WELCOME to the Website of The Gospel Faith Messenger Ministry.
May you be inspired, encouraged and challenged by what you read.
The GFM Ministry has been in operation for 49 years and continues to grow in its spiritual influence in many countries of the world. Our Message is simple: JESUS CHRIST IS ALIVE TODAY to meet your every need through the power of the Holy Spirit! He is only a sincere prayer away! Reach out to Him and find in Him the real answers you need for your daily living.
The GFM Ministry is focused on releasing the Holy Spirit Ministry through the five-fold ministry gifts (Ephesians 4:11-16 ) and the nine Spiritual Gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11 ), Gospel literature through books, booklets, manuals, Gospel Tracts, 3 Bible Correspondence Courses (free), Prophetic Conferences, Schools, and Church Meetings.
Living for, and Serving Jesus is very exciting indeed, and we invite you to seek Him while He may be found. The best is yet to come for those who will believe the promises of God!
We now have some of Rodney's Books in PDF format that can be freely downloaded (see Resources)
God Bless YOU!

Prayer Support Letter
Another year is coming to a close. It has been a very busy year for us as the Ministry has continued to grow and impact more and more lives. At this time of the year we often ask ourselves if we have accomplished that which we would have liked to? I guess all of us feel we would have liked to have accomplished more than we have. Rather than bemoan what we have not done, let us rejoice in what we have done, and also look to Jesus to enable us to do what He has called us to do. If there are adjustments to be made, then let us be big enough – and bold enough – to make those changes so that we can be more effective in 2014 than ever before. The fact is that time is short, the hour is urgent, and we Christians have a huge responsibility to fulfil the purposes of God in the here and now. May you all have a very God-blessed Christmas Season ~ Rodney W. Francis.
Masterton Baptist Church, NZ:(17th November, 2013):"Thank you for the way you spoke in both meetings. I have had such good reports from people about how they were blessed and how much they enjoyed what you had to say. I believe there was a real anointing on what was said and a breakthrough in the lives of a number of people. Particularly in the afternoon service there was a real sense of the presence of God moving in a powerful way amongst His people. I believe we will see healings and I believe we will see breakthroughs in the prophetic among a number of our people who are in, or will be in, leadership roles. Please make sure you come back next year. We are really keen to host another GFM Ministry day in 2014. Every blessing” ~ Pastor Scott Lelievre (Masterton, NZ).
The GFM Prophetic Equipping Day, Paraparaumu, NZ: (23rd November, 2013): 'Set Apart For God' was the theme of The GFM Day held at St Paul's church in Paraparaumu. Ross Monk immediately had us engaging the spirit realm with the gift of tongues and the interpretation of tongues. He made a call to us, that if we wanted to rise to another level in God, that we needed to 'dedicate, consecrate, sanctify' ourselves, just as Joshua had told the people of Israel to do before they crossed over the Jordan river and entered the promised land. All God wants is that we consecrate ourselves to Him, listen to Him and obey. Rodney asked us an extremely challenging question, "How different are you prepared to be for Jesus?" Those who accomplished things in the Word of God, and it is still the same today, are those who do different and vulnerable things, that the Lord has asked them to do. We need to be different; allowing God to use us in ways we've not been used to before. If we are prepared to be different, the Holy Spirit will lead us in great adventures. Various people were wonderfully ministered to by the Lord with Rodney's prophetic gifting. 'Our physical bodies have structure, but they are also made for great freedom!' was Malcom Milligan’s cry as he skipped around the room! It's all about God! He's supernatural, so creative and always doing something new! He related the story of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:9-10 , who had a name which meant 'he will cause pain' and how he had prayed to God, "Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!" and how God had granted his request. We are to be a blessing wherever God has placed us. We have every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. He exhorted us to pray in tongues as much as possible, and laugh, as laughter is opposite to the world. Let us look to Jesus and allow Him to unsettle our nests for the 'new' things He wants to do. The Holy Spirit ministered to many souls through Malcolm. Rodney then shared how the Lord had led him to change the message that he was going to bring, and to draw our attention to the parable of the sower in Mark 4:1-20 , from a different angle. 75% of the soil types in the parable did not bring forth a good crop because the soil was 'mixed' with other things, such as stones and thorns ~ beware of mixture! We need to 'separate ourselves' from those things that bring mixture into our lives and thus stop the good seed from bringing forth a crop. We are to be 'separated' soil. It takes a total commitment to following Jesus, on His terms not ours. The gathering was concluded by an amazing time of 'setting apart for God' for those who wanted to respond to the call. Rodney, Ross and Malcolm freely blessed and ministered to each person. Saturday 23rd November 2013 ~ the day of settling in my spirit, that I am 'set apart for God.' Hallelujah! A great day! Love ~ Lisa Moger (Paraparaumu, NZ).
