Sunday Evenings: 4:45-6:00 pm
Wednesday Evenings: 7:00-8:00 pm

Since January 2002, Prestoncrest members have worked with people from around the world through the FriendSpeak program. This program allows people opportunity to practice their conversational English skills. The conversations, however, are based on materials taken from the New Testament, so that the Reader is exposed to the Word of God in a friendly setting. Also, naturally, Readers raise questions about what they are reading, which opens the door for Workers to share their faith in a very non-confrontational environment. While some Readers are initially interested only in the English; with time, the conversations will turn from grammar and pronunciation to spiritual themes. Our hope is that it plants seeds of faith in Jesus in each Reader.

The FriendSpeak ministry offers the one-with-one conversational English sessions every Sunday at 4:45 pm, and every Wednesday at 7:00 pm. The program is designed to bring unsaved people into personal contact with God’s powerful Word.

The FriendSpeak ministry is based solely on two activities; sharing Jesus and sharing ourselves. Prestoncrest members do not need to be fluent in a foreign language, since the objective is to improve the English skills of the Reader. This program has been blessed by attracting a wide variety of Readers from Afghanistan, China, Columbia, Peru, France, Mexico, India, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Hungary, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Iran, Honduras, and Uruguay.

The program has only one guarantee; the Prestoncrest Worker will be blessed through their time spent with the Reader!
