1. Friendship First (FF) Course

Friendship First is a six session, interactive course to help ordinary Christians discuss the good news with friends from a nearby faith. One will learn from the DVD as well as the local supplementary material and testimonies about their friends, culture and beliefs. This course will enable Christians to grow in greater compassion and skills to build meaningful bridges of friendship and become more effective witnesses of Christ.

The course is usually run once every four months, but it can also be catered to availability of churches who sign up together. Do write in to start@interserve.org.sg for further details.

2. Friendship First Circle (FFC)

Friendship First Circle is a five month discipleship program whereby those who have finished the Friendship First course are keen to commit to meeting fortnightly to discuss in greater depth issues such as contextualization, befriending and discipling friends from a nearby faith in our local context. The course also includes home visits and visiting places of worship to better understand their worldview and values. It fosters a sense of community amongst like-minded believers and seeks to spur Christ-followers committed to serving people of the nearby faith for the long haul.

3. Journey into the Nations: Learning Trail

Learning Trail is a missions discipleship journey that is part-time and flexible, to disciple and journey with those with a heart for the nations. Each Learning Trail has a unique focus on a particular need or people group. We are thankful for our first Learning Trail in January 2018 with a focus on the refugees in Asia and the Arab world. Over a period of three or four months, the course is flexible and catered to working professionals who will come together fortnightly either to share their thoughts from the readings on Christian mission and learn from mission practitioners across the world over video calls. It will begin with a weekend retreat for prayer and community bonding, and in the case of our first Learning Trail, we ended with Interserve’s inaugural Refugee Conference and a commissioning service.

There will be two Learning Trails each year. Those who commit to join in the Learning Trail will have to commit themselves to go for a minimum three months On Track (short term missions program) overseas or to serve in the local office for a year within the year of graduation from Learning Trail.

4. Monthly prayer discipleship meetings

Interserve Singapore welcomes the body of Christ to join in the monthly prayer meeting (7:30-9:30pm on the second Tuesday of every month) to grow in awareness and intercession for the hard places, the least served nations in Asia and the Arab World. Come and be encouraged to hear the stories of workers who served in the hard places and learn opportunities how one can be involved through vision trips or long term involvement.
