The ICF Movement
I believe that the local church is the hope of the world. Bill Hybles
I believe if we tell the story of what God has done,
the present is seen in the right light and the future looks bright.
The International Christian Fellowship started as a local church 15 years ago (1996).
The only goal was to reach the young generation in Zurich,
Switzerland in a very relevant and attractive way.
The church grew over 1500 people in the first 4 years.
We never wanted to plant other churches. But what started as a local church became a church planting movement. We helped to plant over 40 churches in Europe.
In 2010 we launched 4 new churches in 4 different countries:
- Vorarlberg, Austria
- Augsburg, Germany
- Salamanca, Spain
- Leiden, Holland
Also in 2010, 3 existing ICF churches went multi-site and launched a new locations
- Lucerne, Switzerland
- Biel, Switzerland
- Friedrichsrain, Germany
The ICF Movement has grown to over 880 people in 2010.
All ICF churches have close to 9000 visitors in over 60 weekend celebrations in 7 European countries now: Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Spain, Netherlands. Albania.
What started as a local church has become a sign of hope and a fresh breath for church planting in Europe.
