This girl raised $800 for a church in India!

Screen Shot 2014-04-29 at 1.41.56 PMNothing is more exciting to me than a young leader. The Life Bridge youth group has been raising money to help build churches in India. Mostly this has been through offerings at Sunday night Encounter meeting. Megan, a teen in our student ministry, realized these churches weren’t going to get built off of the discretionary spending of teenagers. She wanted to go big. All on her own she organized a simple bake sale. She organized with the Life Bridge cafe leader, filled out publication request, organized volunteers and recruited cooks.
Megan went beyond the challenge, thought outside the box and took the initiative to get it done. She’s a leader and she led. All in all, she raised $800 to help an organization, on the other side of the world, introduce people she will never meet to Jesus!
If a teenage girl with limited experience and resources can make something like this happen, what could you accomplish?  Without church leaders giving you all the answers or organization how could you go beyond yourself and reach people with the love of God?

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
