Promoting Spiritual Friendship in Church and Society through:

Training

Equipping people to live out relationally healthy lives in the church and in the world.

Mentoring

Training mentors and running mentoring groups to help followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness.

Publishing

Bringing to life books that promote spiritual friendship and connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life.

Why Spiritual Friendship?

Spiritual friendship is friendship that is rooted in Christ for the purpose of helping followers of Jesus grow in Christlikeness. Our model for spiritual friendship takes its cue from Jesus, who called together a community (Matthew 4:18–22) at the start of His public ministry.

The Christian life can be described as following Jesus in the company of friends. But how many of us have these vital and life-giving relationships in place.

Why Publishing?

It is all too easy to live a life that divides the sacred from the secular, to let cultural influences and societal pressures/norms sweep us away.

But we believe that all of life is lived under God; that there is no such divide.

So we publish books to help followers of Jesus Christ embrace spiritual friendship, and live out their faith in the world. Our books help them connect the Word of God with the issues of daily life — truth for life — issues like busyness, young adulthood, marriage, parenting, growing old, work as worship to God, politics, corruption, to name a few.

Face to Face for Life

empathic: "showing an ability to understand and share the feelings of another." I don't often read when I am on a flight but I am glad I read Curt Thompson's Anatomy of the Soul (Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 2010) on a recent flight to Penang. Quoting...

Hope and Guide

Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its...

Mentoring Young Adults — Mission Critical

Last Sunday afternoon, we had the privilege to conduct a seminar on mentoring young adults in Bedok Methodist Church. The request was a recent one and I was already down to preach at another church that morning, two sermons in fact. But I had said yes to this...

An Evening in Bangsar

Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked...
