The FGGF was established in January 2012, during the first Global Leadership Prayer Summit, organised by a small Steering Committee of men from like-minded organisations around the world, who were led clearly by the Lord to put this event on, and chose London as a globally central venue. At this initial gathering of FGB and BMF leaders, representing twenty nations in six key world regions, a unity of Spirit and vision was experienced and a need was recognised for an information network: a Global Forum. The FGGF is a response to a call for FGB/BMF leaders in nations to further fellowship, network, and move forward together in greater unity and harmony, providing mutual encouragement and support in co-ordinating and fulfilling the global God-given vision as given to Demos Shakarian.
The FGGF does not exercise any spiritual or organisational authority over national ministries. National organisations that are associated with the FGGF are not linked to any central global oversight. The national ministries join in fellowship with leaders who are furthering the same Vision and Mission for the extension of the kingdom of God, regardless of name or affiliation, while maintaining their respective organisation’s identity and integrity.
The purpose of the Full Gospel Global Forum (FGGF) is to provide an information hub for the sharing of news and event details from participating organisations from around the globe: like minded FGB (Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship) and BMF (Business Men’s Fellowship) groups throughout the world: ‘Closely knit together, but loosely associated’ .
A main aim of the FGGF is to provide a platform for networking, mutual support, encouragement and co-operation on common projects both nationally and globally.
