The Good News Fellowship Network of Churches & Ministers is a worldwide organization dedicated to reaching, teaching, and equipping pastors and leaders so that they can more effectively make an impact through in their communities. To date, we have ordained 1,000 ministers and have networked over 300 churches.
Many of the ministers we ordain are young men and women who do not have a church, but have recognized God’s calling on their lives. We then support them in planting a church. What is also very encouraging is that pastors who have been serving faithfully for 50+ years come under our spiritual covering. These are some of the most humble men and women of God you will ever meet, and we are so honored to have them as a part of our organization. The Network is always expanding into new areas and regions. God’s hands is truly on it.
Most pastoral roles in the continent of Africa are volunteer positions. They do not get paid for pastoring their church and instead take 1-2 other jobs. The time demand alone is large burden to bare, let alone a financial burden. That is why we are so excited to be able to provide multiple conferences each year that are 100% free. At our conferences we give practical training, spiritual teaching, and radical preaching. Pastors leave encouraged and excited about making an impact, but we don’t send them home empty handed. Thanks to donations from several culture-shaking ministries, we are able to give pastors and leaders free books, CD’s, DVD’s, and sermon outlines that will continue to deepen their knowledge of the Word. The best part is that you do not have to be a part of The Network to attend these free conferences or receive free resources. They are open to everyone.
Free leadership conferences are only one part of what The Network does. We provide accountability and a spiritual covering for our pastors. Many times in ministry you will encounter opposition and situations that are hard to handle on your own. The Network is the pastor’s advocate, and a shoulder to cry on. Isolation is never a good thing when you are in ministry. We have found that many pastors in Africa tend to isolate themselves and begin to doubt the calling of God on their lives. The Network allows these men and women to easily connect with other pastors & leaders so that isolation is a thing of the past.
The Good News Fellowship Network of Churches and Ministers is unique in that it is cross-denominational. It doesn’t matter if you are baptist, Catholic, AOG, or something else. In reality, that is what the Body of Christ should be. A cross-denominational network of churches and believers who are all working for the greater good until the day that Jesus returns.
