Christ For The Nations Institute was founded by Gordon Lindsay and his wife, Freda in 1970. Gordon was a multifaceted, apostolic leader with a mandate to teach, model and promote the gospel of God’s kingdom. There has never been a deviation from the mission that CFNI was founded upon: to bring Christ to the world and the world to Christ.

Throughout the years, CFNI has consistently supported the nation of Israel, released annual faith-filled anthems of praise and worship and sent out international missions teams in boldness and power. CFNI will continue to reach the nations through music, missions, outreaches and prayer. The past 50 years of ministry have been a testimony of God’s faithfulness to His children, His church and His mission.

Christ For The Nations Institute was established in 1970 by founders Gordon and Freda Lindsay under the premise that they would not form another Bible school, but training grounds for Christians to develop practical, ministerial skills and Godly character. The reason CFNI exists is to train world changers. Students attend this Institute from all across the world to be trained to live out their God-given calling with boldness and power wherever He may send them. CFNI offers students opportunities to engage in classes and events centered around evangelism, media, preaching, worship, and more. Graduates of CFNI will know the Word of God, have a consistent prayer life and possess practical skills that will enable them to effectively communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ in any environment.
