BENEFITING: CHI ALPHA CAMPUS MINISTRIES HUNTSVILLE
Who am I: My name is Reagan McHargue and I am a second year intern in a thriving full gospel college ministry called Chi Alpha (similar to Intervarsity, Navigators, or Cru).
What I am about: I am passionate about connecting young people of America to opportunities to serve around the world, loving people and making Jesus Christ known.
Where I have been: In the recent past I have lead a growing college ministry, “Punto de Encuentro” on two university campuses in the State of Jalisco, Mexico. Now I am in my second year of an internship that dedicates itself to training young adults how to be missionaries to their peers on the college campuses of America. Last year I took a team of nine students to Chile to build up, train and rally behind a newly launched college ministry in the capital of Santiago pioneered by some dear friends.
What am I doing: This year I will be taking 12 young adults; for many of them this will be their first trip. This trip is a big deal for them and for the people we serve. The importance of exposure in the lives of these twelve team members is that many of them will raise money to return and give many years of dedicated loving service to the people of the countries so that Christ can be known, experienced and loved by others. This has been historically true with other trips we have taken. It is through these trips that our faith increases, character is built, love for the nations greatens, native missionaries are encouraged and many people are reached.
What you can do: Partner with us so that we can go! It will take $38,400 (12x$3,200) for all of us to go. ½ of the cost is airfare. We are planning as a team things we can do together and individually to raise money like bake sales, car washes and auctioning personal belongings… but simply put these won’t generate nearly enough funds for us to go. We need your help to go and for people to be reached!
How funds will be used: Airfare, a place to stay, a work budget for the team, and a love offering for our host at the end of our stay.
Thank you!! I am super excited to have you join with us in furthering God’s Kingdom in an upside down world and to bring hope to men and women like you through Christ through the love of Christ.
