Faith is a gift from God that does not depend on any level of human intelligence.


Our program model encourages the development of one-on-one, personal, and meaningful relationships: true friendships.


We long for the day when people of all abilities are fully accepted—and expected—in the Body of Christ.

What People Say About Friendship

“I’ve learned so much about God [at Friendship]. I’ve learned that I’m never alone. I always have Jesus with me…and I always have other people who care about me too.”

A Friend from Iowa

It was amazing to pray with Kristen…. Although I did not completely understand Kristen’s words, I felt the presence of the Holy Spirit surround us. I learned the art of what Kristen and I can do together in ministry, instead of what I can do for Kristen.

Noel, Mentor

“We’ve used God, Our Father, Jesus, Our Savior, and when we realized we are coming to the end of The Spirit, Our Helper we just about died! We are really happy with this material, and pleased to find that more is available.”

Elsie, Group Leader
