Freedom in Christ is expanding in Africa and around the world!  We currently have official representatives in Ethiopia, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe.   Kenya is in the process of being launched.  Our core discipleship tool, The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course, is a video series developed in the U.K. and is being translated into languages as funds are made available.  For example, it was recently translated into Kiswahili and final edits are is in the process of being done.

The core teaching of Freedom in Christ is biblical teaching and understanding our identity in Christ, how to grow in Christ, and how to disciple others.  These truths are based on the Bible and the core writings of Dr. Neil T. Anderson, the founder of FIC.  Dr. Anderson has written over 45 books, the most prominent being Victory Over the Darkness and The Bondage Breaker.  Steve Goss, Freedom in Christ International’s Executive Director put together The Freedom in Christ Discipleship Course, which is being used by over 3000 churches in the UK.

Dr. Howard and Aileen Ostendorff became the Africa Director for Freedom in Christ in early 2014 and then  moved to Nairobi in October 2014.  The Ostendorffs spent 16 years in Kenya in the 1980’s and 1990’s and are excited for what God will do in developing leaders for the rest of the continent.  They served on the staff of CRU (Campus Crusade for Christ) for 38 years before joining FIC.

FICM International believes that the long-term success of this ministry depends on indigenous support. Therefore FICM Int’l does not plan to hire staff or leaders but will ask leaders to volunteer their time or find their own financial support within their country or elsewhere.  When a national leader is found, his goal will be to build a local team, including prayer and financial partners, so together they can train church leaders to use these truths and tools to equip disciples to make disciples.  Numerous individuals are expressing interest in representing FIC in Africa.  Anyone interested may contact Dr. Ostendorff at  To contact our current representatives in Ethiopia, Liberia, South Africa, Uganda, and Zimbabwe please see their pages either at or on this website.

Other portions of this website are under construction.  Meanwhile, more information can be found at  (Resources and information on our U.S. Ministry) or (information on the global ministry of FICM)
