BENEFITING: Intersection Community Church Elk Grove Ca
EVENT DATE: Sep 09, 2017
My name is Andre Paular, and I'm currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada. I grew up in the Sacramento, CA area, and came out to Las Vegas at the end of 2010 to learn and intern at Central Church.
That experience grew into a staff role, which included service programming and producing, while also doing what I have always been passionate about, which is leading people in worship through music and production.
I have led worship and done creative ministry planning for nearly 17 years. I’ve been blessed to serve in churches with numbers totaling the thousands, to young church plants in their first couple years of ministry, including WALK Church in Las Vegas and Intersection Community Church in Sacramento.
God has shown his power and his blessings in the many ministries and non-profits that I have been a part of, and I know that our goal as His children is to love those around us and be part of getting the Gospel, the true story of His Son Jesus Christ, out to the people all over the country, and the world.
I love being part of that movement through music, through songwriting, through team leading and building, and most importantly, through knowing Jesus more.
That is why I have been on a journey with God to land on applying for and attending Hillsong College in Australia. My plan at this point is to learn and work towards their one-year certificate of ministry program at the Hills Campus in the amazing city of Sydney.
I have followed the teachings and creative direction that have come out of Hillsong Church for over 15 years. I am constantly inspired by their worship music, their leaders, and how God uses them to reach people on a global scale. Hillsong Church has grown to having locations in Russia, the U.K., South Africa, New York, Los Angeles, and other areas.
This fundraising mission for me… it boils down to wanting to know more about God, to know more about Biblical leadership, to know more about the craft of leading worship… all done in a way that strives for excellence.
MY CALL TO ACTION:
I would love for each of you viewing this video, each of you that has supported me in my passions and life roads, to join on this journey. Would you find it in your heart and life to contribute? Maybe it’s $10, or 20, 50, 100, or more. Every little bit helps! And if you can't give financially at this time, either way, I would appreciate your thoughts and your prayers. Please be praying for my journey to and at Hillsong College. Pray for God’s will in my life and yours. I’m praying for you as well. Thank you.
"Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul." (3 John 1:2 ESV)
You are invited to be part of my journey through prayer and financial giving. This can be a one-time contribution, or a pledge of a certain amount each month. All will benefit my cause and me experiencing this year of ministry training in Sydney, Australia.
Funds raised will be going towards my year in Australia:
- two semesters of tuition
- application and processing fees
- passport renewal and international student visa fees
- Australian health insurance
- weekly rent and utilities (campus housing is with 2-4 other guys that will be fellow Hillsong College students)
- moving to and from Sydney, Australia
- necessary bedding and furnishing items for our place (beds are not always provided)
- living expenses/groceries/bus fare for school
- educational and worship track-related supplies
- additional costs in and during the year abroad
I am currently working nonstop in Las Vegas, in preparation for next year, and will also be seeking a part-time work position while attending College in Sydney. My goal and prayer is to begin in semester 1 (late January), but if more time is needed to raise needed funds, I will begin in semester 2 (late July). Funds will be collected and tracked through Intersection Community Church, and will be refunded to all donors upon a decision not to pursue ministry schooling at this time.
Thank you for your time visiting this page, for your prayers, and for any financial donations you can give or pledge to. God will not let me fail in His will, and I am so excited for the Kingdom work to be done through and after my time at Hillsong College!
