Full Gospel Business Men to host regional convention

The recently rejuvenated local chapter of the Full Gospel Business Men Fellowship International (FGBMFI) will host the annual regional convention of the organisation.{{more}}

The FGBMFI is an international organisation founded over 60 years ago, with 7,000 chapters in 142 countries. The various chapters meet once per week for a time of sharing and mutual encouragement, geared at improving the lives of members, their families and their communities.

Previous attempts at establishing a vibrant local chapter have been made; however, after a life changing encounter, partially influenced by a Grenadian chapter of the organisation, local businessman Anil Jiandani returned with a passion to make a change and has been the driving force behind the local chapter, a release from FGBMFI said.

The chapter held its first meeting in March of this year and continues to have breakfast meetings at 9 a.m. each Saturday at the Paradise Beach Hotel.

It is led by an interim committee, which includes Anil Jiandani, Dennis Gaymes, Theodore Browne (Junior), Paul Morris, Silky DaSilva, Lennox Dennie and George Frederick.

“The fact that the annual regional convention has been moved to St Vincent and the Grenadines from its originally scheduled location, Barbados, is evidence of what is happening in the local chapter,” a release from FGBMFI said.

The convention, which will be held from October 24 to 26, is expected to have participation of 50 male delegates from various Caribbean countries, representing all walks of life.

Despite its name, the organisation caters to females through its Women’s Chapters. Although a local Women’s Chapter has not yet been initiated, plans are on the way to do so in January 2014.

The Chapter has extended an invitation to all men to be their guests at a Saturday morning breakfast meeting.
