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.

Your Brother in Christ,
Dennis Schlagel
FCFI Executive Director

  • Prayer Guide – October 2022
    Now when a man works, his wages are not credited to him as a gift, but as an obligation. However, to the man who does not work but trusts God who justifi es the wicked, his faith is credited as righteousness, (Roman4:4-5). We aren’t saved by works. It is Jesus Christ who saves us, not our feeling or actions. He is the only one strong enough to save us no matter how weak our faith is.
  • The Pastor’s Piece – September 25, 2022
    My phone rang just after five o’clock. I was still in bed and I figured I’d get it when I got up in a few minutes. Sometimes one of my brothers will call early so I didn’t worry about it. About five minutes later my phone rang again. By the time I was able to get downstairs to answer, it was too late. I saw the calls were from two different brothers. At that early hour, that can’t be good. 
  • The Pastor’s Piece – September 18, 2022
    Recently, I was reading a story in a newspaper publication on why the Dairy Breakfast was canceled this past June in Lafayette County, Wisconsin. What caught my attention was the headline: “Road disrepair dead ends dairy breakfast”.  The article said that the dairy breakfast “organizers decided that a spate of road and bridge repairs would make it difficult for people to even get to the June 11 event.
  • 2022 Fall Nittany Antique Machinery Association Show
    The 2022 Fall Nittany Antique Machinery Association Show happened September 8-11 at Penns Cave Grounds, Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. Michael and Karen Steele worked the show. 4 people received Jesus as their savior.
  • The Pastor’s Piece – September 11, 2022
    My day started early yesterday and ended late, but it couldn’t have ended better. A young man who was visiting our church with some friends, came to Bible study, heard the message of God from the Bible, and decided he’d rather go to heaven than hell, so he committed his life to Jesus before he went home. We ended up standing around in the kitchen at church, talking about eternity, man, sin, and angels and what God expects from us and he decided he wanted to ask Jesus into his heart. So he prayed and did just that! The day couldn’t have ended better. God is good all the time. 
  • Farm Progress Show 2022
    The Farm Progress Show made it back to Boone, Iowa, after missing 2020 and alternating every year with Decatur, Illinois. The weather was perfect, as seen in this first photo. From the Farm Progress Show website: “For over 50 years, the Farm Progress Show has connected farmers from across the globe with agriculture’s leading companies. With hundreds of exhibitors, there’s no better place to engage with the latest farm products and the specialists who developed, tested and designed them. Whether you are looking to innovate with the latest ag-technology, learn from industry experts, or share your farming legacy with your family, the Farm Progress Show has it all.”
