This year, FICWFM will host its Annual Convention on Tuesday, July 12th,2016 – Thursday July 14th, 2016 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. located at 801 Mt. Vernon Pl NW, Washington, D.C. 20001. The primary purpose of each annual convention is for pastors, ministers and congregations of like precious faith to come together to rally around God’s Word. Convention delegates receive the teaching ministries of our Fellowship Founders, Apostle Fred and Betty Price, President Dr. Michael A. Freeman, and other noted ministers of the Gospel as well.
In addition to fellowshipping and worshipping together, another goal of the convention is to strengthen and build the local ministry through a series of worship services and in-depth workshops and seminars designed not only for the pastor/minister, but church staff and auxiliary workers as well. A series of excellent ministerial and staff development workshops conducted by highly skilled professionals specializing in key areas of ministry operations are conducted during convention week. These include operations such as new members’ assimilation and retention, church administration, Christian school development and education, finance, youth ministries and why your ministry should be on social media. A variety of seminars targeted at developing and expanding the ministry of helps are also held. A broad scope of information and training in the practical ministry of the Word is available at all levels.
FICWFM is a family affair! We offer nursery services, Summer JAM for children runs concurrent to the general convention for children from kindergarten through 6th grade, and Teen Services. Their fun-filled Word-centered activities are designed especially for the young Believers. These activities and services also serve as excellent hands-on training workshops for developing children’s church leaders.
