Friendspeak

Reach out to international friends in our area, helping them practice their English! Read the book of Luke with them for 45 minutes each week in a one-on-one setting. These English conversation sessions allow time to build friendship and share Christ's love. You plant the seed by being their friend while allowing God’s Word to work in their hearts.

FriendSpeak has been blessed with 80+ amazing FriendSpeak workers at Grace Fellowship Church, outreaching to 150+ international readers  from Malaysia, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Brazil, Venezuela, and Angola with English, Friendship, and the Word of God! We are looking for more volunteers as we still have many internationals on the waiting list. Many of them do not know Christ and are looking for an American friend to read the Bible with them, helping them practice their English.

Our FriendSpeak live training via Zoom will be on September 2, from 7-9:30pm. Anyone who is interested in volunteering may register at:

The FriendSpeak fall semester begins the week of September 6. One-on-one meeting day/time is based on each person's availability. Questions? Contact Sarah at sarahkaty2000@yahoo.com.

MULTIPLY GROUPS:

VISION: LET'S MAKE DISCIPLES OUT OF MOTIVATION MORE THAN OBLIGATION

Sometimes people talk about making disciples like it's a chore: chores are something you SHOULD do, but you probably don't want to. Now, is it a chore to tell your friends about your new favorite restaurant or movie? Is it a chore to have dinner with someone you love? The difference is whether you're talking about it out of obligation (you feel you should) or motivation (you want to). We want to make disciples and love God out of motivation!

Because you're reading this, I assume you want to abide in God's love, bear fruit, and have your joy be made full! Our multiply groups are about:

  1. ABIDING in God and Jesus. Spending time in relationship with Him, knowing Him and enjoying Him.
  2. As a result, out of OVERFLOW, we want to make disciples. Not because we have to, not because we 'should', not because of obligation, but because we are motivated to tell people about the JOY we have, the best news have!

It's okay if you're not there yet, that's probably why you're here. We want to walk together in that, in learning to love God, how to have conversations with other people about Him, and how to make disciples. Come learn with us! It's okay if you're busy or nervous or don't like meeting people or not good with words. The only thing you have to bring to the group is some time and some willingness to learn to love God more. 

JOHN 15: 

  • Jesus says that He is the vine, and we are the branches. Whoever abides in Jesus and Jesus abides in him, he bears much fruit.
  • God is glorified, that we bear much fruit and so prove to be his disciples. 
  • If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, and your joy may be full.

Doesn't that sound awesome? I want to do that.

TEAM STRUCTURE

  • 3 HOURS: Throughout the week, we have a reading structure of short Bible passages for us each to read.It takes about 3 hours altogether of Bible passages and a small workbook.
  • 2 HOURS: We go out in pairs or small groups throughout the week and practice sharing! When virtual, we explore how to share virtually as well! Your leaders will guide, model, and demonstrate SEVERAL times before you do it. Don't fear we'll assign you to go share the Gospel with no help!
  • 1 HOUR: We meet together for one hour of prayer together during the week. Prayer is a BIG part of the work!
  • 2 HOURS MEETING: We act like a team: we have a meeting 'HALF-TIME' where we gather, plan, pray, worship, and encourage each other before we go back out into the game again!

It's ABOUT 8 hours per week for 10 weeks.

We use 'Spiritual Multiplication in the Real World - Bob McNabb' (white textbook and orange workbook) as our framework. Amazon has them for $25 combined

A Discovery Bible Study (DBS) is a discipleship study which enables people to read the Bible and discover what it has to say to them. Simple, memorable questions allow participants to understand the character of God, encourage them to obey what they are learning and help them to share it with others.
