FGBMFI in South West

FGBMFI in South West

If you are looking for FGBMFI in South West then you have found the official UK website for the FGBMFI the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship INTERNATIONAL

At FGBMFI meetings, Christian men from different denominations and 'work backgrounds' share how the power of God has transformed their lives in everyday situations in South West

You can receive help, prayer for healing of the body, mind and spirit, and the empowering of the Holy Spirit from FGBMFI, where you are in South West.

A vital feature of FGBMFI meetings is mentoring and training in how to share your faith with work colleagues and introduce them to Jesus Christ; so that they can know God’s power in their life.


The FGBMFI is all about real life experiences.  What can be more relevant than sharing the experiences of men (and women), from all kinds of backgrounds in South West, from marketing to plumbing, from farming to IT, from the boardroom to the unemployed.

You will meet men and women at FGBMFI, who know the pressures in business today.  Through their personal stories, they share honestly how they have dealt with success that did not bring fulfilment, of failure that became the launch-pad for a new and purposeful life.

Married couples whose marriages were healed, addictions were overcome, business problems resolved, all through an encounter with a life transforming God, at one of FGBMFI meetings.

FGBMFI is the purpose and focus of the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship International.  What began following a vision given to Demos Shakarian, a business man - dairy farmer, has now spread to 160 nations in every continent in the world, including South West. The life changing story about FGBMFI is told in the book "The Happiest People On Earth".


Through our FGBMFI meetings in South West we aim to:

  • Reach men in all nations for Jesus Christ
  • To reveal the power of Christ to men
  • Offer Christian Fellowship with FGBMFI and mentoring for men in South West
  • Bring greater unity to the Christian Church worldwide through FGBMFI
  • Equip men to fulfill the Great Commission
  • FGBMFI in South West would like to meet you
  • To help women become the people God made them to be, one flesh with the husbands, with Christ at the centre of the marriage

Ladies of FGBMFI

Richard & Vangie ShakarianTraditionally, membership The FGBMFI's women's section, 'LADIES OF THE FELLOWSHIP', has been confined to the wives and daughters of members of FGBMFI in the UK & Ireland.  However, many faithful ladies have been regular supporters of the meetings and ministry of FGBMFI, without whose input many chapters would not now exist.

The primary ministry of Ladies of the Fellowship within FGB has been to:

* support and encourage the men of the Fellowship FGBMFI

* to regularly meet and pray for the effective work of their local Chapter, regionally and nationally  

* encourage women to bring their husbands and men into the Fellowship

* be involved in ministry alongside their husbands and the men of FGB at open (men & women) FGB events

In addition, to supporting the men at open FGB events, The Ladies of the Fellowship hold other women's events: coffee mornings or evenings, regional and national events for prayer, fellowship, sharing testimonies, teaching and developing ministries to women; all with the backing and approval of the Officers of the relevant local Chapter of FGB, Regional Council or National Council, as appropriate.

As the Ladies of the Fellowship grows and develops, the over-riding aim is to lift Jesus Christ higher and give glory to Him

We are given many challenges in the course of our lives. Each situation becomes an opportunity, designed by God, for us to grow in our faith and to reach out to those who do not know the Lord. When women teach women, they encourage each other. We find rare treasures as, together, we learn how wonderful and right our God is, and how much He loves and cares for us. Please join us as we love, learn, and lean on the Lord, seek to reap the harvest that is ready, and fully support FGB's vision from God for reaching men and women for Christ.

Ladies of the Fellowship Structure

Membership requests should be endorsed by the Local FGB Chapter and submitted to the FGB National Office. There is no set membership fee, but there are ongoing administrative costs, so donations are welcomed.
A membership pin is given to each new member of the Ladies of the Fellowship upon joining.
A register of members is kept by the National Office and the leader of any local Women of the Fellowship group should be: the wife of an FGBMFI member, approved by the officers of the local Chapter of FGBMFI, registered with the Fellowship and notified to the FGB National Office as the appointed leader

Men Only? Women Only?

The answer to this issue lies in the specific focus of Demos 's vision, which was to reach MEN for Christ when at the time it was mostly only faithful women who filled the pews in churches (as they still do in some churches even today).  Demos was sad that men hadn't heard the 'Good News'.  It is a widely accepted fact that most men prefer to be prayed for by other men and this being so, men only meetings should be encouraged as appropriate.  Similarly, women often respond better to a women minister and therefore also need their own separate, same sex meetings.

Men Only

For too long  however too many members have had the wrong kind of 'men only' approach to FGB which has at times constituted an offence to some women for which the leadership of FGB humbly apologise.  FGB does want to recognise faithful  ladies of the fellowship and to respond to the Holy Spirit initiatives they may receive, so we do sincerely urge you to please use the enquiry form to submit your suggestions to the leadership team.

Husband & Wife

The bible talks of husband and wife becoming 'one flesh' when they join together in Holy matrimony, therefore in God's eyes there is neither man nor women but 'mankind', two people acting as one.   Besides functioning as joint marital ministry, very many husband and wife teams also have individual ministries which fit each other's like a hand in a glove. 

Single Women

An anomaly has however arisen, whenever an unmarried, Holy Spirit led woman has felt called to support the vital work of FGBMFI in these end times (and may have being doing so consistently stalwartly for some time). Therefore, we are  now inviting and encouraging  such women to  seek membership of ' Ladies of the Fellowship '  in their own right, so they may now participate officially and do so fully with the exception of local group leadership positions, which remain confined to those who have FGBMFI husbands.
