Happy New Year! We are so grateful for the friends of our ministry. Your prayers and partnership mean the world to us. Thank you!
We are reflecting on all the lives God changed through our ministry here in Portland this Fall, including the 15 students who gave their lives to Christ and looking forward expectantly to what He is going to do through our ministry this year. As I mentioned recently, we’re in the midst of transition to a broader ministry within Cru directed toward reaching and empowering Millennials (18-30 years olds) in Portland with the gospel. Less that 4% of this age group in the urban core of Portland know Jesus and we’re excited to pioneer a new ministry to help change this.
As we transition, Jody and I have prayerfully set a goal to raise $2000 of monthly support in 100 days, because of attrition and cost of living increase (taxes, children, etc.). We are working hard to connect with lots and lots of people and expand our team of ministry partners so we can jump back into the ministry of reaching young people for Christ..
We have two very specific needs that you might be able to help us with: The first is that we don’t know enough people to make this happen in a timely manner. Would you consider how you might be able to introduce us to some of your friends and family. Secondly if you have yet to partner financially with us by giving regularly, we’d like to invite you to consider partnering with us by giving $100 a month or some other amount. If you would like to connect with us on either of these please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Investments like yours keep us on mission, and we’d love for you to consider helping us reach 100% in 100 days so we can continue to reach the generation of millennials who don’t know Christ and connect the disconnected.
