If you read our Executive Director’s update, you’ll have a unique understanding of how we view ministry partnership. It’s not just Tony going into the Cougars dressing room to run chapel. You’re in there too! It’s not just Christine and her amazing group of volunteers running Youth Concert Band or Musical Theatre or the Moss Pit faith discussion group. You’re in there too!
Did you know that we depend 100% on generous donations from people like you? We do not receive government funding to run our programs. Both Christine and I raise 100% of our salaries. The Canada Summer Jobs grant that we have historically received to hire a summer student is in jeopardy this year. You may have heard in the media that there is a new attestation attached to the application which effectively makes faith-based organizations ineligible for funding (for more info, please contact me directly).
Can I encourage you to prayerfully consider increasing the impact of being “in there too”? You can become a monthly partner or send an additional financial gift. Donate today. Would you consider who among your family and friends would appreciate being “in there too”? Send them this newsletter, have them over for coffee while sharing this great partnership opportunity. Invite Tony to be there too; he would love to share our passion for youth with your friends.
Thank you for your partnership! Because of your prayers and financial support, we can – without fear – bring the gift of love, power and self-discipline to the youth we serve. Together, we are bringing lasting hope to youth. Together, we are helping them discover their potential. Together, we are making a difference!
