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. 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.

Don’t Look Away

It's already moving off the front pages of print and online media, not spared of the relentless push for new news to catch the attention of audiences addicted to novelty. But this happened last Friday: A powerful, 7.5-magnitude earthquake hit the Indonesian island of...

Losing to Gain

The third third of life, 60–90 and beyond, is a time of loss. It is a time when we bid goodbye to many things. We bid goodbye to a younger body. Our energy levels are not the same. We may need multifocal spectacles or go for cataract operations. Our hearing begins to...

The Witness of Our Lives

What are the weapons of our warfare? I have always been intrigued by how the early church grew so rapidly. To quote Alan Kreider: The growth of the Christian church in the Roman Empire is mysterious. Scholars who spend their entire lives studying this phenomenon...

A Focused Heart

Recently I was ministering in Kota Kinabalu, East Malaysia, and took the opportunity to meet up with an old friend, Pastor Lam Kee Hing. (He is a little older than me.) I don't think I exaggerate when I call him the key leader in the ministry to indigenous people in...
