| Who are we? The AMCF (Association of Military Christian Fellowships) is an
agreement by autonomous national military Christian fellowships to associate.
The vision of AMCF is to encourage the formation and growth of military Christian
fellowships (MCFs) within and among national security forces.1
The goal of the AMCF is that every country in the world have an MCF and that it
become mature and effective. The motto of the AMCF is "All one in Christ
Jesus" and that is what we pray and seek to be.
How has it developed?
Started in 1930 with four founder nations, AMCF has members today in the security forces of some 120 nations. About half of those nations have one or more established military Christian fellowships, and many have informal gatherings of military Christians who, for several important reasons, are not formally established.
How is it structured? Each military Christian fellowship is self-governing, taking its direction from the Lord and not from AMCF. AMCF’s presidential bench consists of a resident and 14 regional vice presidents. Their role is to encourage the national MCFS and, when helpful, coordinate regional activities (for example, for regional AMCF conferences and training seminars.)
1. Whenever the words "military"
and "armed forces" are used in this manual, the intent is to include
all branches of a nation's armed forces, defense forces, and where appropriate
law and order forces. In some nations it may also include fire fighting and other
national level institutions.
