ICOF Ministers Association
The ICOF Colleges, Seminaries and Universities are a 21st Century Movement consisting of various Christian institutions of learning and was established in the United States with the goal of not focusing on doctrinal differences between various Christian organizations but rather working together as one family in Jesus Christ, reflecting Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer in John Chapter 17 where He prayed that we all might be one even as He and the Father are One.
From our beginnings in 1932 to the present the International Colleges of Fellows has grown from a network of 15 Churches to a Global Ministers Association of like-minded men and women of God coming from local, national and international churches. We have grown from just a few Ministers to a very large Ministers Association with more than 90,000 ministers, impacting every nation through equipping leadership and promoting oneness among Christians.
Today, ICOF is represented globally and works with national ministers associations and governments in delivering training and social services in partnership with local churches and various other kinds of ministries. The International Colleges of Fellows Global Network continues to equip Christians through the promotion of unity among Christian leaders and by ensuring that Ministers who are members of ICOF are honest, faithful, with good morals and that their integrity is above reproach and that they are committed members of their local churches or ministries.
The ICOF Ministers Association International does not promote division among churches and ministers. Breakaway churches are not accepted into ICOF unless a clearance letter is issued by the parent organization and verification is done by our National Secretariat. Instead, we focus on conflict resolution, both between individuals and organizations in order to better serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We encourage you to join with us, hand in hand, so that the Lord might be glorified and His Kingdom be moved forward until He returns in glory.
