Bishop Roger Christopher, i.f.i. Presiding Bishop

When it comes to the Word of God, Bishop Christopher is one of God’s unmistakable giants.
Studying the word of God does not mean looking over a few scripture just to get a sound-good sermon that will prove someone’s one-sided point. It means that we should patiently & diligently read for understanding, reference with carefulness and thoroughly seek direction from the Holy Spirit.

It would be an understatement to say that he has a deep abiding love for the independent houses of God that are strewn throughout the world, and he takes great pride in bringing together those who love unity.

Bishop Christopher was given a divine directive to establish i.f.i. (Independents Fellowship International), a movement that offers thousands of independent churches and ministers an opportunity to identify with something and celebrate strength & unity among themselves that has not been tapped into until now.

Over the past 35 years Bishop Christopher has taught, trained, nurtured and ordained a vast number of ministers and equipped them to go into the highways and hedges to do the work of the kingdom.

Bishop is ready, willing, and able to be the “tie that binds.”

“I see hope about the size of a man’s hand, and surely that must be the sound of an abundance of rain for Independents Fellowship International."  Bishop Roger Christopher

Rev. Dr. Laura B. Christopher, Women Department Leader
W.i.f.i.  (Women of Independents Fellowship International)

Together with her husband of 47 years, and 51 years of personal ministry, Dr. Laura is well able to be a co-founding succourer for i.f.i. 

More than 36 years ago, when she came to a certain area, NO pastor would allow women in the pulpit or even recognize God's call on their lives. But she persevered and continued to preach the life-giving Word of God in spite of the horrid, crushing insults, loneliness, and ostracization.  They soon saw that she had a powerful anointing, a notable teaching ability and extensive scriptural knowledge. 

Because of that, and because of the Lord's heavenly enlightenment, 95% of pastors in that area, along with others across our nation, now either recognize or have women associate ministers on their staff.

There is absolutely no area of ministry in which she has not successfully worked.  “Get a good positional grip and hold on” she said.  Greatness is calling this independent Christian organization and it is headed for glorious success in its mission.  It WILL happen - sooner, rather than later.
