for Jonathan Martin
Jonathan Martin with Mercy Hill Church - Greensboro, NC
If you all didn't already know, last summer I participated in City Project with Mercy Hill Church and it was an unbelievable, eye opening 8 weeks. This summer, I have the incredible opportunity to serve as a City Project Intern. City Project is an eight week discipleship program, that introduces college students to different missional opportunities and begins to train them to be disciples who make disciples for Christ. City Project begins with the students going to New York City to engage with Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Buddhist people groups. Then in the middle of the summer, students will live in Greensboro where they will be receiving practical, theological, and ministry training through weekly talks. During this time the students will learn to effectively share the gospel and serve the community of Greensboro, NC in response to the gospel through internships with local ministries and organizations in Greensboro. During the last two weeks of the summer, the students and I will get to travel abroad to serve in an international context alongside of Mercy Hill Church Planters.
This summer will be an opportunity for me, by God’s grace, to help point other college students to Jesus so that they can follow Him and grow to be disciples who make disciples. I would like to challenge you to consider investing in the spiritual growth of college students around the nation through your prayer and financial support. Your seed will not stop with just helping me grow, but it will also allow other college students to do the same and ultimately continue spreading God’s fame throughout the world. I truly believe that this summer and support is bigger than you and I, it is about partnering with God to be a part of the work he wants to do through college students in the triad and in the nations. As you think of me over the next couple of months, pray that I would be preparing for how the Lord is going to use myself and my fellow interns this summer and pray that I would rely on the Lord to provide what is needed to make this summer a reality.
For this summer, I will be responsible to raise $2500 in order to participate in the project. I would love your financial support and pray you will give generously. The biggest part of my support is due by April 22, 2017. If you can assist me financially (amounts of $25, $50, $100 or any other amount you are able to contribute), checks should be made payable to Mercy Hill Church. Be sure to enclose the included form with your check. My name should not be written in the memo line of the check. Instead, City Project should be written on the memo line.
