Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship in America is a nonprofit organization of Christian laymen from nearly every denominational background who are dedicated to reaching men with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Our mission is based on a vision that God gave to Demos Shakarian, founder of the International Fellowship, in 1952. In that vision, God took Demos around the world and showed him “millions and millions of men standing shoulder to shoulder.” Demos continued: “What I saw terrified me. The faces were set, lifeless, miserable. . . They stared straight ahead, unblinking, unseeing. With a shudder of horror I realized that they were dead. . . . .
Then the vision changed. . . . . Everywhere it was the same. Brown faces, black faces, white faces – every one rigid, wretched, every one locked in his own private death.” The men whom Demos saw in the vision were spiritually dead, they were without Jesus, they were lost. . . Then God spoke (through Rose Shakarian) “My son what you see next is going to happen soon.” Then Demos was moving around the earth a second time. “Below me again were millions upon millions of men. But what a difference! This time heads were raised. Eyes shone with joy. Hands were lifted towards heaven. These men who had been so isolated, each in his prison of self, were linked in a community of love and adoration. Asia. Africa. America – everywhere death had turned to life. And then the vision was over.” God gave the Fellowship – through Demos Shakarian – the mission to call men back to God!!
“The Vision Intensified”
The last publication produced by founder Demos Shakarian was “A new wave of revival – The Vision Intensified”. In it, God revealed to Demos the Fellowship in the Last Days:
God has shown me the future, and has revealed that “A new Wave of Revival” is about to EXPLODE within the body of Christ. The powerful miracle VISION God gave me for the Fellowship, and the world, is not over… IT HAS JUST BEGUN!
We haven’t seen anything yet! God’s VISION WILL INTENSIFY in an increasingly powerful wave of His Glory!
Today, we operate under God’s anointing which still rests upon the Fellowship. In Nevada, our focus is on the end time harvest of souls. To accomplish this, a “Partners of the Fellowship” program has been implemented which allows women to partner with us, so ALL can be reached for His Kingdom. In Nevada, our desire is to reach business men and women in the marketplace. In addition, the VISION in Nevada inspires us to impact all ethnicities, races, ages and genders by using various outreach techniques and venues!
