Friends Forever Ministry Trips to the greater Montego Bay area are to public schools, child care homes, communities, and through churches during Vacation Bible School outreach. These outreach and relief trips are who we are, but they are separate financially, and are not used as a fundraising source for the ministry. The cost expense for week trips and internship covers: round trip air travel; housing; meals; and ground transportation while "on site" for ministry.
An independent, five-member Board of Directors directs and guides the work of this ministry, registered in the state of North Carolina as a non-profit religious educational 501(c)3 organization. The leadership responds directly to the Board of Directors. Two of the Board members, Laurie Muirhead/Treasurer, and David A. Sutphin/Secretary have served the ministry from its inception. Additionally Tom Whidden/Vice-President (since 2007) and Kenneth Johnson (since 2000) serve this ministry leadership team. Our diverse group represents different church affiliations: Rhema Bible Church; Evangel Fellowship International; Oral Roberts Ministries Ministerial Alliance; and the Assemblies of God.
In the USA, Friends Forever has sponsoredThe Gathering Missions Weekend (2005 to 2010) for leaders and young people.
Additionally, Mark Muirhead is available for speaking ministry for churches and organizations. During the last six years he has traveled across the United States, Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana, South America. Please inquire about the "Leadership Weekends" where he spends time to motivate leaders and workers to be better at their people skills by the power of the Holy Spirit.
There is also a Board of Directores (information on 'Our Team') and Board of Reference of five business people who recommend this ministry. Additionally we have two Honorary Board of Directors: Mrs. Rev. E. Cookman of Dunn, North Carolina; and Rev. Thomas E. Pace, former Pastor of the Grace Fellowship Church, Kalamazoo, Michigan.
More information is available online concerning our former Vice-President Charles H. Cookman. We have posted his Memorial Service, pictures and other information online. He served twelve years from 1995 to 2007. His final statement in the last Board Meeting (2006) he attended, after reviewing the Montego Bay Channel 93 report was, "...this will multiply..."
Although this organization is non-denominational and we agree our purpose is to go where there are open community doors, and work with many churches in the body of the Lord Jesus Christ, "...so that none should perish, but all have everlasting life..."
