MICN is a network of networks. We are proud to partner with these international church and para-church organizations in order to connect and serve you better.
GDN seeks to mobilize followers of Jesus to fulfill God’s missional purposes among the people on the move. We operate under the Lausanne Movement and embrace its philosophy of ministry: “Together we seek to bear witness to Jesus Christ and all his teachings, in every part of the world—not only geographically, but in every sphere of society and in the realm of ideas”. Our vision is to see the global Church, mission leaders, and agencies empowered and responding effectively to the missional opportunities presented by global migration and diaspora communities. Further, we envision leading seminaries and learning institutions across the globe to provide focused training in diaspora missiology that will produce future leaders who are equipped for Spirit-filled engagement in mission to, through and beyond diasporas.
The International Baptist Convention (IBC) is a fellowship of English-language churches and church plants in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas which voluntarily cooperate with each other to mobilize and multiply disciple-making churches. We envision a movement of global-minded churches that are reproducing healthy disciples, leaders, and congregations. The convention is comprised of 65 English-language churches and church plants located in 26 countries.
The China International Church Fellowship, CIF, came together as international churches across China recognized a need for mutual support. As we began to discuss together the challenges of “doing church” in China, we found insightful counsel in how best to deal with issues of government, facilities, staffing visas, and much more. Each year the CIF conference is held in a different location, with conferences being held in major cities like Chengdu, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Beijing. We are grateful to the Lord for each and every international fellowship in China, serving the global church in some of China’s neediest cities.
Global International Church Network (GICN) is a relational connection for a global network of international churches. Our intentional desire is to establish visibility, encourage vision and enhance the vitality of our churches. The idea for GICN (Global International Church Network) was birthed during a time of worship and prayer in 2011 at a retreat for the Fellowship of European International Churches (FEIC). Several members commented on friends of international churches outside of Europe who sought to have the same relational community that we enjoy in Europe. Several pastors and leaders of international churches from outside of Europe were already attending our European IC events, and others were connecting through online correspondence. The need for a global relational connection resurfaced throughout the conference. Clearly, God was speaking. Coming away from the 2011 retreat, FEIC founder Terry Hoggard felt that God was leading us to invest in creating a global network to connect international churches relationally. About this same time the Assemblies of God World Mission, was moving towards a new initiative to plant international churches around the world. The GICN vision was shared with the AGWM leadership and received with great enthusiasm.
The Fellowship of European International Churches (FEIC) is a relational network comprised of congregations that minister to the unique opportunities, needs and challenges of international communities in European cites. Our network churches are a tapestry of cultures and traditions, races and people groups, languages and nationalities united under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. FEIC is committed to: plant new churches; position existing churches for strategic development; and partner with national churches to do international ministry. As a relational network, FEIC offers: supportive relationships that provide meaningful connection; sharing of resources that are specific to international ministry; and strategic church renewal and leadership development opportunities.
