Future Ministry Center Update

IFM's long awaited vision to open a Ministry Center to provide a “home away from home” and Hospitality Center for internationals who reside in our area is so close to becoming a reality! Because of your prayers and giving, we've raised over $650,000 in gifts and pledges!

These watercolor images represent our dream of providing an upscale, aesthetic, and Christ-centered atmosphere where friendships can be developed across social, cultural, political, and religious lines.

  • Arts Academy Expansion

Community Impact

The center will provide a permanent central location for outreach and ministry to the rapidly growing international community.

The center will be a place of hospitality, creativity, and friendship connections between internationals and local residents. The center will provide a comfortable setting for classes, seminars, retreats, workshops, and conferences.

The center will provide a library with excellent character-building books, Christian devotionals, study materials, family friendly dvds, children’s books and resources in different languages. A bookstore and resource center will be added in the near future.

The center will provide different cultural groups and the local community a much-needed place to rent for special events.

Please join us in praying and giving.

EVERY DOLLAR brings us one step closer to making an official offer on the building!
