In 1981 God called Jim Heath and his wife Ida, to take the Word of Faith to this nation. Jim took his young family and a team of workers to spread God’s Word throughout New Zealand.
The ministry grew, with five motor homes on the road and 15 workers, spending one week to two months in a town, visiting every home and holding meetings in local halls or in a marquee tent.
In 1984 Jim was appointed the founding president of ICFM. Jim and Ida founded and pastored three churches over 28 years in Timaru, Christchurch and Ashburton. Today Jim and Ida are itinerant ministers available to churches in New Zealand.
