Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) is one of the largest Christian Business Men's Networks in the world. Founded in 1952, we are in over 85 nations, meeting in thousands of chapters. Here in the United States there are thousands of members representing chapters across FGBMFI USA’s 11 regions.
FGBMFI’s primary strategy is executed on the local level; yet the organization is global in scope and reach.
Designed to be a grassroots movement, the structure of our organization purposefully attempts to push resources to local level – equipping the member to impact his or her local community or city.
Our International President
On February 10, 2018 in a solemn meeting of the International Directors, held in the city of Houston, USA; Mr. Mario García Olvera was elected by a majority vote as the new International President of FGBMFI.
We are sure that Mr. Garcia, with the help of God and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will be able to carry out the reconstruction and rebirth of our worldwide organization for these final times.
Mario is a man dedicated to agricultural business, he is married and has 3 children, who reside in the city of Monterrey, Mexico.
He has been an active member for 24 years and has held different positions in his country, currently he is also the National President of FGBMFI Mexico, according to the International Bylaws.
Mario was named by Dr. Richard Shakarian as Regional VP for Latin America and in recent years he focused on the unity and growth of South America.
He was a close adviser to Dr. Richard Shakarian, involved in projects worldwide and visiting different continents, carrying forward the vision and purposes of our organization. He is known as a simple and humble man and in all the regions where he shared, seeds were left sown with Love, Unity and Respect.
Let us ask God for his life, for his leadership, so that he may receive wisdom from above and carry out the work for which he has been called in these special times at the head of this great global organization.
At the July 2021 FGBMFI International Directors’ Meeting prior to the World Convention in Monterrey, Mexico, Mario was reelected by the 70 International Directors for another 3-year term as the International President.
