Matching Fund UPDATE

January 13, 2023

$86,634 in Discipleship Funds Raised!

THANK YOU to all who responded to our $50K Matching Fund Opportunity.  We are so pleased to tell you that $86,634 in funds came in.  $50,000 of those funds were matched, so that means a total of $136,634 was raised to support the mission of Influencers, which is:

To encourage and influence individuals toward an abiding relationship with Jesus Christ, through a journey to spiritual intimacy.

And God keeps expanding our vision for just who those individuals might be.  They are not just men, they are not just Americans…He is truly inviting us to bring this process of The Journey to the world.

As we said before, this will help us with projects like these:

    • Translation projects to make The Journey available to new people groups.
    • New Media projects which will help us tell our story to a broader audience.  We are starting a new initiative called “Journey Productions.”
    • Funding a new staff person to help with administrative details of a growing ministry.
    • Publishing hardcopies of The Journey curriculum in Spanish.

So, thank you again to those of you who had the ability and a willing heart to be a part of funding God’s vision.  We are encouraged!

Influencers Development Statement

We believe God created Influencers and anointed us to Make Disciples.  We believe He wants to take this Ministry and the Journey process to the ends of the earth so that His children will learn to Abide in Him and so that He can set them free to serve Him fully.  We believe He will fund the needs of this ministry so that we might fulfill His calling.  We believe He will move the hearts of individuals who have the ability to donate passionately and generously to this Vision.  We will Abide in Him, we will pray fervently, we will follow His Spirit and we will Trust Him absolutely with the plans of this ministry.  We will not limit God by our intellect, our experience or our expectations.  We will share the blessings of this ministry by asking our participants to help meet the needs we encounter.   We will live by Faith.
