What is SFC
Sheaves for Christ is the fundraising ministry of the General Youth Division of the United Pentecostal Church International. Since its inception in 1952, over $103 million has been raised to fund missions and ministries around the world.
The General Youth Division is proud to sponsor two levels of quizzing—the Intermediate Division is open to 12-14 year-olds, and the Experienced Division involves 15-18 year-olds. In addition to this, the Youth Division produces several quizzing resources that assist teams in preparing for competitions on the district and national level.

Campus Ministry International
CMI was formed to enable and encourage local churches to effectively reach out to the college and university populations in their vicinities with the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is done by a variety of means—including motivating districts and churches to establish and maintain campus evangelism; providing materials and training to aid in the formation of these campus ministries; acting as a clearinghouse for the gathering and distribution of new information, ideas, and materials; and establishing communication and cooperation between campus ministries in our fellowship.
