INTERFAITH FELLOWSHIP OF PARTNERING MINISTRIES

IFOPM gives us an opportunity to expand the impact of our ministries and organizations and administrate a group of Clergy and leaders who sense a spiritual connection with one another. The Interfaith Fellowship of Partnering Ministries is not a denomination. It is an organization with a definite agenda to provide wisdom, guidance and oversight by request to enrich and accelerate the growth, development and impact of its membership ministries.

IFOPM is ordained of God and will function with excellence and a commitment to integrity. IFOPM is an answer to a call of many clergy and leaders to establish a networking organization which provides clergy and leaders an organized network for the advancement of the kingdom of God in our generation. IFOPM is designed to help us meet our potential and productivity. We embark on this task with great anticipation that God has and will set clergy and leaders in IFOPM as it pleases Him.
