Welcome to GODfest Ministries Inc. We are a team of passionate followers of God who come from different backgrounds, but have one thing in common - we are all radically changed by the love of Jesus. That is why our foundation is quite simple: We live in order to bring this love and power of Jesus in every nation to which God is calling us, and to give our lives to see how God will restore history for the better. Revelation 11:15 says: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.". This verse summarizes our heart's desire: We want to see how heaven touches the earth and human lives are changed in every nation.
Our focus is not on self-expression but rather His presence. So much that we want to freely show the world the authentic nature of God. We want to see how many Christians can be empowered, equipped and ready! To achieve this, we work together with different churches and Christian ministries. We are a service that serves God and his community - his body. Our desire is to see the church experienced, healthy and dynamically passionate to comply with its largest order.
We have a great passion for the Bible. We believe that the Bible is literally the Word of God, which leads us into a deeper, more intimate and experiential relationship with God. We believe in well-founded, Biblical teaching that encourages all Christians to know the Word of God and to align their beliefs to it.
As a ministry, we put on festivals across the nations of the earth that are designed for people to meet Jesus. We are there to facilitate change in the heart of man through prayer and worship meetings, outreaches into cities, and vision-casting for the future. We desire to see a more free world, safer for all people, full of love and peace, where God’s presence and joy is evident in daily life. We believe that more of God in a nation can only create cultural change for the better.
We are an equipping and releasing ministry that works to impart our heart and pass the fire onto others, that they may live boldly for Jesus and transform nations.
Finally, but certainly not least, our main goal is to win people to Jesus. We want to fulfill the Great Commission by preaching the gospel and demonstrating God’s goodness and power. We believe that being a witness should not just be left for the evangelists, but instead every Christian should be representing Jesus whenever and wherever they are as a lifestyle.
Awakening Europe, put on by GODfest, is honestly going to release a shaking throughout all over Europe. These guys carry such a strong, but practical evangelistic anointing. I believe these events are going to be life changing, not just for those who attend, but honestly shaking the entire continent of Europe.

"I believe Europe is beginning to experience the promised outpouring of God that will radically shape the way Europe and the world relate to Jesus. Godfest Ministries is in the right place, at the right time with the right vision to see Europe and the world impacted with the powerful message of God's love and passion. I see the ministry as a major partner with the kingdom of God in this great awakening."

We are standing with them and supporting them in every way as they move forward to Gather, Train, Equip, (Mobilize) and Celebrate the Kingdom Identity with the New Generation. God is releasing new fresh ministries at this time that will build on the Foundations that have been laid, and with NEW HOPE AND STRENGTH bring Transformation to many lives and even cities and nations! Love will triumph through this new and fresh ministry! "

" We did a crusade here in the Philippines in 2012 with Ben Fitzgerald and the team. There was an outpouring of miracles and healings in these events and most importantly many people turned to Jesus. I highly recommend them as a ministry."
