Kingdom Empowerment International Fellowship (K.E.I.F.)
Statement of Purpose
Kingdom Empowerment International Fellowship also known as KEIF, is a non for profit,
non-denominational religious organization; subsidiary of DLAM (Donald L. Alford Ministries) and affiliated with Progressive Life-Giving Word Cathedral. Being both Spirit led, and Spirit filled, KEIF upholds only the purposes of God and is solely governed by the Word of God. We are an organization with a definite agenda to provide wisdom, guidance and oversight by request; to enrich and accelerate the growth, development and impact of its membership ministries. The fellowship's ultimate goal is to promote the cause of Jesus Christ, serving as an influencer to the body of believers that it apostolically covers. Our aim is to function with excellence and a commitment to integrity that has been demonstrated over 20 years.
The purpose of this organization is to help enhance the vision of the local Pastor and Ministry Gift as given by Jesus Christ. With the Chief Prelate as Overseer, along with its staff, providing strong apostolic support, information and guidance; creating unity and oneness within the fellowship to advance the Kingdom of God through our local churches and ministry gifts. Unity in the Body of Christ among ministries is essential for the end time harvest. Choosing to unite together under a common banner of faith and integrity, we can accomplish more for the Kingdom of God.
KEIF is designed to help leadership and workers in ministry mature by giving them the necessary tools to equip them for effective and efficient service within their local church and ministry organizations. Igniting an apostolic fire in the hearts of its members, KEIF promotes the welfare of the community through outreach encouraging the believer to boldly rise up as a witness for Jesus Christ and have an evangelistic thrust to win souls for the Kingdom. Therefore, we conclude as a fellowship, that we are sold out for Christ, committed to demonstrating the love and power of God through the preaching of the gospel of Jesus Christ, living a godly lifestyle and through the portraying of signs and wonders on this Earth. We are prisoners of Jesus Christ, bound to Him, and to His cause until He returns and takes the church home.
We are grateful for the opportunity to expand the impact of our ministry assignment to organize and administrate a group of pastors and ministry gifts who sense a spiritual connection with our ministry.

The History of KEIF
Apostle Donald L. Alford, was called to walk in the office of Apostle in March 1994. He was affirmed and consecrated as an apostle in the body of Christ in June 1995 through the laying on of hands by Bishop Larry Trotter, (chief consecrator), Bishop Willie Chambliss, Apostle Joseph Stanford and Apostle Marzel Gill.
Apostle Alford, was led by God to begin a fellowship in 1996 called "Progressive Fellowship For Kingdom Builders." Then in later years Apostle Alford changed the name of the fellowship to its present name "Kingdom Empowerment International Fellowship, Inc. as a non denominational, Spirit filled, Spirit led, bible based, religious organization registered in the state of Illinois. Apostle was extremely blessed to have by his side, his lovely wife, soul mate, and spiritual partner, Associate Pastor, Lady Gloria Alford, who presently serves as the Vice President of KEIF.
The fellowship consist of churches and Ministry gifts, who adamantly seek the heart of God, who embraces the apostolic mandated of Jesus Christ and the kingdom agenda, which is to do the work of the ministry. The fellowship began growing with members from the Chicagoland area and even to Atlanta, Georgia. The fellowship began having monthly sessions for its members which consisted of Pastors and Ministry Gifts who were approved first by their senior Pastor in their local churches to become official members of the fellowship.
The main focus of the fellowship in its infancy is to support the mission and vision of the local Pastor and ministry Gift and the fellowship kept it from the beginning until now. The fellowships design is also to help assist the Pastor in seeing their vision become a reality through the strengthening of their leaders and workers within the local church to assist the Pastor in seeing his vision come true.
Apostle Alford was led by God to reach out to Pastors in the fellowship and those who are not in the fellowship, periodically who need encouragement and support. Therefore Apostle appointed an apostolic team to travel with him to various churches to impact the leadership and the church body.
K.E.I.F. is on the move to take back spiritual and natural territory which belongs to the church of Jesus Christ. This is not a gathering of believers who seek for personal gain, but seek to emphasize and promote and execute implement, as the main goal, the ministry of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
