International Ministerial Fellowship (IMF) is an association of evangelical Christian churches, ministers and lay workers with an emphasis on the centrality of Christ and the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. We offer multiple ministry resources to our members including, but not limited to: appropriate ministerial credentials, ecclesiastical endorsement for chaplains, the service of a missions sending agency, various training resources, and much more. We believe the “call” to Christian ministry is not limited only to those who have completed both college and seminary, or any other particular level of formal education. With over 1,400 ministry leaders across the United States and 50+ missionaries in over 50 countries, IMF is serving those who serve others.
I joined IMF because I wanted an interdenominational fellowship association for my military chaplaincy ministry. In a time of increasing fracturing and division within the church, it is refreshing to be part of a group of people from all different backgrounds who are focused on the gospel. I appreciate the support and encouragement I receive from this body.
I chose to move my ministry credentials to IMF in 2006. I had several friends who were members of IMF and they highly recommended that I join. I'm so glad I did. I have served on the Board of Directors and now serve on the Board of Trustees. Because of this, I have seen first hand how well the leaders serve with authenticity, excellence and compassion.
I was privileged to join IMF in 2002. Without a doubt, IMF is an exceptional support ministry! Staff are very responsive & efficient, with any requests I have made. I have been so blessed by the encouragement for my nursing home ministry. Being a member of IMF is one of the biggest blessings of my life!
I was an ordained minister with IMF since 2009. This ministerial credential has helped me to be recognized by the churches who invited me to preach and minister in the churches in Singapore. I thank God for such opportunities to be able to serve God.
IMF is a vital part of my ministry and Spiritual life. I joined in 1994 along with my late husband, Paris. Paris only lived one year but I stayed connected to this ministry. IMF truly loves the Lord, it shows, and makes a difference.
I am so thankful for IMF and the way they have come alongside of me as I pursue the call to prison ministry! There are daily challenges and obstacles in this type of service but God continues to show Himself faithful behind the wall as we seek to represent and tell of Jesus!
