Welcome in the name of Jesus, to

"It has been a privilege to work for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords... I feel we are ambassadors reaching souls for the heavenly kingdom." - a fellow missioner.

We use proven methods for Outreach and Evangelism

Jesus told his followers to -
"... go and make disciples ... teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." - (Matthew 28 v19-20).

In association with 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.

Why are we here?

1. To equip churches and individuals to Learn How

There are easy and proven methods to reach out to others with the Word of God. And many times there are good results.

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 of people came to Christ; three new churches were planted, and these people are still going many years later - see the Maasai Missions website.

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.

If this is something you would like to learn, then please contact us.

2. To share our expertise, one church with another

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!

Would you like to "give it a try"?

· Have you ever wondered how to share your faith?
· How to "do" simple evangelism?
· How to start a conversation about God?
· How to "be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have" (1 Peter 3:15).
· How to lead someone to Christ?
· How to "do the work of an evangelist"? (2 Timothy 4:5)

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. See Practical Mission Training.

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.
