I pray you are covered with grace and peace in this season. I’m writing this letter to share with you what God has been doing and will potentially do in my life, and to invite you to join me in His working this next year.
I moved to Northwest Arkansas in August to begin a residency program at Cross Church called the School of Ministry. During this year I will be working alongside the church staff and 13 others in CCSM. I specifically will be with the student ministry at the Fayetteville campus, where I will get ministry training and experience through working at the church, taking class, and going on global mission trips (Lord willing).
I’m so excited for this year as I know I will get to grow in my love for Jesus, others, and using the gifts He’s given me to serve the Church. We will be working diligently throughout the year to learn and navigate how to do ministry in the middle of COVID-19 while also taking three different mission trips globally. Due to the state of the world we are unsure where these places will be. However, we are trusting that the Lord will give us opportunities to travel.
That being said, I ask that you partner with us in two ways:
1) Pray: Pray that myself and the rest of CCSM will grow in this time to become ministers who want to bring God glory and unity in the Church. Pray that we have no other desire but Jesus. Pray that we would be diligent in our studies so we can be more effective in our ministry areas. And also pray that COVID-19 wouldn’t prevent us from travelling to other parts of the world and country to share Jesus with others.
2) Give: While we do need prayer, we also need people to give so that we can go. I am looking to raise $5,000 to cover all three trips for the year. All gifts are tax deductible if you follow the procedures listed below. I fully believe this is where God has placed me to grow in the next year. Any contribution is welcomed and appreciated.
Thank you for taking your time to read, pray, and give. I am thanking God in advance for I know that He is faithful to provide for the cause of the gospel. I will keep you updated throughout the year as I grow and learn in CCSM. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
