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 53 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 have some of Rodney's Books  in PDF format that can be freely downloaded (see Resources)

God Bless YOU!

Prayer Support Letter 

December 2016

Another very busy year in the service of the Lord Jesus is drawing to a close. We have so much to praise and thank God for; for all that He is doing through this Ministry and touching multiplied thousands of lives through its various departments. We are very grateful to God for the faithful volunteer workers who all help to make this possible ~ and a blessing in so many lives around the world. A very special “THANK YOU” to all who are supporting The GFM Ministry through prayers and giving.

At this season of the year Christians are reminded of the birth of Jesus Christ, Who came into this world to be the Saviour of mankind, to deliver us from the power of sin and to give us “life and life more abundantly” (John 10:10 ). The angel of God said, "I announce to you good news, a great joy which shall be to all the people" . . . "to preach the Good News" (Luke 2:8-20 ). Good News is for everybody! What was the Good News? God had sent the Saviour to meet man's greatest need. It is a message of peace to a world that is experiencing so much trouble. When the message of Jesus Christ is a living reality in our hearts and lives we can:

  • Proclaim the Saviour! 

  • Sing God's praises!Spread the news ~ as the shepherds did!

  • Ponder this miracle of love ~ as Mary did! Go and do good to others!

  • Come and worship God manifest in the flesh, and be filled with His light and sweetness by the power of the Holy Spirit!

Do not be afraid. Jesus came into this world to deliver us from all our fears. His great love in our hearts conquers fear. No one can do for us what Jesus can do! He is the Answer to our every need! Fear is from the enemy. And the enemy is trying to silence the voice of Christianity today through that fear. But, Love is of God, and God’s love is greater than all the devil’s fear tactics! Hallelujah!  This is Good news of great joy! And we all need to experience it for ourselves! When we are walking and living in the truth of God’s Good News we have a joy that causes us to overcome all the obstacles that we face in life. “The joy (“rejoicing: gladness; joy”) of the Lord is our strength (“a fortified place, a defence: force, fortress, rock, strength”) the Scripture declares (Nehemiah 8:10 )!

  • We pray God’s richest blessings on you all as you go through this Christmas Season, and that we all will be shining lights in a world of darkness, letting the love of Jesus flow out of our lives in such a way that others will want to know and follow Jesus too!

  • We are very privileged to know Jesus in reality today. Be encouraged to remain true and faithful to Him and His purposes for your life.  ~ Rodney and Jean Francis, and The GFM Team.


Rodney and Dave (Hepworth) joined us for Home Group in Stokes Valley, NZ, on Monday 21st November.  We had two sisters who, between them, have 10 children from the ages of 5–18 years.  We also had our brother and his daughter, a friend of the family as well as Richard and I (Sarah).  So there were a few people and we were all hungry for more of God! These children love the Lord and were hungry for more of Him.  We have prayed they would experience the Holy Spirit more in their lives.  Rodney shared his testimony, which the Lord used to help people open up.  He asked if everyone could speak in tongues with only a couple of the children nodding.  Rodney got everyone to hold hands, close their eyes and together we all started to speak in tongues. The children were wonderful having full faith to just give it a go! They were looking at each other speaking in tongues with big smiles as the Holy Spirit moved. Rodney had words of prophecy for people and they were just so encouraged.  Prayer time was awesome as the children were praying in tongues and praying for anyone who sat on the ‘hot chair’ in the middle of the room! God is so good! It was wonderful to see the Lord move on the teenagers who were there for the first time. They prayed in tongues and prayed for their siblings, as well as put their hands up first to give their emails to Rodney for more information on the ministry.  They were so excited to start working on the ‘Bible Basics' exercises next week!! God, You are so amazing! Thank you Rodney and Dave for sharing your time and heart with everyone at home group! We look forward to your next visit! ~ Richard and Sarah Te Tau (Leaders, Lower Hutt, NZ).
