Second Annual Robbie's Run
Robbie was bold in his faith and shared Jesus to many nonbelievers before he passed away from leukemia in February 2015. In his writings discovered in a Bible he owned, his family discovered the words "Run the Race" written in his handwriting. Our hope is to raise $100,000 this year to support scholarships to the Horizon Christian School in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Praise Him Loud Tour
The Dave Chisham Band recorded a new CD titled Free. The band is seeking to tour locations from Indiana to Washington, DC, prior to and after Together 2016 on July 16, 2016. The band is looking for $50,000 for a four-week tour. The band owns all their own sound equipment, giving them the ability to play at events of all sizes. In addition, the group is open to any performance locations along the way.
Goat Farm Ministry In India
Rahul Nirmal is an Indian pastor who studied in Indianapolis over a decade ago. Rahul's family already owns some land, but needs capital to
build out an infrastructure and purchase animals. Give1 seeks to own half of his business for $10,000. We plan to use the proceeds from the operation to support other efforts.
Biblical Foundations Academy International
Biblical Foundations Academy International is a ministry run by Reverend Keith Johnson, a renegade Methodist pastor. BFAI produces media content that features the Hebraic roots of Christianity, translations of Scriptures, several books, tours and updates about the importance of Temple Mount in Jerusalem. The works of his organization should be distributed through international media like Daystar or even NBC.
We would like deliver $250K annually and actively facilitate the expansion of their efforts.
Nehemia's Wall is operated by Nehemia Gordan, friend and collaborator with Keith Johnson. Nehemia holds a Masters Degree in Biblical Studies and a Bachelors Degree in Archaeology from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He has worked as a translator on the Dead Sea Scrolls and as a researcher deciphering ancient Hebrew manuscripts. A prominent figure in the Karaite Jewish community, Gordon has written two popular books on the Hebrew origins of Christianity and is active in interfaith dialogue. Gordon speaks at synagogues and churches around the world and leads groups of pilgrims and visitors on tours of biblical sites. Produced media content on the Torah, The Prophets, and several books should be shared with more people alongside Keith Johnson and others. We would like to deliver $250K annually and actively facilitate the expansion of his efforts.
BTHorizon is a start-up LLC that focuses on the spiritual mentoring of youth. We would like to provide $150K annually to efforts of Todd Melloh and a cast of talented people to deliver programs like Beyond The Horizon, Gameday Coffee and 24 Dates With My Dad.
Brickhouse Coffee is owned by Jared and Lora Stayton. The couple wishes to secure $65K to obtain a roaster that would increase its output and allow for more time to meet with its growing list of customers.
The Farm near Shelbyville, IN is currently private property that is being developed for later use as a place where Christians can safely gather,
worship and have access to a sustainable food/water source. Building out the infrastructure of the property is of primary interest by the owner.
Placing a dollar amount on the cost of the build out is only limited by human imagination. The project could easily use $2 million or more to
expand the grounds into a youth camp and agri-tourism site.
Michigan University Church
New Life Church in Ann Arbor, Michigan is on the campus of Michigan University we visited this church prior to attending a funeral of a family member at another church. We were welcomed by Kevin Rogan and it was revealed that they are in need of $300k to liquidate their mortgage and use future contributions for direct ministry.
Indy Dream Center
An Indy Dream Center is the vision of Adam Gross. There is currently a Dream Center in California that Adam would like to model in Indianapolis. The hallmark feature of the center is that it would be a church that is open 24 hours per day, unlike a majority of churches that are only open for non-crisis, planned purposes. The dollars necessary for this center is unknown.
We will update contributors via email and Facebook with the specific use of funds.
