The Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International is an organization sovereignly ordained by God. From one small chapter in Los Angeles, California in 1951 – it was thrust into global ministry by prophetic visions and prophecy.
Today the Fellowship operates in approximately150 countries. Thousands of chapters hold meetings in small hamlets, farm towns, outlying suburbs and urban power centers. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, these meetings are a time of fellowship, outreach and personal ministry.
With another National Convention by the Freemasons in late April, no wonder why Cagayan de Oro indeed is a convention city.
