Unto Full Stature Ministries (UFSM)

Unto Full Stature Ministries (UFSM) is the ministry arm of IFS. It affiliates with a few other ministries (pastors, teachers) to bring spiritual maturity to The Church, the Body of Christ . It does this through its website containing numerous teachings relating to maturity, leadership conferences in USA, India, Kenya, and Canada, bimonthly video conferencing and distribution of audio/video messages to church leaders, and free distribution of books and literature. “Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to maturity.” (Heb. 6:1)

Pala Liberty Foundation, Kenya

As an outgrowth of the ministry to Kenya, Immanuel Fellowship Shippensburg has partnered with the Pala Liberty Foundation Kenya (PLFK), serving as a platform to receive donations in support of the orphanage/school and sponsorship for orphans at the Joy Haugesund Schools International, Homa Bay, Kenya. The school/orphanage founder, Pastor Julius Midodo, also serves as overseer of 14 churches and is an elder in Unto Full Stature Ministries. He is zealous for bringing the message and vision of spiritual maturity to the Church in Kenya.
