Refiners Fire Ministries International (RFMI) Church:

"We are proud to align ourselves with such a storied and honorable organization as the United States Marine Corps. We’ve seen them put their mission into action locally through the Ellis County Detachment 1452 as they’ve rallied to serve their own as well as the greater community of Ellis County through their service and volunteer acts. I’ve personally worked directly with several of the individuals in this group on community activities and each member has represented themselves and their group with distinction as well as exceeded the expectations of the group they assisted." - J. Nathan Grant, Ph D (Office Mgr / Youth Pastor)


Partnerships and collaboration are strategic alliances between nonprofits that are intended to achieve greater impact than any organization could generate on its own. These alliances exist along a broad spectrum of approaches, ranging from less integrated associations and coalitions to more highly integrated joint programming, shared services, and legal mergers.

In the article written by Amy DeVita titled, "10 Benefits that ONLY Nonprofits Can Bring to Partnership", Bruce Burtch promises: “There is nothing in business today that provides as much economic and social benefit, on as many levels, to as many stakeholders, as a strategic partnership between any combination of the nonprofit, for-profit, education and government sectors when focused on the greater good. Nothing else comes even close.”

If you would like to partner with our organization, we would love the opportunity to discuss the matter with you to ensure that it would be the best fit for both of our organizations. Please contact us at and our leadership team will get back with you in a timely manner. 

Thank you for considering the opportunity.
