Welcome to Leighton Ford Ministries

After thirty years of preaching the gospel around the world, as vice-president of the Billy Graham Association, Leighton Ford strongly felt a need to help identify, develop, and network younger leaders in a new generation.

His vision for doing this was confirmed in a prayer meeting in Oslo, Norway, when he heard someone quote Isaiah 43:18-19, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing… do you not perceive it?”

In 1986 Leighton Ford Ministries (LFM) was founded to help young leaders to lead more like Jesus, and more to Jesus, to be kingdom seekers rather than empire builders, and to be strengthened in their own spiritual lives. Since then, LFM has initiated programs of leadership development and spiritual mentoring, which began with two young seminary graduates and has now grown far beyond that initial vision.
