Friends & Family,
I hope all is well with you and your family and you are learning to manage the new way of living within the world. Recently I had the opportunity to graduate from the University of Arkansas with my BA in Communication. I will be continuing my calling to ministry leadership through post grad studies along with working within the local church.
I wanted to take a moment and share with you my next steps as I continue in ministry. For the next year I will be working with Kids Ministry here in Fayetteville, AR at Cross Church Fayetteville Campus. I will be doing this through attending the School of Ministry. School of Ministry is a one-year ministry residency where I gain hands on experience while earning academic credit to my master’s degree.
This is going to be a year full of growth as the Lord leads me and prepares me for ministry and church leadership. A part of the hands-on experience that we will be receiving is through mission trips. We will travel to serve on two domestic and one international mission trip during my time here at the School of Ministry. Due to Covid-19 those locations, as of now, are still unknown. I will be updating my team as I continue to find out more information. I am excited to see what God is going to roll out in my life throughout the next year.
As I continue on this journey, I am asking for your partnership in two ways:
1. Pray: Please be in prayer for me I continue to be groomed by the Holy Spirit and through the people God has placed in my life during this season. Pray that my mind will be sharpened with new knowledge learned. Lastly, pray for all of the people that I come into contact with as I continue to minister around Northwest Arkansas, America, and the World.
2. Give: As part of the mission trip training, I am raising money to cover the costs of my mission trips. The average cost of travel per student is $5,000. This is a journey God has called me to and I appreciate any partnership donation. If you feel led to give, you can give on my fundraising page. All financial gifts are tax-deductible.
Thank you for reading this letter! I will keep you updated throughout the year as to the training and experience I am getting at the Cross Church School of Ministry. If you have any questions, please let me know. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
