WHAT IS "SERVANTS FRIENDS "?
Established in 2008, the "Servants Friends International Inc" is a group of like minded Charismatic Christian Communities that relate together for mutual support, encouragement and further development in the life of the Holy Spirit. Community life is often a difficult walk in the modern age and groups may benefit greatly from relationships with others who have a similar calling in Christ. The Federation was established by Joe & Julie Chircop after consultation with other Christian Community leaders. Joe & Julie have over 25 years experience as leaders in the Charismatic Renewal in Australia and have felt for some time that God was leading them to help develop other Christian groups. Joe is the founding elder of the Servants of Jesus Community, Sydney, Australia.
