Independent Church Fellowship


The Independent Church Fellowship is a division of Praise Center Full Gospel Church Association. The purpose of the fellowship is to encourage and support the ministries to do what God has called them to do despite challenges ministries often face.

Frustration overwhelms God’s people which too often leads to walking away from the call and vision that God has given. Often with new ministries, leaders fall victim to allowing others to measure the success of their ministry by the size of the congregation, building size, building ownership or padded seats.

The Independent Church Fellowship exists to encourage ministries to remain focused on the true measure of ministry, which is simply the anointing and presence of God in all that you do in His name. The Fellowship allows for a format of worship, prayer and fellowship. We pray for one another, we exhort one another and we fellowship with one another.

In addition to fellowshipping twice a year, we intermittently join together to accomplish community events which would be very challenging to attempt as an individual ministry. At all times, the goal is to include representatives of every ministry present to be participants in the activities of the day.
