Information and Assistance:
Resources for the independent church and pastor are provided through counsel, organizational materials, training conferences, and partnership in ministry in countries around the world. Exemption status with the Internal Revenue Service is automatic for every member church.
Supplementary Financial Assistance in Retirement:
A program to enable interested and concerned individuals or churches to contribute toward the assistance of approved retirement age IFCA International brothers by specific and designated giving to IFCA International Benevolence Committee. Our retired pastors are especially grateful for this service.
Special help in times of personal and community crisis is made though our Benevolence program. This has been of tremendous assistance to victims of the Asian Tsunami (December 2004) and Hurricane Katrina (August 2005). We were able to target considerable resources (nearly $900,000) given by our constituency to assist in relief efforts through IFCA International affiliated churches and individuals in those areas. We continued similar joint efforts more recently in Manipur, India and their famine in 2009; Haiti, following their earthquake in 2010, Japan, following their tsumani in 2011, and The Philippines, following their typhoon in 2013.
