IMI Ordained Ministers in 2016 & January with Renewal Reminder

Grace and peace unto all of you through God our Father and our LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ,

The next calendar year (in our Gregorian calendar, anyway) is well underway.  I used to publish regular updates of the newly ordained IMI ministers.  It has been such a long time since I have done so, that I will post here all of them that have been ordained in the past year, from February 2016 – January 2017.

Joni Bennett of Sioux City, Iowa

Dr. Hughes Waka Waka of Cameroon

Jesse Christofferson of Waukesha, Wisconsin

Crystal Ortiz, also of Waukesha, Wisconsin

Susan Roux Seep of Cazenovia, Wisconsin

Esther “Cecilia” Sam-Jackson of Marshfield, Wisconsin

Michael Bowen of Amery, Wisconsin

Brian Gray & Cathy Gray of Lihue, Hawaii

Don Eagan of Marysville, Washington

Jason Lundmark & (later) Amy Lundmark of Martinton, Illinois

David Fox of Shawnee, Kansas

Melody Benande of Waukesha, Wisconsin

Brad Strickland & Amy Strickland of Fort Dodge, Iowa

Dale Eickhoff of (? – I’ll have to check, can’t seem to find hometown now)

Calvin Farmer of Pipestone, MN

One more that I just reviewed will be added to the list shortly.

Please help me in welcoming these brothers and sisters and fellowlaborers in the gospel.  May the King of kings grant them grace and empower them to represent Him well to all around them.


I wish to add a reminder that, if you have not already done so, renewal of IMI for all ministers is up.  Please send renewal information and annual amount to PO Box 102, Lonsdale, MN 55046.


Also, to anyone in Wisconsin (or nearby states and willing to travel a little), IMI will be having a ministers’ conference at New Life Assembly of God in Reedsburg, WI on Saturday, February 4.  Come gather together with other IMI ministers in the area and hear what is on their hearts and happening in their lives.


May the love of God be so undeniably established in your hearts that you show forth His love with all confidence in everything you do.

2015 International Conference, August 6-8 in West Union, Iowa

Grace and peace to all of you,

This is a reminder that the 2015 international conference for Impact Ministries International will be held at the resort cabin at 14975 Nature Road, outside of West Union, Iowa, beginning the afternoon of Thursday, August 6 and continuing until the afternoon of Saturday, August 8.  There is no cost to attend or to lodge at the cabin, although there will be a charge for meals served there, and, of course, an offering for orphans will be taken each day.

For any of you who have not been to one of the conferences at the cabin, it is a beautiful resort cabin and grounds.  The conference will feature preaching, teaching, and ministry from several of the IMI ministers throughout all 3 of the days.  This is the largest conference of each year, and ministers from around the globe attend and share their passions and the work our Father has them doing. The connections and fellowship of the Body of Christ are invaluable.  I encourage you to come for as much of the conference as you are able to make.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Be blessed and a blessing,

– Pastor Matthew Goers –

IMI Regional Director for MN

Newly Ordained IMI Ministers & Real Men’s Conference Last Weekend

Grace and peace to all of you.

I would like to have you welcome with me the latest additions to the IMI Ministerial family.

William “Butch” McKeen of Ankeny, Iowa

Johnne Bump of my hometown Randolph, Wisconsin.  (Which is amazing.  Randolph is a village of about 1600 people in south central Wisconsin.  That two different people who did not know each other are IMI ministers from Randolph is incredible to me.)

Welcome to the family of IMI ministers.

Also, on the IMI Ministers Facebook page, there is a link to pictures of the Real Men’s Conference, hosted by John Roberts and his ministry last weekend.  A wonderful time (although cut a little shorter than expected).

– Pastor Matt –

Rev. Elaine Averill holds Faith-Based EAP based Leadership training with Erl & Christy Morrell-Stinson

Your first visit to Unbridled Faith Farm in Blanchardville, Wisconsin will have you holding your breath at the stunning glory of high rolling hills, forests, rivers and streams. And that’s before you walk into the first class horse stables, indoor arena, spacious training center, bunk house, “family room” and kitchen — all overlooking the entire Blanchardville region from one of the highest hills in the area.

Next you are greeted by the barn manager and other staff working hard to keep everything in order and on track.

Two adorable mini horses Itsy and Bisty play among the full size mares Charlie and Legacy, typically in the big grassy pasture outside.

By now you’ve probably got a cup of tea or coffee, and you sit down in the nicely decorated training center, for the opening of the seminar you came for. You’re learning about Faith-Based Equine Assisted Philosophy, and you’re in for a personal breakthrough or two before the weekend is out.

Soon you enter the arena with 10-12 or more other people in quiet wonder as you walk through a simple exercise that provides you with profound insights about yourself, about human nature, about truth and honesty, and about your relationship with God’s Holy Spirit.

You’ll be stretched in new ways, and you’ll build deep relationships with the other people you’re working with. You’ll learn a lot about team work, communication, your own leadership style, and your authenticity. The horses will react to you in complete honesty and unconditional love, helping you see yourself in a gentle and transparent way. You’ll experience unexpected healing and joy.

That was the case again this past weekend as Rev. Elaine Averill (ordained minister with IMI) presented the first in the Leadership Series Stable Guide for Faith-Based EAP, “Building Stellar Influence”, along with special guest facilitators, Erl & Christy Morrell-Stinson, also ordained ministers with IMI. With a dozen people in attendance, it was a powerful time in the Lord, further blessed by Loren Loving who led us in worship and prayer, and Jane Baker who provided wellness training and delicious + nutritious meals throughout the weekend.

The next  in the Leadership Series seminars is coming up June 15th: learn more here:
