Ministry Needs & Wishes


Ministry Needs & Wishes

We have had, in the past, blessings from God in the form of tangible item donations and financial blessings.  Since we do, from time to time, travel to various churches to lead worship – there are some needs and wants that we acquire.   Recently, God has blessed us with having our paths cross with a couple of individuals who have cared enough about our ministry to ask how they might be able to contribute. I am not naive enough nor bold enough to think that someone (other than God) could provide for all of these wants and needs – but if there are items listed that you may be in excess of, are no longer using, or can otherwise provide we would count it a huge blessing. Check back as this list may grow or shrink depending on circumstances.  We are vowing to leave each item up even if fulfilled and, instead, marking the entry with a “***” if it has been fulfilled.  This will allow us to return later and recount the many ways, however small, that God has blessed us. If you have questions, or can help provide for any of these needs or wishes, please contact [email protected] .

(Also: If you would like to help serve the local needs of the Worship/Creative Team at my home church – New Hope Church – please visit our Amazon Wish List here: )
