God is leading me to do something radically different, to take a step of faith, and join the Circuit Rider Experience this fall! CR Experience is a 7-month Bible training program in Huntington Beach, California, with the Circuit Riders and Youth With A Mission (YWAM). This training brings together evangelists, students, missionaries, musicians, and artists to work on innovative projects to reach America with the love and gospel of Jesus (www.CRMovement.com).
CR EXPERIENCE IS ABOUT MAKING JESUS FAMOUS IN OUR GENERATION!
The Circuit Riders specifically focus on reaching the campuses of America. We will be doing a 3-month outreach at the end of this time, where we tour major universities across America and host gospel events. The CR Experience is also a certified DTS (Discipleship Training School) which will open the door for me to work with YWAM anywhere in the world if God leads me to later down the line. I would love to invite you partner with me in this mission and help send me to this training!
Evangelism, discipleship, and worship ministry have always been the strongest passions in my life, and I feel that these are areas that God has gifted me in. For the past 3 years, I have been leading worship and serving on the worship team at our church and at a college group. I want to continue to grow and “fan into flame the gift of God” that is in me, as Paul exhorts Timothy in 2 Tim 1:6. For this reason, I have applied to be a part of the music track of the DTS and hope to use my gift of music in the context of evangelism and to bring glory to the name of Jesus on the college campuses of America.
This 7-month training will also equip me with the following skill sets:
- Learn to walk in a life of deep personal devotion and discipline out of love to God
- Learn how to effectively share the gospel in a variety of ways
- Learn to become a confident and impactful communicator in a variety of settings
- Learn how to disciple a new believer in the ways of Jesus
- Learn to plan and implement gatherings on university campuses
The DTS starts October 1st, 2017 and goes to April 30th, 2018. That is really soon! Yikes! It’s kind of crazy! But I am so excited for what God will be doing in the next season. I really believe this is God’s next step for me—to be further equipped in leading worship and in evangelism. I would so appreciate your prayers as I embark on this new adventure with Jesus! Pray most of all for souls to be saved and for God to be glorified. The next generation is such an important group to reach. I would also appreciate your prayers that I would trust in the Lord for His provision and guidance in every step, walk in His Spirit more and more, and be bold to share the gospel—like Paul said, “that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel” (Ephesians 6:19).
This is a big step of faith for me, especially since all of this is happening so quickly. But I strongly believe that “where God guides, God provides.” I know that He has called me to this, and I know He is faithful to provide a way. Nothing is too hard for Him! (Jeremiah 32:17). More than anything else, I deeply value your support through prayers and encouragement. If you do feel led by the Lord to support me financially, that would be an incredible blessing, whether through one-time gifts or monthly support for tuition, housing, travel, and food costs. One time donations are always a blessing, even if it's just $5-- but the benefit of monthly supporters is being able to have a consistent budget, allowing me to really focus on evangelism, discipleship, and all that God has for me to do during this training. Living in Southern California is expensive, but the GLORY AND TRUTH that God is pouring out on the West Coast is the reason why we are there!

Grace & peace,
