We are participating in a 5K on April 27th 2013 to raise money for Friend2Friend, a Youth for Christ Ministry.
Friend2Friend is a ministry that is near and dear to my heart (Lisa here). My darling brother manages the in's and out's of this ministry by flying all over the county to lead, train and support the adult leaders of Friend2Friend. He collaborated with many YFC leaders to make an amazing Friend2Friend curriculum that I had the priveledge to edit. After reading the Friend2Friend curriculum intimately from cover to cover I was blown away at how necessary and relevant this ministry is. I pray that my daughters get involved with Friend2Friend when they are older.
It is my pleasure to tell you that my family is happily going to push a stroller AND pull a wagon around our neighborhood on April 27th to support Friend2Friend. Below is a description of exactly what Friend2Friend is and does.
Please consider donating to our team to help us support this amazing ministry. Or please consider walking with us!
Friend2Friend® is teams of students with adult coaches who together, follow Jesus in a way that naturally invites the student's friends to discover Jesus with them. Teams of students meet weekly with adult coaches to Share, Pray and Discover how God is challenging them to take risks and invite their lost friends to discover Jesus with them.
The Barna research group reports that at least 78% of new Christians meet Christ because of a friend. Christian students are the best group of people to build relationships with other students and share with the Gospel with them. Trust and credibility are instantly given to a peer whereas an adult may work for months, and in some cases years, to build that sort of relationship with a student.
The ministry of Friend2Friend is growing and needs additional financial resources to continue its growth and impact in our local schools. Through your donation to the Friend2Friend 5K, more students will have the opportunity to hear about Christ from a friend.
