IMF is a member of the National Association of Evangelicals. The NAE has spoken as a united voice for millions of American evangelicals since 1942. But, the voice of NAE is clearer, stronger and more broadly heard now than ever before. The association represents more than 45,000 local churches from over 40 different denominations and serves a constituency of millions. They serve to make denominations strong and effective, influence society for justice and righteousness, and gather the many voices of evangelicals together to be more effective for Jesus Christ and his cause.
IMF is an Associate Member of the Evangelicals Chaplains Commission. The ECC was formed in 1944 to assist evangelical chaplains in the military. The ECC is composed of denominations and churches that are first members of the NAE and then members of the ECC. These members together are the largest representative body of chaplains in the U.S. Armed Forces and Veterans Administration. The Commission currently represents over 1,000 active duty, Reserve, National Guard and civilian institutional chaplains serving around the world. This number includes IMF’s 70+ military chaplains. NAECC works to represent chaplains by keeping abreast of and speaking to decisions regarding chaplains that are being made by our nation’s leaders in Washington and around the world. IMF operates its own endorsing agency for chaplains while supporting NAECC’s standards and initiatives.
