Communal Mission Centers


Following the pattern of the earliest Christians, full-time TFI members maintained a cooperative lifestyle from the founding of the Family International in 1968 until 2010, which featured the sharing of material possessions, resources, and responsibilities. This economical and communal way of life served to enhance our members’ efforts and played an important part in the furtherance of our work and the development of mission works around the world.

While cooperative communities played an important role in the Family International’s history and development, in 2010 TFI discontinued its communal-based organizational model and reorganized as a Christian community networked principally online.
