essentials of the gospel.( Ephesians 4: 1-7, John 17 to attain Ephesians 5:26,27). Accordingly, the Fellowship will encourage all Christian ministries and organizations in the country to prayerfully define essentials or fundamentals of the faith to which all must subscribe in perfect unity; ascertain those issues to which preachers are at liberty to propound their perspectives, insights and revelations received.
Seventh, the Fellowship offers its members a clear win-win supra platform where they are able to exchange information on programmes and projects and support each other. We are all blessed as we bless each other in love and sincerity!
