The Dunamis Fellowship International (DFI) is a membership organization of Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International.
The DFI is focused on mobilizing, equipping and deploying Holy Spirit-empowered witnesses for participation in the worldwide movement of the Holy Spirit that is advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and extending the Kingdom of God.
The DFI is a fellowship
The DFI connects members from all over the world. The DFI provides fellowship, accountability and prayer connections of people who have completed some or all of the Dunamis Project. It is a Spiritual Fellowship of people who have been born again and are focused on the fulfillment of a common vision, committed to following Jesus Christ and have been baptized with the Holy Spirit.
We gather once a year at our annual international meeting to:
- renew our friendships with each other
- do the work of prayer
- listen to the Holy Spirit for guidance.
- report on what God is doing through the DFI
- providing ministry for one another as we are often battle-weary
- discern how God may be calling us to develop programs
- discern how to respond to opportunities in the future
The Dunamis Fellowship International (DFI) is a unique combination of
- a missionary society,
- a seminary faculty, and
- an intentional prayer community.
This enables us to meet the challenges of working for renewal and advancing the Gospel in the world today.
1. It is a missionary society.
The DFI is a group of people are committed to the vision of fulfilling the Great Commission.
Members of the society teach, preach, and witness to the gospel throughout the world.
Our primary method of engagement in missions is through short-term teaching mission trips that equip national leaders for participation in the worldwide movement of the Holy Spirit for the advancement of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
2. It is a seminary
Individuals are equipped for ministry through anointed teachers who present the biblical and theological foundations of ministry.
This equipping aspect of the Dunamis Fellowship International’s calling is expressed through the Dunamis Institute.
3. It is an intentional prayer community.
The life and work of the Dunamis Fellowship is grounded in prayer. Through prayer we grow in intimacy with God, receive anointing for ministry, and open doors for advancing the gospel.
The Dunamis Fellowship International is the spiritual home of people who are growing in the ministry of PRMI.
This aspect of the DF is expressed through prayer networks around the world and at the Community of the Cross: A Place of Encounter with Jesus Christ for Prayer, Equipping and Sending (which is located on 24 lovely mountain acres in Black Mountain, North Carolina, USA).
The Rev Cindy Strickler is the Director of the Dunamis Fellowship International.
She is co-founder of the Fellowship with the Rev. Dr. Brad Long.
Cindy has served on the PRMI Board of Directors, and left the post of President of the Board in order to provide the leadership needed for the founding of the Fellowship.
