Faith Outreach Center Ministerial Fellowship
A part of Faith Outreach Center, Faith Outreach Center Ministerial Fellowship (FOCMF) provides, as its primary purpose, credentials for those qualified individuals, churches, and ministries based upon their call and verifiable activity in a specific area of ministry.
It is often said that we are known by our associations and FOCMF provides a credible relationship with an established ministry that is a resource of ministry counseling, educational opportunities and fellowship. It is also a means of support for each person who has responded to "as the Father has sent Me , so I also send you," John 20:21.
There are three levels of membership within FOCMF:
A. Licensure: the primary level of membership given to those who currently or are being considered to provide ministry functions with the local church or ministry, not necessarily in a paid position, and needs credentials for identification or official designation as a minister (prison or hospital visitation, preaching or teaching responsibilities).
B. Ordination: the level of membership that provides those who a call of God on their life to fulfill the position of counselor, missionary, psalmist, or one of the five-fold ministry gifts listed in Ephesians 4:11 which also designates an individual legal authority as an officer of the State of Florida empowered for legal ceremonies such as marriages, funerals and any other ministerial function appropriate for a "Minister of the Gospel."
C. Affiliation: a level of membership for either a church or ministry that is not currently affiliated with any other denominational or governmental agency that provides an avenue of accountability, fellowship and continued training in the areas of ministry.
Additional purposes of the Fellowship:
A. A source of identification and relationship is provided with like-minded ministers, churches and ministries.
B. A provision of support with resources that include:
1. Ministry and personal counseling for those actively involved in the Fellowship;
2. Recommendations of individuals who may fill a need;
3. Mediation on spiritual, legal or personal disputes and misunderstandings;
4. Spiritual accountability for ministry and individual needs that would bring into question the member's Christian witness or behavior that may violate biblical principles. (I Thessalonians 5:22).

If you are one of those "precious saints" called the "elderly", you can thank God, for you have arrived at the apex of life. You have arrived at the top of the mountain where you can breathe the rare atmosphere of a long life of experience, knowledge, & honor and have an excellent view that none of those below you have ever seen. You have crossed many bridges, passed many crossroads and have come out on top. The wrinkles in your face are marks of distinction that show character traits, laugh lines, & worries.
-You may have lost your whistle, but thank God, you can still breathe and have a sturdy heartbeat.
-Your beautiful gray hair marks you with honor.
the Bible speaks well of you when it says, "The beauty of old men is the gray head." Proverbs 20:29
Ages 55 & up, we gather together weekly during the Bible Study Hour & monthly meetings are scheduled for special activities, good times, & fellowship.

Faith Outreach Academy
Our duty and desire is to offer the children entrusted to our care the very best life preparation possible. A child's education is for the purpose of preparing him for the unique call of God on his life. Our desire is to work closely with the Christian home and church to ensure each child is fully equipped to face the life and ministry challenges that lie ahead (Ephesians 4:8-14).
We believe that the Christian school is an extension of the Christian home and that parents are responsible for the education of their children (Proverbs 22:6). Our duty is to assist Christian parents by making sure that the curriculum and methodology presented in the classroom is fully Christian.
Faith Theological Seminary & Christian College
From the inception of the vision for Faith Theological Seminary and Christian College, our President, Dr. George W. Walters, Jr., believed that the institution should have a four-fold purpose by providing the following:
A. A basic foundation for beginning Christians in the Word of God to gain confidence in their relationship with the Lord.
B. Training for service in the local church (whether for staff member or volunteer) as well as advanced training for older Christians to be able to provide support to the work of the ministry.
C. A program to prepare people for ministry as they sense God’s call on their life.
D. Advanced studies for the seasoned minister and the development of academic credentials for a life of ministry experience.
The educational training is focused on preparing and equipping the individual for religious vocations within the context of the local church, ministry opportunities outside of the church, and/or para-church organizations.
