BACKSTORY:
About two weeks ago, I attended National Youth Leader's Conference 2012 (NYLC'12). It changed my life.

Since then, I felt called to join the Master's Commission Atlanta (MCATL) run by Jeanne Mayo. I loved the atmosphere and the gentle spirits of the current MCATL students. I just knew it was something I was supposed to be a part of.

Furthermore, I believe that I'm called to be a minister and writer. I want to attend seminary but first I must finish my Bachelor's degree and then I can go to seminary.

I believe MCATL is the first step I must take before I go to study religion/philosophy. I need to really seep myself in ministry and the purpose so that I can be purpose-driven, to use one of Rick Warren's buzz words.

But to do these things, I NEED YOUR HELP.
I believe I am called to MCATL, and I wish to follow that call in obedience, but there's no way I can afford it on my own.

WHAT I AM SACRIFICING TO FOLLOW THIS CALLING
I must quit my job and put my education on hold. I work full-time for a very big, corporate bank. It's not exactly an easy job to walk away from, either.
I'm leaving behind my family and my home life. I'm stepping out of my comfort zone and saying, 'here I am, God, use me.'

COST
I need and am believing that the following costs will be covered.
MCATL tuition and housing (about $7000).
I also need my current monthly bills met, since I will be without a job (about $4250).
These figures do not include food costs. MCATL tuition includes a weekly $25 stipend for food and I am believing this will be enough. I also haven't included gas money or money for any extra expenses. I have attempted to make the amount I ask for as low as possible. So any extra giving will be really really appreciated.

MY PLEA
Please, please, please help me. Whatever you can give will be appreciated. Whether you can give money, items I'll need, transportation you no longer need (e.g. cars, motorcycles, scooters, plane tickets, etc.), food deliveries (yum), helpful books, or prayers. ANYTHING YOU CAN GIVE WILL HELP. There really is nothing too small. I will be grateful if you just say to me, "Chris, I support what you're doing." That alone will encourage me and lift my spirits. And it will cost you nothing. :)
Again, please. Everything helps. There's nothing too small.

THANK YOU
Thanks for reading and for any donations. Please prayfully consider what you can give. Thank you.

APPRECIATION
In a small attempt to show appreciation, I will personally write or type postcards to all my donors, I will make a t-shirt that includes names of all my donors/sponsors, and I will design a piece of artwork that I will get printed for my personal use and for all of you to display. These are, of course, small tokens of appreciation.

Many thanks,
Christopher Renda
