Our mission is to multiply disciples of Jesus in New Zealand by partnering with local churches and ministries in the areas of disciple making, conversational evangelism, inductive Bible study, expository Bible teaching, and biblical worldview training, to the glory of God and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We invite you to explore our site. If you would like to be involved or have any questions, please let us know.
Visit a Local Church
We work closely with several churches in Otago and Southland. These are great churches that love God, teach the Bible, and welcome all people. Click on the links below to learn more.
Join a Discipleship Group
Are you looking for mentorship, teamwork, and accountability? We run several "D Groups" that consist of three to five men or women who meet together regularly to share life, discuss the Bible, and hold one another accountable. These groups typically run for a year, so members can really get to know one another. Click here to learn more.
Share the Good News of Jesus
We regularly hit the streets of Dunedin to share the good news of Jesus in a respectful, conversational way. We do this by asking basic worldview questions that usually lead to a gospel conversation. Some of these conversations we record and upload to our YouTube channel. Let us know if you'd like to join us or receive evangelism training.
Study the Bible Inductively
Inductive Bible study is the gold standard in personal study of God's word. It involves three steps--observation, interpretation, and application--and can be done by children, teens, and adults. We've got several groups meeting in Dunedin and online, so there's bound to be a group that fits your schedule. Our Tu Kaha youth study for ages 9-16 meets every Friday evening in Dunedin and is popular with youth who are serious about Bible study. These Bible studies are evangelical and nondenominational. Let us know if you're interested!
Engage with In-Depth Bible Teaching
Jeff Coleman and Ric Sun, our primary Bible teachers, love to preach and teach God's word. We provide messages on theology, biblical topics, and all 66 books of the Old and New Testament. We love to show how the Bible fits together as one unified story about God, humanity, and Christ. Jeff teaches regularly as an elder at Caversham Community Church, Dunedin, and Ric will be teaching regularly as an associate pastor of Christchurch Community Church. For study notes, commentary, and other resources, please click here. Recorded messages may be found here.
Get Equipped to Answer Hard Questions
Through The Forge Dunedin and Waihola Worldview Weekends, we equip believers young and old to defend the Christian faith and make a positive case for Christianity. We deal with difficult questions of science, sex, morality, and culture to show that the biblical worldview has true, satisfying answers for the important questions we ask as human beings.
