Launch Events

We are passionate about giving Australians the opportunity to know Jesus personally. Many Aussies are interested in spiritual things, but have little desire to visit a church. So how can they get to know Jesus?

MyFriends helps everyday Christians develop a lifestyle that creates opportunities for their friends and family to discover God’s story together.

MyFriends provides a coaching community that intentionally prays, loves, cares, and shares Jesus with their non-churched friends, family, and colleagues. We’re trusting that Australians will experience Jesus and be ready to discover God’s story together, in their own communities.

Pioneered in Zurich by Campus für Christus, MyFriends is designed specifically for a post-modern, millennial, non-churched, western culture. Having been tested in Switzerland and Australia, MyFriends is bearing fruit of new believers and multiplying groups. We’re now inviting pastors, leaders, and everyday Christians to learn more about this opportunity and send thousands of Jesus’ followers into the Australian community to connect their friends to Him.

What we will be doing at the launch event?

We’re looking forward to meeting you for a fun and informal evening:

  • Hearing stories about how the MyFriends training process has helped everyday Christians share Jesus with their friends and family.
  • Introducing the MyFriends training process.
  • Answering your questions.
  • Providing opportunities to engage further with MyFriends training personally or with people in your church/organisation.

Who is this launch for?

If you’re a pastor or Christian leader who is looking for a way for your people to become disciplemakers with their friends, family, and colleagues, then this event is for you!

If you’re a new Christian or have been following Jesus for a long time and would like to help your friends become disciples of Jesus committed to making disciples, this event is for you!

The goal of MyFriends is to form multiplying groups of Christians who are studying God’s Word together and seeking to follow Jesus. If you’re looking for a way to equip people in your group to share Jesus with their friends and family, then this event is for you!

Who is Power to Change?

Power to Change (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ Australia) is part of a global movement seeking to connect people to Jesus and each other.

Campus für Christus in Switzerland developed MyFriends training in order to reach non-churched people for Jesus in a wealthy post-Christian culture similar to Australia’s. We have been trialling MyFriends in Sydney and Melbourne over the past 6 months and have found it useful for equipping Christians in Australia to connect non-churched Aussies to Jesus and form new faith communities connected to established church congregations.
