About Us

Mission Statement

FTFT!'s community service shares God's love with the forgotten, the elderly, the hungry, the sick, the homeless, and the imprisoned by showing them that hope exists. Because Love isn’t simply a feeling and because Love is strong and conquers all hardship, Love in action can feed, heal, shelter, and visit the least among our brothers and sisters.

FTFT! serves local communities in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, but does not limit its geographical reach to these local areas. While we envision future growth that will enable creating our own Coptic youth-centered initiatives, until that day comes we will use many existing organizations to facilitate the service.

Public Relations

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. (Ephesians 5:1) We were called to imitate Christ and be His ambassadors to the world. While the whole FTFT! organization will strive to be examples of Christian living, the Public Relations group is specifically mandated to create and foster public awareness of Christ and His Church. To this end, we hold special events to plant seeds of interest in the hearts of the people who may not know the riches of our Church. Finally, the Public Relations group represents FTFT! in dialogues with the clergy, other organizations, and the public. "And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me." Matthew 25:40

Why Volunteer?

We could tell you that it's important to volunteer and serve the most needy amongst your brothers and sisters because Christ commanded or because the Bible tells us to volunteer and serve. But you know that already. We could tell you that it's time to turn that knowledge into action, time to turn all those sunday school lessons and lectures that we've heard so many times from words into work.

But we won't tell you that. We're not preachers.
What we will tell you though, is that it's fun. It's amazing. It's the best time you can have. You'll be with other Christian brothers and sisters having the time of your lives. Trust us. And if you don't, ask anyone who's ever been to an FTFT! event. FTFT! is about using your Free Time and turning it into Fun Times, Friendship Times, and Fellowship Times.  Ok. Ok. We're a little corny. But serving isn't corny. If you try it once and you don't agree, then you can write us an email telling us. And then never FTFT! again.

But take a chance. Do something different. For yourself and for someone else!
