Take time to consider how God is calling you to give to support our mission of bringing living hope to hurting teens.
I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support that has been shown to me and this idea to which God has called me. I thank you for the ways in which you have affirmed this calling up to this point and I am humbled as I go about the next phase of this journey to bring hope to as many hurting youth as God puts in my path.
My desire is for you to see this ministry as a chance to sow generously with whatever resources God has given you. Like it says in 2 Corinthians 9:7 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver”. One of my favorite preachers spoke on this topic this past Sunday so if you have some time, listen to his sermon here: “Committed to Giving“
The proposed budget for the remainder of 2015 is around $25,000. This is a significant amount of money, and considering the amount of work that needs to be done to get this ministry off the ground by the fall, we could really benefit from people like you partnering with us to make this mission possible! If you are anything like me, it helps to have larger goals broken down into smaller parts, so I can see that it is achievable. So let me break this goal down for you:
Let’s say 100 people are willing to contribute any certain amount towards the goal. If we break it down by monthly recurring donations we could come very close to our goal if the following were to happen:
5 people give $250 monthly
20 people give $100 monthly
75 people give $10 monthly
I know most people don’t have the resources to give hundreds of dollars a month, so I pray that you find it encouraging that even if you were part of the vast majority that gives just $10 a month, you would be making a significant contribution to bringing hope to the youth of Lower Bucks County. Of course there is no set amount required for giving, and it doesn’t have to be recurring every month if that doesn’t work best for you. So keep these things in mind as you think and talk to God about the opportunity to give to the mission of Hope for Youth. My prayer is that through your contribution, God would supply your increase in order for even more glory to be given to Him!

If you need more information from me before you make your commitment, please feel free to reach out to me! I am easiest to reach by email, but I can give you my phone number if texting or calling is preferable to you. I thank God for you often and I am grateful for the role you are playing in this ministry!
Peace in Him,
