In addition to our international headquarters in Frisco, Texas, we currently have ministry offices in 10 countries, where our pastors translate resources, train church leaders to use Chuck’s Searching the Scriptures Bible-study methods, serve their communities, and pursue Vision 195 in their languages. When you join the IFLM family, you’ll become a part of a talented group of men and women uniquely gifted and called to help people around the world live with the life-changing power of God’s Word.
