Why Give?

Good news! The church is growing significantly outside of the West, especially in Africa and Asia. The challenge is that there is a dearth of adequately trained and mentored pastors to serve the growing numbers of Christians. Many pastors have only a third grade education in Africa, and work in the midst of poverty and persecution in many places in Asia. Often pastors are not paid salaries, do not have many books or other written resources, and have never been trained in leadership practices or church management.


Faith, Hope and Love Global Ministries (FHLGM) was formed to help address this critical need for theological training and leadership development in developing countries. The founders, Tim and Jill Geoffrion, created FHLGM by drawing on 25 years of practical experience in the pastorate, seminary teaching, and nonprofit organizational leadership. Their expertise is also based on their academic education. Both Tim and Jill completed their Masters of Divinity degrees at Princeton Theological Seminary in Princeton, New Jersey. Tim completed his Th.M. and Ph.D. at the Lutheran School of Theology in Chicago, Illinois and Jill completed her Ph.D. at The Union Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio.


On February 5, 2008, FHLGM was incorporated as a Minnesota nonprofit organization, and received tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status from the IRS. As an established nonprofit, FHLGM now serves as a vehicle for individuals and churches to participate in training and ministry to pastors and Christian leaders on four different continents, through contributions, prayer, and volunteering.
