The International Coalition of Fellowships (ICOF) is an association of independent full-gospel ministers and churches who have come together under a common banner to fulfill the Great Commission. We cooperate with local ministries in serving as a clergy registration bureau, as all applicants must be sponsored by a local church or fellowship before any credential is issued.
If you are a minister or have a calling upon your life and are looking for a fellowship that will allow you the freedom to minister as the Lord leads, as well as a network of fellow servants of like precious faith, then we invite you to make an inquiry toward membership.

Our Online and Distance learning programs
Our Programs start with Certificate-level degrees and then progress through Diploma-level awards and finally to full Degrees. Courses are offered in the comfort of the student’s home or office without setting foot on a physical campus! The tradition at ICOF is to provide our students with a quality Online and Distance education at an affordable price. Both our faculty and staff endeavor to serve our students and offer them the opportunity for the education they so earnestly seek. In a world of rising costs, our students enjoy the benefits of a truly online and Distance learning experience in education at only a fraction of the cost of a traditional campus setting.
Our innovative approach and flexibility
Our innovative approach and flexibility of scheduling along with our global presence distinguish ICOF as a leader in Distance Learning. Through our Distance Education Network (DEN) we employ and maintain a multitude of communication methods whereby a student may obtain a quality education in the convenience of the student’s home, office or any other available location. ALL our students attend a compulsory 21 days Residential School at the start of each semester and this allows students to get to know each other. At ICOF, our students enjoy most or all of the traditional student services afforded on a campus without having to physically relocate to a “Brick and Mortar” location away from their home and family. Our students enjoy and profit from the one-on-one and group online discussions, as well as the open door policy which affords them the opportunity to ask questions of the faculty and instructors when the need arises. Our students are never alone.
Our Approach to Education
Unlike the traditional approach to education where students are forced into a traditional classroom setting, our students maintain the flexibility of choice and freedom through our non-traditional approach to college degrees and courses. Our students, with their fragmented and busy schedules, enjoy the latest in technology and learning tools. Our approach to independent learning, flexible scheduling, adjustable time frames and innovative methods of communication allows our students to learn when and where they find the time and opportunity. Let us welcome you, our new students, coming from all walks of life, to the ICOF learning experience! We will make every effort to assist you in achieving your educational goals and, when possible, to help to meet the needs and facilitate the dreams of all of our individual prospective students.
