to obey everything I have commanded you." - (Matthew 28 v19-20).

Through Faith Missions (TFM), we are here to help. TFM
has been involved in serious mission work for over 18 years, has
trained over 4,000 people as part-time evangelists, and has
run about 600 UK missions, plus some to Uganda and Kenya.
There are easy and proven methods to reach
out to others with the Word of God. And many times there are good
Many years ago, I longed to share my faith with others. But the
college where I studied as a lay preacher didn't include evangelism.
I couldn't find distance learning courses, open college, open university:
nothing. And yet it's what Jesus tells us to do.
Then, one day, I discovered TFM. Their approach was simple: "We've
done it before, so come with us and we'll show you how."
That's called "making disciples". And so
I began with a mission to the Maasai in Kenya, in 2005. Hundreds

What about you? Would you love to share your faith with others,
to be "little evangelists"; but you don't know how?
Would you like to "have a go"?
Or maybe you're a church leader and you'd like some of your congregation
to learn how?
We can help you; we equip people and churches to do evangelism;
we train people in a simple and proven approach to share their faith.
Learn how to approach people and start a conversation about God
in an easy, non-threatening way.

There are about 96 Christian churches here in
Gloucester, and amongst them are people who have experience of "doing
mission", sometimes sharing the Gospel with certain groups of people.
They might be working with the homeless; prison ministry; street
evangelism; visiting people in their homes; working in schools or
in care homes; or they might be good at inviting people to their
church; or church planting, and so on.
This means there is a lot of knowledge and experience in reaching
out to those who don't know Jesus Christ yet; to those who believe
there is some kind of God, but don't know what to do about it.
If you have something you might be willing to share with
other Christians, then please contact
us. This is all for the Kingdom!

Come with us, and we'll show you. We run occasional training sessions;
at basic level these are for half a day; or for full mission work,
a Friday evening and all day Saturday. Not a lot to give up for
the sake of saving someone's life: eternal life. We show you how;
and then you can go out and do it, working alongside someone else.

Our Lord Jesus Christ needs evangelists: people who are willing
to step out of their comfort zones and be witnesses to Him; to help
bring others into the Kingdom; to change their lives - for eternity.
Local small missions hve been run in
Gloucester in the past. Initial research reveals that about 71% of the
public believe there is some kind of God.
