I have some exciting news to share - in just a little over 2 months I will heading up North to serve pastors and churches in Calgary, Alberta. My wife and I first got to travel to Calgary in 2008 and again in 2011 to serve alongside our good missionary friends to run soccer camps in Cranston and Lake Chaparral. We fell in love with Calgary and we have longed to travel back to this area of Canada.
10 years since my first trip to Alberta, I am fortunate to have been selected as 1 of 30 church communication professionals to serve pastors and churches in Calgary. Being part of the select team of 30 church communication professionals is an honor and privilege. I have yet to take any of my previous trips for granted. We have served Albany - New York, Northwest Arkansas, Anchorage - Alaska, Baltimore - Maryland, Boise - Idaho, Burlington - Vermont, Bozeman - Montana... and now we are going on our first international trip; Calgary, Alberta - Canada. The most rewarding thing is the opportunity to care for pastors and come alongside them and equip them with sustainable resources for their Greater Kingdom mission they have been called to (specifically web hosting and custom WordPress websites)
I would like to humbly come before you and seek your partnership to offset my personal expenses associated with this mission trip. While I may not be helping impoverished children of Haiti, I am nonetheless, on a mission trip to help under-resourced churches with our northern neighbors.
Quick Stats & Facts:
Calgary is currently Canada's fastest growing city. In fact, for the past decade, it has consistently been one of the top 10 fastest growing cities in all of North America. But there's another side to Stampede City. Only 5.2 percent of its 1.5 million residents claim to believe in Jesus Christ. And with only one evangelical church for every 10k people, there’s a long way to go in reaching Calgary for Christ. However, the best days are ahead.
The Need & Your Participation:
1. Prayer - More than anything, I request PRAYER. Both for the pastors and my fellow church creative missionaries that will be traveling great distances to minister and equip the Church.
2. Financial - I seek partners to make this trip a success. Each person has to personally raise their own money to offset a participation fee and personal travel expenses.
I ask for prayerful consideration and your partnership (personal, church, business or ministry).
Thanks for your friendship and many blessings.
