I have a lot to share…
God continues to refine the ministry of Ignite Purpose, as I coach individuals, churches, non-profits, and Christian business leaders in the search for their own God-given purpose. In 2022, I’ve worked with countless individuals, three churches, two local non-profits, and six Christian-owned business leaders, while planning four church conferences for almost 1,000 people and facilitating Ignite Purpose’s FIRST Men’s Retreat last October.
2022 Update • 2023 vision
Hello, and thanks for watching this Ignite Purpose 2022 update and 2023 vision video!
Not everyone is excited about metrics, but since many of you invest in this ministry, I wanted to let you know who you are helping. In 2022, I’ve worked with countless individuals, three churches, two local non-profits, and six Christian-owned business leaders, while planning four church conferences for almost 1,000 people and facilitating Ignite Purpose’s FIRST Men’s Retreat last October. I also created e-mail devotionals that were sent to over 700 people a week, while my videos were watched over 5000 times over the year. I even got to baptize a couple that have been in several of my marriage and parenting classes! I’m SO excited to see people and organizations get transformed as they leverage their resources to make God’s purpose come alive!
This year, God also allowed me to work closely with Pastor Mike Dean of Small Voice Ministries to launch his ministry in Loudoun County. In February, as I dealt with my own challenges stemming from the loss of my mom and a handful of other personal issues, I connected with Pastor Mike for counseling. Because of the success that both Victoria and I had working with Mike, we asked him to come and teach about breaking strongholds to our friends in Purcellville. As these bonds were strengthened, we were not only able to move our growing, weekly class to Purcellville Baptist, but we found a way to ensure Pastor Mike could conduct 1-on-1 counseling sessions for those in need throughout our community once a week. The model was so impactful that Pastor Mike was able to duplicate it in Berryville. This is a wonderful example of how God has allowed me to use my organizational gifting and passion for growth to help ministries build a stronger foundation and reach so many new people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Finally, I’ve also spent a lot of time focusing on my personal identity in Christ throughout the year. Thanks to the Identity Exchange ministry of Jamie Winship (highly recommended), I’m able to focus my attention on what God is directing ME to do. God is (and has been) calling me to be a CATALYST to help others ignite His purpose. I know that sounds simple and obvious, but through this personal study God has really solidified that direction for my life and my ministry, which makes my future work that much more clear.
My 2023 goal is to impact more churches, ministries, and individuals throughout our community and our world. With that said, I have THREE things to ask you to consider. First, please pray for Ignite Purpose ministry. Second, consider giving a year-end, tax-deductible donation (check, PayPal, Venmo). Third, please nominate a church or ministry that could use help reaching more people. Through these nominations, the Ignite Purpose team will choose up to 12 organizations a year and execute an evaluation report from organizational structure to promotional strategies and provide a written report/plan to help the organization create a stronger foundation for growth. See: www.IgnitePurpose.org/nominations
Please accept my genuine gratitude for your support, which allows me to help people grow as they live, love, and lead like Jesus. If you have any questions at all, please let me know.
Merry Christmas and I pray for a hoped filled 2023.
