Friends in Formation is a FIND!!!

It’s a gift to be able to join the conversation of three very different people who are united by the reality that God’s kingdom is available to all. I love it when the sweetness of life in Jesus brims over as the dialogue flows between Nathan, Richella, and Tom.
Give FiF a listen, you’ll keep coming back for more!
