My mission is one in the same of that of Karis Church in Jefferson City. Karis exists to be a gospel centered community on mission that is for the city and for the kingdom of God. We seek to be a community of believers, sharing life with one another as a family with the mission of taking the gospel as a community into our city, loving her in word and deed. I cannot say that I was originally joyous about moving to Jefferson City all those years ago, and the circumstances leading up to my life at current were not ones anyone would consider desirable but as I have sought growth in love with my Father God at Karis Church, the Lord has molded my heart to love this city and the inhabitants within. I want nothing more than to pursue her with the same love that Christ poured out for his children on the cross. The means in which I intend to further this goal is through the Karis Internship.
The mission of the Karis Internship is to train leaders in the Gospel in the context of the local church through theological instruction, hands on ministry experience, and intentional shepherding by the leaders in the church. The supreme goal of this internship being the fulfillment of the Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and teaching them to follow after Jesus. May God’s Glory be magnified!
I am gathering together a team of people to join me in this journey by sponsoring me and giving me support specifically in the area of prayer and finance. I need the grace of others to meet a goal that is far greater than my ability, or any individual’s ability for that matter, to achieve. I need people in my life for encouragement, so that in times of despair I will not give up. I need people for prayer on my behalf, that God would equip me with skill and discipline and an ever growing faith in his strength through hardship and an ever renewing love for the Gospel. And I need people for the blessing of financial support. Because of the nature of the Karis internship, I will not be able to maintain a full time job during the 2 years enrolled, giving me a need in finance for everyday life. I need the grace of others in every area mentioned, not just one or two. I need support in encouragement and prayer just as much as I need support in finance.
Financially speaking I am asking if you would be willing to commit to sponsoring me financially by the means of a monthly recurring gift, significant to your financially ability, for the duration of the Karis Internship or for as long as you can manage. We use a service called Giving Fire at Karis Church that makes giving easy and you can even set up automatic scheduled payments. If this is something you have prayed about and feel lead by the Holy Spirit to support, then follow the page titled “How To Give” above for more information on how to do just that, also feel free to contact me for more information.
I am also asking for your support in encouragement and prayer. I will be posting new subjects that you can be praying along with regularly in my blog and you are wlcome to send me any kind of encouraging words via the email found under the page titled “Contact”.
So I ask, will you join me on this mission to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to Jefferson City and beyond? Please feel free to ask as many questions as you like about myself, the Karis Internship and Karis Church. May God be glorified!
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
