TFM is also known as
"Walk of a Thousand Men".
It is an evangelisic evangelical organisation which aranges week-long vists of a team to a church where it follows a pre-planned programme with the aim of convincing others to follow the evangelical gospel of salvation:
1 Admit your need. (I am a sinner)
2 Be willing to turn from your sins.
3 Believe that Jesus Christ died for you on the cross
4 Believe that Jesus rose again.
5 Believe Jesus is God, the Son
6 Pray the sinner's prayer.

Along with the actual missions, I was trained as an evangelist under the wing of TFM.|
Over the period 2001 to 2005, I took part in a Nottingham University Diploma course,
"Evangelism and Psychology", which involved written and practical work.
On passing, I became a member of the "Society of Contemporary Evangelists".
However I had left Dorset (2011) with doubts and found Sudbury(2014) hard to stomach.
Lack of creedal certainty is not conducive to Evangelical evangelism!
It was time to move on, even though it was sad to leave the gang.
My days proclaiming this form of Christianity were over.
