Christian Friends Connexion is a not for profit corporation under the oversight of Godís Way Ministries and exists to consult with churches in need of help to overcome obstacles or take better advantage of opportunities. 

Additionally, we have started to emphasize ministries to the 50 plus generations, including major musical events called "A Time to Remember", a weekly radio program entitled "Worth Remembering" and both the challenge and assistance for the upper generations to continue in meaningful missions and ministries.

The Gospel Lads were organized in Southern California in 1967 and have done radio and TV ministry, concerts, revivals, crusades, banquets, college events, conventions, conferences and fairs in addition to church worship services, both domestically and abroad.
