About Us

The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries

The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries (TFAM) is a multi-denominational group of primarily African American Christian leaders and laity representing churches and faith-based organizations from across the globe. These churches range from ultra-conservative backgrounds to more liberal, independent churches; from startup, developing to very large, established churches and from churches that are economically challenged to the very affluent.

Purpose

To support religious leaders and laity in moving toward a theology of radical inclusivity, which by its very nature requires an equally radical social ministry reaching to the furthest margins of society to serve all in need without prejudice or discrimination.

Mission

To create, sustain and celebrate community on the margin by offering a space of radical hospitality, where the stranger can enter and become a friend.

What We Do

  • Develop safe spaces for personal authenticity and open, honest exchange
  • Assist in the adoption of a more inclusive theology
  • Create networks of collaborative support and practical guidance, preventing isolation and lossfor churches and leaders who are becoming more radically inclusive.
