Bring a Friend
Every aspect of the Celebration directs believers toward prayer—determined, heartfelt, ceaseless prayer. Please pray for the local Celebration team leaders, as well as Will Graham and his family. Most importantly let’s pray that the word of the Lord be spread throughout Sudbury.

You have to be 18 years old for the majority of volunteer positions, however there are some volunteer opportunities for teens that are younger than this.
How many volunteers do you need for the Celebration?
The Celebration with Will Graham is a series of events that take place over an 8-10 month period. The number of volunteers positions needed varies for each event ranging from 10 – 300+.
Can I volunteer with a friend and serve in the same shift? Can we volunteer as a small group?
Yes, as long as we still have room for everyone! Please have each person in your group fill out a volunteer application and then send them in together requesting that you serve together. Please indicate on your correspondence with us who the leader of the group is.
Our training is rooted in the Christian Life and Witness Course (CLWC) for adults and FM419 for youth. These are the best opportunities you have to become equipped for a Celebration as well as a lifetime of evangelism and discipleship.
Christian Life and Witness Course
CLWC will reignite your faith and empower you to live a life that radiates God’s love. Discover the victory He has for His children and equip yourself to share it with others through this dynamic course. You’ll also find practical help in reaching the next generation for Christ. The course is taught by a representative of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.
FM419 is specifically designed for youth. Youth from across the region will gather for a session of music and life-changing training. Get down to the basics of what you believe, find power to live what you say, and learn how to share your faith with others.
“Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (Matthew 4:19)
In John 1:40-42a (NIV) we read, “Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.”
‘Like Andrew, those of us who have a personal relationship with Christ must seek out those in our lives who don’t know Jesus, and bring them to Him’. The Bring a Friend initiative encourages us to faithfully pray for, and intentionally strengthen these relationships.
The ‘Bring a Friend’ initiative encourages you to:
Write down the name of someone you know who needs Jesus and then pray each day for him or her. Ask God to open their heart and give you opportunities to share His love with them.
Spend time with your friend. Grab a cup of coffee or attend an event together. It can deepen your friendship and create an opportunity to talk about Christ. Begin to talk with your friend about attending the Celebration outreach weekend with you.
Bring your friend to the event. If he or she responds to Christ or begins to show interest in the Gospel, they will need your ongoing encouragement. (And if they don’t respond, continue to love and pray for them.)
Invite them to church with you. God can use you and your church to bring them into a deepening relationship with Jesus.
