2024 GALA



Thank you for making our first gala, "Around The World", so special. Nearly 200 people showed up eager to learn about what God is doing in the nations and get a glimpse of a few things we are looking forward to invest in over the next year, specifically planting new churches and training leaders! The feeling was pretty electric!


We were blessed to hear from our special guests Abhijit Nayak about India & Francis Njogu about Tanzania, and Brittany & I were honored to share as well about our recent time to Rwanda & the Philippines.


HUGE shoutout to all of our sponsors & table hosts who helped cover the costs of the evening in order for so many people to come for free and ensure that 100% of the proceeds go toward the cause, as well as the MANY volunteers who came together from the earliest stages of planning to the very end of the evening cleaning up. You are my heroes!


Collectively, you gave $24,000 in one time gifts and 8 individuals have joined our monthly giving community (aka The Circle) for a total of $595 / month! Amazingly that also means 50+ people donated for the first time! I want to celebrate that wonderful milestone with you and also encourage you to keep the momentum going this week before the link closes!



SOUTH ASIA: We have already identified a church plant in need of support in the state of Assam, strategically placed in the northeastern tip of India near Bhutan and Myanmar (Burma). The Pastor (we are protecting his name & photo for safety) comes from a Hindu family who converted to Christianity. His vision is to reach out to the Boro and Santali people groups who are unreached and help them discover the love of Jesus. We have already begun our recurring support of $350/month, and we hope to visit this church in the next year if possible. If you have a heart for India & reaching unreached areas for Jesus, please consider praying with us, signing up to support them monthly as well, and potentially going on a vision trip in 2025.

RWANDA: Pastor Pacifique and the team in Rwanda are experiencing explosive growth and are actively making plans to start a new community + outreach center and larger church facility. Our goal was to send finances to help pour the concrete foundation for this project. The funds have already been sent and they are now working on a groundbreaking ceremony to take place in the next few weeks! We'll keep you updated.

PHILIPPINES: As we expressed at the gala, there is already a church that has been planted that we got to visit in April in an area called Sorsogon. The property they were meeting at under a large tree has now been taken from them as the landlord plans to develop it in the near future. By God's grace they identified a plot of land nearby where they will build a church structure and begin building a student center and much more! We are beyond blessed to report that we sent funds to them and they have already met with a surveyor to plot out the boundaries of the land and are purchasing it right now!

TANZANIA: Francis Njogu did a fantastic job explaining how impactful our work has been at getting churches all around Northern Tanzania to meet and worship together. At the same time, we've discovered the need to train these pastors to deeply understand God's word as well as provide necessary retreats so that they can replicate a sustainable model of discipleship to the many other churches and villages across the Kilimanjaro region and beyond. Our goal is to impact 100 pastors and leaders over the next year. Mark Sherman (founder of Mosaic International) is leading a team starting Sunday June 16th and together in partnership with our Tanzanian team will begin with intentional outreaches to help communities with clean drinking water, sports outreaches, a pastor's gathering, home visits and a conference that will attract hundreds of people from the surrounding region. Stay tuned via email as well as social media, because we'll be showing you firsthand where the funds from the gala are going and the lives being impacted!

WANT TO BE PART OF THE ONGOING WORK THAT GOD IS UP TO? We strongly encourage you to join The Circle Giving Community! Our goal and prayer is for 50 new monthly donors to join this community. You can join for as little as $1/month however most people join between $30 - $300/month. Collectively we can make a long lasting, sustainable impact through our generosity! 

Thank you again for your prayers and generosity. We couldn't do this without you!


Better Together, 

Mark Sherman
