Vision International Ministry Network

“A Fellowship of Ministers and Ministries.”

It is a joy to introduce Vision International Ministerial Network (VIMN) to you. VIMN is a gathering & networking of peers who serve together as an apostolic company. We are responding to the mission given to us by our Lord Jesus at His ascension, seeking to follow the pattern developed in the New Testament.  VIMN is convinced that if we return to the pattern of ministry introduced in the Book of Acts, we can anticipate the same results. Ministry teams in the Book of Acts were actively involved in expanding the borders of the Kingdom of God. Key functions of these teams included planting new churches and the replication of team ministry. Ministry teams were the key networking organism of the church and were regularly involved in the “care of the churches” (2 Corinthians 11:28).


VIMF seeks to be sensitive to the needs of the individuals we serve. VIMF was formed in a response to pastor’s and minis­ter’s need for community, for a place to identify and work with peers. We believe that the innate desire for community is met through covenantal relationships, not by merely joining an organization.


We believe that VIMN has been commissioned by God to network credentialed individuals to ministry of­fices. VIMN serves church leaders by recognizing, honoring and networking with men and women with like-minded ministry credentials, but does not provide for a form of legal covering, only relational networking for the Kingdom of God. VIMN recommends ministry license and ordination, if not yet obtained, from the ministerial fellowships listed below.

Church Planting

We take the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus seriously. It is our belief that the most effective way to evangelize the world is through planting churches.  We believe that we have been called by our Fa­ther to model a New Testament outreach that focuses on planting churches and partnering with indigenous leadership.
