COVID-19 Policies:  Calvary Baptist Church (and Friendship Force Denver) are still following City and County of Denver guidelines which means that people who are not fully vaccinated should wear a mask inside the building.  We will not be checking vaccine cards, so you are on the honor system.  We will have tables that are spaced widely, so you can sit by yourself if you choose to do so.  We will not be serving refreshments or snacks, but you are welcome to bring drinks and snacks for yourself or to share.    If you have any questions or concerns, please call FFD President Gerry Forney at 303-653-3475 or email:


Experience the World 
Friendship Force

Become a Host   

One of the best ways to promote global understanding across the barriers that separate people is to host an ambassador in your home. Show them your community, city, country and culture, and learn about theirs over meals, laughter, and shared experiences.

Travel the world   

Be welcomed into someone’s home. Immerse yourself in their local culture. Invite travelers

from other places into your own home and proudly share your culture with them.

Since 1977, the travel exchange movement pioneered by Friendship Force International has given people the unique opportunity to connect

in ways that transcend boundaries to promote goodwill, respect, and understanding.

This kind of intimate, life changing experience may not be for everyone, but for thousands of Friendship Force members worldwide, the personal relationships we’ve established are a powerful and authentic way to impact positive change and empathy around the world.


 Become an ambassador of the

 Friendship Force today.

Explore: We explore new  countries and regions. We explore new cultures and  new ways to connect across  the barriers that separate us.

Understand: By sharing a  home, meals, conversation  and everyday experiences,  people become friends,  seeing beyond governments and borders into the heart of  a country and its people. By combining home hospitality  with cultural exploration, we reach a new level of understanding.

  Serve: Exploration leads to  understanding. Understanding leads to an  acceptance of our common  humanity and the desire to  serve 

our global village –  with words and actions.

Lessons From The

Four separate cancer diagnoses that found him battling both Hodgkin’s lymphoma and acute lymphocytic leukemia; 54 total months of treatments including radiation, chemotherapy, and a bone marrow transplant; and finally, a life-restoring heart transplant.

It is this health odyssey, begun in 1989, which has set the course for Kyle’s life.  A journey that took him across the triathlon finish line for the first time ever in 2007 – just eleven months out from heart transplant – and has taken him all the way to Kona, Hawaii, (twice) for the Ironman World Championship, where he became the first heart transplant recipient to ever compete.
