GSFI is not for everyone. It is for pastors and churches who desire spiritual and corporate oversight and integral fellowship with men and women seeking to fulfill their purpose in ministry. GSFI highly regards the importance of the autonomy of the local church, wherein being independent and self-governing, as we are a fellowship and not a denomination. Other guidelines are:
ÿ You must be a senior pastor or be sponsored by a member pastor.
ÿ You must be a church or tax exempt non-profit para-church ministry.
ÿ You must agree with our Statement of Faith and be doctrinally compatible.
ÿ You must be able to attend GSFI pastoral conferences.
