This year has been an incredible journey leading up to this point. Since I was 17 I was intrigued with the idea of being a pastor, but as a seventeen year old I was intimidated but the radical lifestyle I would have to live. I went off to Cal Poly when I was 18 studying to do the next closest job I could think of; being a highschool history teacher. Two years of that led to me being incredibly unsatsfied with my life at college, feeling horribly depressed, and losing track of who God says I am. It became clear to me how much my desire to be a pastor was truly a calling that I could not take lightly. So I left Cal Poly and jumped full speed ahead into church ministry here in Sacramento. I fell in love with God in a way that consumed all my aspirations and dreams. My heart now, above all things, is crying for a move of the Holy Spirit that cannot be generated by hard work. It will be the inevitable byproduct of entire groups of empowered christian believers adopting a lifestyle of reckless abandon, living as radical servants who reflect God's love for the world. I believe we as a nation are on the brink of a church revival and I want to be a part of it. The Circuit Riders are an organization that lives by these tenants through and through, and I am beyond blessed to be a part of their 2018-2019 team. The first 3 months I will recieve thorough training at their base in Huntington Beach, and will then proceed to spend 5 months on tour going from college campus to college campus spreading the Gospel. My fundraising goal for this is 10,000 dollars and I will need everyone's help! it sounds like a big number but I truly believe that God multiplies finances. I want to extend my financial need as an opportunity for you to sow into the Kingdom of God. Consider that church is not a building, it is a people, and by supporting me you are making a declaration that the Gospel has the power to save, and that it is worth your investment. I am thankful for any donation of any amount, and if you want to continue supporting me while I am there, I also really appreciate recurring monthly payments of lesser amounts if that is easier for you. I am so astonished by others' generosity already and I want you to know that when you give, it speaks volumes to the goodness of God's provision, and the way the community around me supports and loves me. Thankyou for your support in advance. I will soon make a means of keeping everyone who supports me updated while I am with the Circuit Riders, so I will ensure that you stay in the loop!
