General Overseer's  July Encouragement

To the Saints of the IFCA,


Greetings in the Mighty Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!


As most of you know, we are just weeks away from gathering for our National Convention in Syracuse, NY. Now although having some anxiety is only natural for an event like this, my heart is also filled with great excitement. In fact, to be honest with you, much of my excitement comes from what Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes 3:1,

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the

heaven.” 

Well let me encourage you, I believe that’s exactly what this year’s convention represents. It’s a new season for both the church and the IFCA.


Again, I don’t believe that anyone would disagree with me when I say that we have seen some major changes in our world and in our country over the last several years. Everything from Covid and the accusations of voter fraud, all the way down to the division and current cynicism is astonishing. But at the same time, may we never forget that “all things are working after the counsel of his will.” It actually

reminds me of the persecution that arose in the book of Acts that forced the early church to move beyond the comforts and confines of Jerusalem. But let’s not forget that it was also at this point, that the church launched out its tent stakes to experience the greatest influx of growth it had ever seen and I believe that’s the threshold upon which the church stands today.


So again, I want to encourage you. This is no time to sit back and take our ease.

It’s time to “Strengthen What Remains”

so that we can be a part of the greatest move of God since the inception of the church.


May God bless each of you richly! 


In His Service,

Bro. Rick George

IFCA General Overseer
