2015 Equipping The Saints Gathering

Hello from SFMI,

I’m Dick York and I would like to invite you to the 2015 “Equipping the Saints Gathering” in Bend Oregon on the evening of October 3rd and all day Saturday, October 4th.  Many of you participated in the SFMI training program in years past and we would like to encourage you to continue with that vision. In 2013 we had a reunion of former SFMI trainees, at which time many were encouraged. We decided at that time to schedule another gathering in two years. The time has come, and this time we would like to include some who are not alumni, but who seriously share the vision of evangelism and discipleship making.

We are now living in the perilous times of which the Bible has forewarned us. At this time there are many opportunities available in the world with which we at SFMI have been confronted. There is a critical need for laborers, teachers, prayers and providers. This is the time for us to be equipped and join in the battle being waged for souls.

Our gathering will be a time to revisit our role in the earth and how we can cooperate in the Lord’s business. It will be a time to encourage one another and to help us prepare for our place in the end times. It is also our hope that there will be those who will desire to participate on teams to meet the requests for help from various theaters of the world. Please join with us in this “Equipping the Saints Gathering 2015.”

We want to include those with a serious concern. If that is you, please respond by replying to this email at: sfmi@sfmiusa.org and you will receive a personal invitation to attend the event.

Psalm 2:8 "Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. "

Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."


We are glad you are visiting us on our new web site. SFMI stands for Shield of Faith Mission International, a Christ-centered, denominationally unaffililiated missionary organization since 1953. SFMI seeks to fulfill its role in the Great Commission on two fronts: world evangelization and discipleship in local churches. Our ministry, both at home and abroad, includes Bible conferences, missionary training, and seminars. Our objective is to edify, to encourage the exercise of each believer's gift, to stimulate vision, and to inform. We have two ways to regularly keep in touch: our bimonthly newsletters and our email alerts called 'Frontline News.' Please contact us if you are interested in either of these.
