You Can Do It

Raising Missionary Disciples – Session 2 The Why Of Disciplemaking
Have you ever wondered how other people share the gospel so freely? Or how you can grow in the way you think about and share your faith? Raising Missionary Disciples is a great course from our partner charity Kairos Connexion… That can show you how to do that.

The aim of the free, short course is to empower and train you, through exploring the how and why of disciple-making. We all know we are meant to make disciples but we often lack the confidence or understanding of how to do that. These 4 engaging videos will help you get to grips with this vital topic.

Watch the video above to find out more.

(Please note: the location of this course will be changing to be on the Kairos Connexion website, but staying completely free!)

Young People Need to Know Jesus
Then he took the children in his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them. (Mark 10:16 NLT)

Prayer for Steve Beegoo, Head of Education at Christian Concern

Steve Beegoo, Head of Education at Christian Concern, shared his heart for Christian young people of this city at a TFH prayer event for Liverpool Leaders. He highlighted many struggles and challenges facing young people and their parents who are trying to raise them. He emphasised the importance of supporting our young people and creating an environment for them to flourish through this formative stage of life. He shared research from The Prince’s Trust eBay Youth Index in February 2019 of how 1 in 6 eight year olds have been involved in sexting and 30% of young people use smartphones in a dysfunctional way, resulting in stress, anxiety, depression and poor sleep. Furthermore, 57% of 16-25 year olds believe social media creates an overwhelming pressure to succeed, 46% of 16-25 year olds feel inadequate when comparing their lives to their friends on social media. We also know that 14 is the average age a child with christian parents leave the church. All of this shows the real need to support our young people and the importance youth work should have within the church.

Love your Neighbour as Yourself
The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:31 NIV)

Imagine each one of us prayed for our street and our neighbours. What could God do?

At TFH we know that there is so much to pray for and that it can be so easy to become overwhelmed. Worldly issues such as politics, earthquakes, fires and many more can seem so much more pressing to pray for rather than the seemingly small and micro things that are happening around us. But we have witnessed that some of the most rewarding prayers are those intimate, local prayers where we can first hand see the results.

At TFH we know that God has chosen you to make a difference. Click here to see how.

Here is Sarah’s Story:

“Praying regularly for our neighbours has been a focal point for our Missional Household. Following a time of prayer last Friday evening, two of my neighbours, independent of each other, asked for prayer the very next day!

A Muslim lady whose mother had been taken into hospital and another lady who had some work issues. It was lovely to be able to respond to God’s response to our prayers and offer something spiritual to help both neighbours’ situations!

After praying for my neighbour’s work situation, I got a text the next day to say that one of her work issues had been resolved! It was great to reiterate that I had been praying for her and would continue to do so.”

Through Neighbourhood Prayer Network, 294 streets in the Liverpool City Region are regularly being prayed for, if you would like to sign up to prayer for your street, please click the button below.
