The first month of 2024 was celebrated with joy and togetherness in IFGF churches across Indonesia. Birthday celebrations, board member inaugurations, and inspirational leadership meetings brought a colorful, unified, and encouragement for all congregants. Each event became a moment to strengthen bonds, inspire one another, and reaffirm commitment to live out the calling together as followers of Christ.


IFGF Langgur, a church located in Southeast Maluku Regency, Maluku Province, Indonesia, consistently creates special moments for its congregation, one of which is regularly celebrating the birthdays of its members. On January 14, 2024, the IFGF Langgur team, including the Pastor, Secretary, Financial Manager, and the leader of the Kids department, visited the home of one faithful member, Delvira Katerina Rangotwat, to celebrate her eleventh birthday. The visit was filled with warmth and heartfelt gratitude.


A significant and blessed moment arrived for the congregation of IFGF Tobelo. On the third Sunday of January, the church located in North Halmahera Regency, North Maluku Province, held the inauguration ceremony for the Church Board of IFGF Tobelo 2024. In an atmosphere of joy and enthusiasm, congregants united in prayer and blessed the eight Church Board members during the ceremony.


IFGF Jakarta held a meeting with the theme “Alive in Calling” for leaders and volunteers who had been serving together at IFGF Jakarta and various centers (Sarbini, Karawaci, Bogor, Bekasi, Cilincing, Perumnas). This gathering of leaders and volunteers, often referred to as City Team Gathering (CTG) or Leaders Gathering, was held on Saturday, January 27, 2024. Around 300 leaders from all centers in the Jabodetabek (Jakarta, Bogor, Depok, Tangerang, and Bekasi) gathered at Balai Sarbini, Jakarta.

During this occasion, Ps. Jimmy Oentoro, as the Senior Pastor of IFGF Jakarta, equipped every leader to live out the calling from God by focusing on the following three aspects:

1. Building Momentum – Time

A strong congregation in prayer, praise, and serving others (Pray, Praise, People).

2. Mobilization – Togetherness

Momentum can be sustained if the masses continue to mobilize together, progressively and consistently with the Icare pathway.

3. Movement – Transformation

Becoming strong implementers of His word, individuals who walk with God, grow to be more like Him, and have the willingness to do what God desires.

After the vision casting by Ps. Jimmy, every volunteer enthusiastically delved into focused meetings within their ministry departments to discuss the agenda for 2024.

The following day, January 28, 2024, IFGF Jakarta held Vision Sunday at two different locations, Balai Sarbini Jakarta and Dome Harvest Karawaci. Attended by around 1500 congregants, the event aimed to convey the church’s vision with the theme “Alive in Calling” by Ps. Jimmy Oentoro. Congregants felt greatly blessed and encouraged to collectively build momentum, maintain unity with one another, and live out God’s word to become more like Christ.
