The Fellowship of International Churches, "FOIC", is an organization of churches founded by Bishop Wellington Boone. Bishop Boone's church planting ministry began in 1981 when he started a church in Ettrick, Virginia. Bishop Boone's ministry touched many area college students, and he founded New Generation Campus Ministries (NGM) in 1982 while continuing to pastor in Ettrick. In 1984 he moved the church from Ettrick to Richmond, and he founded Manna Christian Fellowship. By 1997 this para-church ministry had reached students at over 50 colleges and universities.
As various leaders were raised up through the local church and campus ministry, Bishop Boone began to commission certain elders to plant churches in different cities. In 1995, Bishop Boone released Manna Christian Fellowship of Richmond to Bishop Marvin Mason, and moved to Atlanta with a church planting team. He is now the senior pastor of The Father's House in Norcross, GA. Also in 1995, FOIC was founded to oversee the growing church-planting efforts and in 1998 already established churches were invited to join as well.
FOIC now has many associate and affiliate churches across the country. In 1999, the Presbytery of Bishops was ordained to oversee specific geographical regions and provide focused leadership, oversight and encouragement to FOIC churches. The bishops, under the leadership of Bishop Boone, continue to meet regularly to evaluate and expand the growing work of FOIC.
