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.

  • Prayer Guide – April 2023
    As they were going out, they met a man from Cyrene, named Simon, and they forced him to carry the cross. They came to a place called Golgotha (which means” The Place of the Skull”). There they off ered Jesus some wine to drink, mixed with gall, but after tasting it, He refused to drink it. When they had nailed Him to the cross, they divided his clothes by casting lots. And sitting down they kept watch over Him there, (Matthew 27:32-36). Jesus had been beaten, mocked, spit on and up all night. His physical body was weak. Simon was probably one of the thousands of Jews in Jerusalem because of the Passover celebration
  • The Pastor’s Piece – March 19, 2023
    Last week, my wife and I were on vacation in Florida. Our daughter, who lives in Tennessee, joined us and we made a week of it. The first thing we did was pick her up at the airport and then we went straight to The Melting Pot restaurant.
  • The Pastor’s Piece – March 12, 2023
    Several years ago, I needed a rim for one of my old tractors. It’s a 1958 IHC 330 loader tractor. After I bought the tractor, I took the loader off and it (the loader) has been sitting in the corner of the shed ever since. We were busy restoring the old gem when we noticed it had a cracked rim on the right rear.

    Time – It’s that time of year again – Daylight Saving Time (Saving – not Savings). The clocks go ahead in order to give us more daylight. But we all know moving the clocks around doesn’t add or take away any amount of time. We also know there is no such thing as making time or losing time. Time is constant.
  • National Farm Machinery Show and Prayer Event
    The National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky took place at the Kentucky Convention Center from Wednesday, February 15 through Saturday, February 18, 2023.
  • Prayer Guide – March 2023
    Sanctify them by the truth, Your Word is truth. As You sent Me into the world, I have sent them into the world. For them I sanctify Myself, that they too may be truly sanctifi ed, (John 17:17-19). The Bible is our standard…not what the world says is true. We pray to live by the guidelines of the Bible.



Serving, Sowing, Reaping For Christ Around The World
