The Northeast Fellowship (NFIBC) believes that God has given us the greatest CAUSE in the world: CHRIST’S CHURCH, His Body (Ephesians 5:25). As society increasingly views the local church as “non-essential”, we see great opportunities to strengthen and encourage the church of today and its leaders.
As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, the NFIBC relies on the faithful provision of God through individuals and churches who support it through their faithful prayers and financial support.

SERVING CHURCHES AND PASTORS
Under the leadership of Brian King (Executive Director), Jim Vogel (Associate Director), and the Network Leadership Team, we make it our goal to be of service all year long in the following ways:
~ ENCOURAGING pastors, their wives and their churches as they face both common and unprecedented challenges in carrying out their ministries
~ REVITALIZING struggling churches by providing strategies and support in tough times, including some pulpit supply
~ TRAINING church leaders to serve well
~ SHINING a light in dark places throughout the Northeast USA region and online.
~ HOSTING conferences and events for men, women, married couples, and teens that supplement the discipleship programs of local churches
~ PROVIDING travel opportunities and fellowship through NF Bus Trips
SCHOOL OF THEOLOGY AND MINISTRY (www.northeaststm.org):
In response to the need for more trained pastors, the NF now provides COMPLETE PASTORAL TRAINING (launching Spring, 2021). Men can receive formal training for ministry from credible staff with advanced degrees and ministry experience in a convenient hybrid model, learning online and in-person at an affordable cost, allowing them to potentially graduate debt-free and enter ministry quickly.
Additionally, Brian King and Jim Vogel serve as PASTORS to PASTORS, providing a listening ear and counsel at any time. They speak in as many as 100 churches throughout the year, and also assist churches who are between pastors with pastoral search help and pulpit supply.
All of this is accomplished with a modest operating budget of only $133,125 (2020-21 fiscal year). We rely on God’s provision of financial support from churches, individuals, event registrations and speaking honorariums.
With Covid-related restrictions affecting many events in 2020, the budgeted revenue was significantly lower, as it was for many non-profit organizations. Yet we continued to minister in new ways, still connecting with many churches online and in person – both within and outside the Network. For this we praise God.

2 Corinthians 9:10-11 “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God.”
