YFBRC, an accountability dependent system, provides a framework in a virtual environment to help you to cultivate a disciplined, and intentional reading and learning habit with deep understanding of the Word.
YOU take full responsibility of your own action. It is your desire, to commit yourself as a reader to complete reading the whole Bible.
HOLY SPIRIT is the 3rd person in this coaching relationship. YFRBC encourages readers to give E.A.R. to the Holy Spirit, besides co-create a safe and trustworthy relationship between you and i, as coach and coachee. E.A.R. means
You are harnessing the power of these relationships and the presence of coaching to make things happen in your life ! It is up to you to recognise and use it for your benefit.
* Individuals * New believers(immediately) * Sunday Schools * Uniform groups * Cell groups * Mission Team * Discipleship class * Young adult * Worship Team * Welcoming Team * Pastoral Team * Congregations from different services. * And other ministries
An interested entity can hire YFBRC as a service provider, as an extended arm of the Christian organisation. Akin hiring an extra one staff(or a team for big group) of the entity to focus or ensuring the body of Christ is spiritually fed, regularly, on their own desire. And not spoon fed. Reading plan can be customised to the organisation's recommendation on seasonal topics, Bible versions, languages and etc.(However, YFBRC strongly recommends YFBRC own arranged reading plan).
1. Copy the following and paste it on your messaging app...
Hi there, have you ever finished reading a Bible ? i have found a website which provides a friendly and personal coach who encourages, and disciples you on how to complete reading the Word, and much more. You just have to check this out ! Here is the website : https://www.charleskwtan.com/friendlycoachyfbrc
2. Click on the social media icon of your choice at the beginning page of this website, and share this website with your friends or relatives.
God shows me many things when i read His Word. My unselfish intention is to tell the world.But God is saying, otherwise.(Read on. Once again, the upside world of God reveals). You will understand from my conversation with Him.
"How i wish i can tell these things You teach me to the rest of people i know and do not know," i dreamed.
"They have to look for it, just as the disciples eagerly willing to let Jesus into the boat during the storm. Stop pampering them with secrets that they are not looking for. If they are interested, they will know what to do. Many have taken Me for granted. i want them to journey with Me*, like you do, Charles. The impact will not be deep if you just spoon feed them with food belongs to you." God in His infinite wisdom revealed.
"Can you stop being anxious of nothing, Charles ? i have asked reader E to remind you with Phi 4:6-7. Have peace to implement the membership site." God gently rebuked me.
*God is a personal God. He wants you all to Himself.
I AM the Lord your God... Exo 20:2
(Knowing His characters is important for your relationship with Him)
Nowadays, knowledge is in abundance. It can be acquired everywhere from the virtual world. In YFBRC, you are paying for filtered, targeted, personalised revelation/ knowledge + guidance + human presence; nevertheless, FREE plan is given.
Next, we do not want money to be an obstacle for YFBRC to grow and break new barriers.
Money is an amazing tool to extend the kingdom of God, if it is used according to God's will without selfish manipulation, without distorting its Godly and original intent.
His Word did not say money is the root of evil, BUT the love of money is.
For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10 (NLT)
So that you know where the charges go, YFBRC uses what you pay to pay for hosting this website, permission to retain this domain name, months of past and future crazy man hours of creating, developing, upgrading and maintaining this site, which YFBRC have been self-supporting for the last 4 years. YFBRC has an urgent mission to accomplish. Besides, with no fixed financial support, i am trusting God to take care of my family's needs while focus on executing His mission.
As it is urgent, your financial support will help me to speed up the materialisation of future plans closer, to pioneer new territories and to go to the ends of the earth or the uttermost parts of the world, with another tool called, technology. A destined combination of these tools and the right people who practices Godly culture, the work of God is unstoppable ! (If God permits, there may be future paid positions to be filled in this outreach. Would not it be great to earn and live out God's plan at the same time ? BIBLE PROJECT is one great example to emulate that provide such employment).
Besides, based on experience working with considerate clients from other projects, i found that client will not want to trouble me for extra things for free, or sound demanding. They would rather pay and get the service.
YFBRC look ahead and move forward in serving the existing community and new members, more effectively, by raising the standard of this outreach, both spiritually and technologically.
For 4 years(2016-2020), by faith, it has been self supportive. Financially, i depend on God's provision through my projects, not to forget my wife's help.
Readers know themselves better than any one else, YFBRC can only propose 4 different options. A reader can choose one that fits them. Therefore, based on the plans; 1 plan is free and the other 3 plans are chargeable. The subscription price is charged per month per person, paid through internet banking. If it is not FREE plan, discounted corporate rate will be offerred to group coaching.
Many of the work have been done free of charge, e.g., as of current technology, despite its earlier prepared backbones, it takes me more than 30 minutes to prepare each web app, even if it is for 1 new member, regardless if it is a FREE or paid plan, as i take comfort and believe readers will use during their journey with God. i hope readers will not take it for granted but use it to keep their footprint in a safe place for many years to come. And as LEGACY that can later be passed on to beneficiaries.
We may pray, quote and talk the Christian lingo and do the Christians things, but have Christians even ask themselves what is God's will ? Christians cannot begin to understand the will of God, unless they read, understand, response obediently by being and doing the Word of God. If you can resonate with this belief that ingrained in the mindset of YFBRC, you will understand the need for this service.
i am a born again Christian, with a story to tell, and a passion to impact the world.
i am on a mission to promote Christ-likeness/ transformation through a relationship with the Word.
Short version ...consider my
BEING : belief(vision, goal, mission), values, experience, credential
DOING : building website, creating, developing processes, establishing communities, harnessing of passion, integrating technologies.
CAUTION : My being and doing are not meant to compare with anyone, do not fall into the trap of the master of diversion. They are meant to do the will of God, get the job done and meet the vision, goal and mission. They are meant to inspire you and glorify God. If a wretched being like me can, you can. You are equally unique and special as i am in the eyes of God. You and i can do things beyond even our imagination, all for the glory of God - Ephesians 3:20
COACHES & TEACHERS
Despite this verse,
Dear brothers and sisters, not many of you should become teachers in the church, for we who teach will be judged more strictly.
James 3:1 NLT,
Our teachers and i understand clearly that all teachers of the Word
will be judged differently than others. Though, humanly, we may be risking our lives to punishment for wrong teaching, our conscience is clear. We trust in God the Holy Spirit abundant guidance and leading. We just need to be obedient.
PEOPLE WHOM WE ARE INFLUENCING
You must not take YFBRC words and deeds as Gospel truth, you must be like the Bereans. Not only in YFBRC, but also take this same Berean spirit with you everywhere you go.
And the people of Berea were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, and they listened eagerly to Paul’s message. They searched the Scriptures day after day to see if Paul and Silas were teaching the truth.
Acts 17:11 NLT
Therefore, reading the Word on your own and engaging the Holy Spirit as your Teacher are KEY to having the right spiritual diet. Human beings are fallible, James 3:2, meaning capable of making mistakes or being wrong (Google dictionary), myself, pastors and Christians leaders are not exceptional, but the Word of God is infallible. Hebrew 6:18, Proverbs 30:5, Psalm 18:30.
One more thing, no one is indispensable. Without YFBRC, God can still use others to meet His unstoppable plans in these LAST DAYS.
No, i am not a pastor. i am a guy with a passion for the Word and mission to help Christians gain access to eternal life. Yes, it is disturbing. Not all Christians will go to heaven based on the parable of the 10 bridesmaids as illustrated by Jesus Christ.
Oh yes, i find this question, "Which church do you go to?" divisive, but people have valid reason for fear of cult origin. Therefore, i am from the world's largest Pentecostal denomination.
Next, not all, but for those who trust credential, i am a trained coach in the essentials of leadership coaching from an ICF(International Coaching Federation) accredited Christian coaching institute from the United States. No, they do not teach me about Bible reading coaching, but general life coaching. i am applying coaching techniques for God's work.

i can only know what to improve based on my interaction with the user interface of this website or anything about my products and services, as there are, perhaps, other scenarios i may not be aware, this is where users' feedback is welcome.
Constructive feedback is ALWAYS welcome. It is YFBRC culture of continuous improvement. Please do not hesitate to ask directly for help. i am here for you, readers. 😊 (i am accountable to God on how this outreach is run😅 that is how serious i treat this outreach).
The success of this ambitious attempt cannot be possible without the constructive feedback of members from this community or perhaps others. Therefore, every time you submit a feedback form, it will go straight into my inbox. i will review feedback and make the necessary changes, if God permits.
i would like to take this opportunity to thank the contributors, in advance, for your selfless, generous and valuable comments & ideas for improvements; all for the benefits of this community and glory to God.
i thank God for direction to move, encouragement to persevere, inspiration to create and wisdom to apply. Without Him, i am nothing. i owe the continuity of YFBRC to God and people whom He has brought before my path since Sept 2016.
To the community,
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU for trusting me,
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU for trusting the process,
A HEARTFELT THANK YOU for allowing me to live out as an instrument of God’s purpose to serve you.
Some church friends, and many "strangers from Berean" and many who understand the Good Shepherd illustration by Jesus Christ, for being wise and not gullible and for believing with me in this work that God has initiated in me. Thank you for accepting me as your friend, and i hope you have benefited from our friendship. Members, partners and teachers/watchmen, thank you for your encouragement, it drives me to work harder.
Your consistency and perseverance in reading are noteworthy.
Your achievement deserves celebration.
i would also like to thank my wife, for her amazing ability to tolerate my extreme-focused-me for sitting at the same place working on this and other projects for months. She has been amazingly resilient to move on with life whenever hit by storms of life. She has helped me to take care of many things and the kids in the house while i soak myself in works. She has also helped me to vet through some of my works. Thankful to have her as my soulmate.
Last but not the least, let’s keep it going, keep on inviting, our journey is far from finish, for God has plenty in store to reveal, to teach and to transform you through a deep relationship with Him.
Charles KW Tan
(co-founder of YFBRC)
Yes, of course, you may, even though YFBRC promotes reading habit. Habit means doing a consistent activity.
Just to make sure you have come to the right place.
What is your #1 reason for joining YFBRC?
No, though highly recommended.
The basic thing is about accountability. You need to provide evidence of your reading to your coach. Examples of evidences are,
No, please do not do that for the sake of accountability. A verse that you choose is personal and sacred. If there is no verse, just check the no verse check box provided.
In short, S.O.A.P. is a self reflection journaling process with reference to God's Word. It is a comprehensive approach to the 3 parts that make up human being. The body to write, soul to understand and spirit to feed on the Word. Learning & training will be more effective when you involve all 3 parts. Likewise, if you use all 5 senses, you will get lasting learning experience. As for me, my S.O.A.P. is writing articles.
We do not learn through experience, we learn by reflecting on experiences.
Can you stop eating food?
But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 (NLT)
Unless there is a compelling reason, you can turn your reading to snooze mode until further notice.
We need to set boundaries, so to instill discipline and keep the well being of this community intact. Therefore, 🚩red flag is raised by the coach when reader has stopped reading for a long period of time. This may affect reader's membership if readers are not responsive to the messages from the coach.

I did not really know how to study God’s word. Read the Bible, yes, but study, was difficult for me. In T Class, we do a very detailed verse by verse study of God’s word. Lead by our great Teacher, the Holy Spirit and Bro Charles, who provoke our thinking by asking questions. i also learn from the sharing from others. The Holy Spirit leads, guides and gives me an in-depth understanding of God’s word.
We also learned through videos and Hebrew word study. I learned a lot from the class and the weekly takeaways (AHA moments) which place emphasis on lessons learned.
So I want to thank Bro Charles who sacrifices his precious time weekly and being so passionate about God’s word, as he guides us through the studying of God’s word.
