Thanks for your interest in MyFriends. Our scheduled training for 2020 have been postponed due to COVID-19. You can find some MyFriends related resources on our Connecting people to Jesus during COVID-19 page.
Discover God with Your Friends
We are passionate about giving Australians the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Many Aussies are interested in spiritual things, but have little desire to visit a church. So how can they get to know Jesus?
MyFriends helps everyday Christians develop a lifestyle that creates opportunities for their friends and family to discover God’s story together.
MyFriends provides a coaching community that intentionally prays, loves, cares, and shares Jesus with their non-churched friends, family, and colleagues. We’re trusting that Australians will experience Jesus and be ready to discover God’s story together, in their own communities.
MyFriends is designed specifically for a post-modern, millennial, non-churched, western culture. Having originated in Switzerland and now launched in Australia, MyFriends is bearing fruit of new believers and multiplying groups. We’re now inviting pastors, leaders, and everyday Christians to partner with us on this journey to send thousands of Jesus’ followers into the Australian community to connect their friends to Him.
Who Is MyFriends For?
PASTORS & LEADERS
If you’re a pastor or Christian leader who is looking for a way for your people to become disciplemakers with their friends, family, and colleagues, then MyFriends for you!
If you’re a new Christian or have been following Jesus for a long time and would like to help your friends become disciples of Jesus committed to making disciples, MyFriends is for you!
BIBLE STUDY LEADERS
The goal of MyFriends is to form multiplying groups of Christians who are studying God’s Word together and seeking to follow Jesus. If you’re looking for a way to equip people in your group to share Jesus with their friends and family, then MyFriends is for you!
Although the principles of the MyFriends Lifestyle are simple, it takes time for these to become natural habits. For this reason we slow the training down so it takes three to five months to complete.
Your MyFriends Learning Community will have one of two schedules - either four Saturdays spread over five months, or six weekday evenings spread over five months.
It is easier to develop a MyFriends Lifestyle if you have three to five friends who are going through the training with you. This will allow you to form a local MyFriends peer coaching group where you can help one another live this lifestyle during and after the formal training rounds.
Periodic webcam gatherings take place during MyFriends Training with all the groups involved in your Learning Community to help people with questions, hear stories, and to pray.
You will have the opportunity to interact with other participants through instant messaging - to share prayer and praise points, ask questions, and encourage one another.
