While serving as pastor of the Trinity Baptist Church in Ludowici, Georgia (USA) since 1998, Bro. Tim Parrish was enabled to take missions trips on a regular basis. In 2008, he met Bro. Steve Mahusay during a missions trip to the Philippines. Bro. Steve had been awarded a scholarship to attend Bible college in the United States. While in college, Bro. Steve completed his summer internships at Trinity Baptist Church.
Bro. Tim's heart became burdened with a desire to partner with Bro. Steve to establish a church upon his return to the Philippines after graduation. In 2011, the Trinity Baptist Church in Ludowici, Georgia (USA) partnered with Bro. Steve to establish the Trinity Baptist Church in Sagay City on the island of Negros in the Philippines. Bro. Steve was sent out from the Trinity Baptist Church (USA) as the Lord provided funds for the purchase of property and construction of a building for the Trinity Baptist Church in the Philippines.
In that same year, TFFMI was established in order to partner with other nationals to plant churches world wide. Since 2011, additional pioneering works and church plants have been established by nationals. TFFMI is a missions ministry out of Trinity Independent Fundamental Baptist Church, Inc., 679 Lee Place Road NE, Ludowici, GA 313136, tax ID number 58-2157102.
In October 2013, Bro. Parrish surrendered to missions during their missions conference. In August 2014, Bro. Parrish resigned as pastor of Trinity Baptist Church (USA) to begin deputation and serve as the international director for TFFMI full time.
