After years of service in East Africa, George & Dorothy Middleton founded ICCM in 1985. Their desire was to empower people who had been marginalized and doomed to poverty. Their goal was to provide these people not only with immediate needs of food, clothes, shelter & love, but also with a future – by giving them skills to earn a living, and introducing them to a loving Heavenly Father.
Dorothy was called home to be with the Lord in early 2013. George joined her in glory in 2019. By God’s grace, the work to which they devoted their lives continues to this day, thanks to the faithful efforts of the global ICCM family. Through selfless service of faithful servants on the front lines of need, and with generous support the others behind the scenes, the global ICCM family over the years has been a channel of God’s love to countless people around the world.
What a privilege to be a part of God’s work! Over the past 40 years there have been many highs and lows, with each experience teaching valuable lessons and bringing happy blessings. In fulfillment of our Guiding Principles, ICCM’s International Programs have expanded to support many wonderful ministries serving a great many people around the world. Now we are seeing men and women, who were helped by ICCM in earlier years, going on to serve Him with their own talents and gifts. What a wonderful harvest! And with God’s help, we look forward to so much more over coming years.
What Makes Us Different?
ICCM is a compact and highly-focused organization with a “personal touch.” We are all about people: people-focused ministry in our program countries, and friendly personal relationships with our wonderful support family. We empower nationals to serve their own people – helping fellow-Christians and also reaching out the surrounding community. We keep things simple and straightforward. And we make the most of every entrusted dollar – careful & ethical stewardship is an absolute. These are some of the distinct characteristics our supporters appreciate. But most important: Our desire is to honour God in everything we do, and to point people to Jesus Christ at every opportunity.
