Leaving this one up to God…and you.
Just as the title suggests…I am putting this one up to God…and you. These past few days have been very trying. Okay – scratch that – the past few weeks have been trying. The one thing that I have found holds true is that my calling in life is to be a Worship Leader. I’m called out to serve in worship…as I have done for some time. There is one missing piece, however…the educational aspect.
I have had some theology training, done online seminary in pursuit of a degree in Theology…I’ve even been as far as being Ordained to the ministry. The one thing I have not done…is actually complete a degree. My quest – my goal – is to get a degree in Worship Arts from an accredited seminary. My issue is the cost. Seminary will cost me a tad bit over $2,800 – but that is from start to finish and includes books. I have other financial issues at work (or…not at work as the case may seem) that would dictate that most every bit of money I have coming in goes to provide for my family. For that reason…it becomes almost impossible for me to raise the funds to go to seminary.
- DONATE : Even if it is $5, $10, $20, $100 … would you consider donating any amount to help me reach my goal? I know that I cannot do it on my own. I cannot promise you anything that you will be guaranteed to personally receive for a donation…but I can offer my extreme gratitude and my commitment to engage this degree in the fullest. (To donate, please click the “Donate” button at the bottom of this post. This is handled via PayPal … so your payments are secure.)
- SPREAD THE WORD : Word of mouth may help me. There may be someone out there…one of my initial readers…who may decide to drop a donation that nearly covers the amount in full. If that happens…then AWESOME. The chances are not likely. If 100 people, however, gave only $10.00 … then I am more than a third of the way to my goal. There is strength in numbers – and I am counting on as much strength as possible. You can use the icons below this post to tweet it, facebook share it, digg it, email it…whatever you wish. All I ask is that you help me spread the word.
Whatever you choose to help me with…understand that I sincerely appreciate it. Please believe that it has taken a mountain worth of pride to even humble myself to ask. I am open for any questions you may have. Feel free to drop me a line using the contact form on my contact page above.
Thank you, in advance, for your assistance and prayers.
