Today's MFM Talking Points
MFM FC is a Lagos-based Nigerian professional football club that competes in the Nigeria Premier League. The club is wholly owned by the The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, a Pentecostal Christian Organization. In 2013, MFM FC took over the slot of Bolowatan F.C. in the Nigeria National League, the second-tier division in Nigerian football. The founder of Bolowotan FC, Toyin Gafaar, a Muslim, handed the slot to the church (MFM) to manage without collecting a dime in return. On 31 August 2015, MFM FC gained promotion to the Nigeria Premier League.
The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club of Lagos won the maiden edition of The Church World Cup.
