We are ECFA Accredited

Founded 40 years ago by Billy Graham and other evangelical leaders, Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) has grown from a visionary and faithful group of 150 charter members to over 2,600 leading churches and ministries across the United States today.

ECFA enhances trust in Christ-centered churches and ministries through its annual accreditation of organizations based on Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, drawn from Scripture.

ECFA serves as a financial accountability partner to ministries who voluntarily seek accreditation and continue to demonstrate their commitment to ECFA’s high standards faithfully. The standards are set at an appropriately high level to provide the essential guardrails for financial integrity in churches and ministries of all sizes. While admittedly, the standards do not address every potential issue or challenge an organization may encounter, they have stood the test of time in helping thousands of churches and ministries enhance trust and become better stewards of their God-given resources.

Additionally, ECFA promotes financial accountability and best practices through innovative resources, including books and eBooks, webinars, videos, podcasts, blogs, research in best practices, conferences, and more.

The Fellowship of Christian Farmers, International welcomes you to explore our ministry website to learn how FCFI members have been involved in disaster relief projects in Kentucky and Louisiana. Dozens of farm shows coming back “live” in 2022 including twenty State FFA Conventions where FCFI members interact with high school FFA members about their spiritual walk with the Lord. Thanks to the relationships built with Romania churches and their Pastors over the past 20 years of Mission trips to western Romania, FCFI was in a position to help with an underground railroad for Ukrainian children safely fleeing the violence in Kiev.

A monthly prayer guide is produced both in print and posted online for members to pray and submit “special prayer requests”. The 2022 growing season is going to be a challenging one due to input costs increasing and availability of insecticides and herbicides continues to be a challenge.

From the beginning of the Fellowship of Christian Farmers, International in 1985 at the Soybean Expo in San Antonio, Texas, friendship cultivation is still a high priority. Our friend from South Africa, Angus Buchan, told us long ago that, “Farming—you can’t do it alone.” We are striving to build more friendships for farmers in everything we do. Please contact us and submit how you would like to be communicated with, (phone, text, messenger, email etc). Digital communication helps lower printing and postage costs.

Hope to speak or meet with you soon.

    The nurse came in and said “Doc, there’s a man in the waiting room who thinks he’s invisible.” The doctor said, “Tell him I can’t see him today.”
  • Prayer Guide – February 2023
    Please pray for the family of Ginny, who passed away on the 4th of January with cancer. Ginny has been FCFI’s printer along with her daughter and husband Gary, (who passed several years ago with cancer). Please uphold Melissa and her siblings in your prayers.
  • The Pastor’s Piece – January 22, 2023
    A few weeks ago, I went on a one day road trip to Kokomo, Indiana. I don’t follow a map anymore – just my GPS. The beauty of GPS is that if you take the shortest route, you usually end up on the backroads somewhere.
  • The Pastor’s Piece – January 15, 2023
    I grew up a farm kid. My folks started out in Indiana as grain farmers and eventually became dairy farmers. That’s just the opposite of most people in the farming business. Usually, a person dairy farms first, sells their cattle, then becomes a grain farmer until they retire.

  • The Pastor’s Piece – January 8, 2023
    On Thursday, January 5, 2023 my dad woke up in the Land of Glory! This is from my journal from last week …  My dad is in the last hours of his earthly life. We got him home from the hospital on Monday evening. Since then, we’ve been gathering around his bedside day and night. One or more of us is with him 24/7.
