Speaking

Jesus told us that the two greatest commands are to love God and neighbor.

We believe that most Christ followers want to live out these two commands but they just aren’t sure how.

So why aren’t they?

The FYM one day is equipping on steroids. With passion, warmth, humor, conviction and connection, Jonathan and Steve equip participants to embrace and develop their discipleship call to love God & their neighbor. No guilt or shame techniques, rather practical equipping & encouragement and lots of fun too!

JOEL SMITH
Mount Joy Mennonite Church

What if evangelism was less about a high-pressure sales pitch and more like a party with your neighbors? If that resonates with you, Front Yard mission will help you reach people as part of your life rather than something extra. Jonathan is an incredible trainer who will leave you with the confidence and courage to love people in your community!

NITHINTHOMPSON
City Alliance Church

The Front Yard Mission One Day Event was the best decision I have made in ministry to bring to our church. Whether you are new to reaching out to your community or you are a missionary with a heart for the lost, anyone can benefit from this training. Jonathan and Steve have great passion for reaching their neighbors and after the One Day Event you will too.

The Front Yard Mission masterclass is a digital course that combines learning content with actually doing front yard mission. We spent a year writing, shooting, and editing the course. You can do this
six-week course on your own but it’s meant to be done together.

Stories

We have several 3 minute story videos that highlight different aspects of FrontYard Mission. These are great to show at your church service to keep Front Yard  Mission out in front of your church. These testimonies are from actual practitioners of FrontYard Mission.

Physical  Resources

Get lots of free practical ideas and tips including printable door hangers, our playbook for our neighbor events, and a PDF of 52 ways to love your neighbor. We also have a Facebook group of over 3,000 people who regularly share about their Front Yard Mission and we have a podcast where we do a deep dive into FrontYard Mission
