Message from the Director
Jesus Christ came to Earth, lived, loved, died, rose again, then ascended to the heavens. The ministry He left behind for His followers to continue is the advancement of the Kingdom of God through the transformation of human hearts. The Friends Center is a part of that vision.
The Friends Center is formed on the convictions that Jesus gave His followers:
- The Mission: to form disciples in all people groups of the world
- The Vehicle: the Church, which consists of all His followers
- The Power: the Holy Spirit, who indwells and empowers every follower of Christ
We are committed to developing spiritual leaders who are growing in:
- Character: a life surrendered to and empowered by God
- Learning: cognitive development reflecting deep biblical and theological thinking
- Skills: practical ministry skills required to lead churches and ministries with effectiveness
If you are interested in being a part of the Friends Center, contact me. I would love to hear what God is doing in your life and see if we can partner in this great work.
