Consumed by the Call : The Story Behind The Ministry
"No matter the circumstances that surround my life these 3 things I know...God is Good, God is Able, and He Loves Me."
—excerpt from When God Says No
"If you want to build a foundation that when the storms come your house still stands, then you need to hear and do God's word. He can't just be your Savior, He must be your Lord!"

Happen to Good People?
OUR STORY: TURNING TRAGEDY INTO PURPOSE:
Wade Ivey and I were married for almost 27 years. We had 3 beautiful children, a powerful ministry and a successful 5 Diamond Premier business, but on January 8th, 2017 our life was changed forever!
Wade had just run to the store to get a few things while I finished a post - regional rally conference call with my Premier Family. We had planned that evening to sit down with a cup of coffee and discuss the upcoming week, as we did quite often, but my sweet husband was tragically killed in a car accident while leaving the store.
The next few days were a blur, trying to comprehend what just happened. Struggling with our faith in knowing that God could do anything and that God could surely bring my husband and my children's dad home, we prayed and pleaded to God...only to hear God say "No my sweet girl...not this time."
With great courage and determination we took on the daunting task to plan a service that would celebrate and honor one of the most loving and influential ministers of this generation! This was not going to be a normal funeral service. There would be worship, there would be laughter, and it would take 4 preachers and 5 worship leaders to present the magnitude of the impact of this one life! Over 1200 people were estimated in attendance coming from all over the world! Although unconventional, I chose to stand up during my husband's funeral and present the gospel and hundreds of hands were raised and lives were changed. I knew then God was up to something. Little did I know exactly how big it would be!
That following Thursday God called me in to step into Wade's studio and record my first Facebook LIVE Daily Devo just like he had done for months before. I had no idea what the response would be. I just shared my heart with real tears and a real genuine and raw honesty. Over 34,000 people watched that one LIVE Facebook presentation! With God's help I continued sharing each weekday morning and thousands of people continue to watch to this day! This was the beginning of CONSUMED BY THE CALL MINISTRIES!
Consumed By The Call Ministries PURPOSE AND MISSION is to inspire, encourage, and ignite a new fire in the church again, to bring those far from God back into a passionate walk with Him, and to show the world that Jesus is real and has a purpose and plan for each life. We KNOW that if we choose...WE CAN LIVE BEYOND THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THIS LIFE, withstand the storms that come at us and conquer the giants that are out to defeat us! We can live beyond this world and we can find purpose even when life doesn't make sense!
HOW WE DO IT
We use social media as a catalyst to get the gospel to as many people as possible. We use platforms like Facebook, Instagram and YouTube each reaching over a billion users. We have found that the LIVE feature on Facebook is a powerful tool and use it for a Daily Devo that is watched from all over the nation as well as around the world. Francine has also produce several online video based bible studies and travels and speaks on several subject like:
the Unshakable life,
Turning Tragedy into Purpose,
When Heaven becomes Real,
and Navigating Single Parenting.
WHY PARTNER WITH US
Jesus never sent His disciples out alone to minister. God saw, when He made Adam, that we were not good alone and created him a helpmeet in Eve. The bible describes the church as the body of Christ made up of many different parts but one head, Jesus. We all have different gifts and we are all sent to spread the gospel with those gifts. We need you. As a ministry partner with CBC, you will be a part of this call to ignite the church, see those far from God brought into the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and many who are living in pain now living beyond their tragedies and finding purpose in their stories. When you commit financially each month with CBC, you are a part of this change. Join us today, and let's make a difference in our lifetime that will make a difference for generations to come.

I have been watching the daily devos for some time now and I just joined CBC's "Unshakeable" bible study. Francine and this ministry have blessed me beyond words! God's words through Francine have been a healing balm and a great encouragement! Plus, I just love learning more about the Lord and Francine knows the Word. God has given her such awesome insight! Love her and love this ministry!
DANIELLE GRUBBS, PENSACOLA, FLORIDA - JUNE 13, 2018
I tell Francine that I believe if an unbeliever would listen to her devotionals daily for a few weeks, the Lord would convict them of his love for them. I really believe this!!!
SUSAN WILSON IVEY, MOBILE, AL - APRIL 2, 2019
I love hearing the word shared by Francine! She was always on fire for the Lord, even after losing the Love of her Life, she never let go or became angry with God, she wrapped herself in his love and has used her tragedy for Christ! She and her children are powerhouses for the Lord! I’m very excited to see where the Lord leads her!

Good morning! Just wanted to share that I went in last night to tell Gretta to put her phone down and go to sleep and she said, "I'm watching Mrs. Francine's daily devo, can I finish it before I go to sleep"? Thank you so much for sharing and ministering to my 12 year old! Love you and your family so much!!!
