Soar Heartland feels like it’s right around the corner! For those that aren’t familiar, The Multiply Soar program is a short term mission training program that takes place in in cities around North America. Participants from youth groups, churches and missions partners gather together for a week of worship, service, and going after God’s heart for our city and nation. There will be a time of orientation, followed by a local mission assignment and then a debrief. Check out this link for more info, or if you want to sign up!

Now that you’re caught up on what SOAR is, we would love to fill you in on how its going this year so far. We have been planning with our team for this years program for quite a while already. There have been challenges with the pandemic and a lot of flexibility has been needed in order to move forward. Last year, we ended up streaming daily sessions online and giving instructions for group leaders to go out on their own assignments. Even though Soar looked different. It was powerful, challenging, and fun!

Here’s a look at some of last years highlights.

This Years Theme:

Each year there is a theme that helps shape the teaching and overall program. This year we are focusing on the word breathe: to breathe Jesus in and breathe Him out. To walk with his indwelling spirit. In John 15, Jesus says that he is the vine and that as we remain in him and he in us, there will be fruit. In verse 8 he says “This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.”

Prayer Points:

We have been praying that as we breathe Jesus in and out, we would glorify God. We pray that as we breathe Jesus in, He would show us that he is the qualifier. Even though we may not feel like we can do it on our own, Jesus has already qualified us and will qualify us. This has been close to our hearts as we have been praying for the young participants of Soar. We have hope that after a period of isolation, they will be uplifted and feel less alone. We have hope that as they remain in him, the fruit that comes from Jesus will fill their lives and the Earth.

Our Task:

One of the things that has been placed in our hands is the worship portion of the program. Each day there is worship accompanied by a teach or local mission session. This year our worship team consists of seven leaders: Me (vocals), Aiden (drums), Ryan (guitar and vocals), Bomba (keys), Jess (electric guitar and vocals), Levi (vocals and bass), Braidy (electric).

As we lead and prepare as a team, we would appreciate your prayer for each one of these team members. Pray for our hearts to be set on Jesus so that we can lead others in humility, spirit, and truth. Pray for unity as a team and clarity for how to prepare regarding song choices and logistics.

Thank you all for your love and partnership.

If you are reading this it’s probably because you are in some way connected to us directly. We want to begin by thanking God for bringing you into our lives. You are the subject of our first testimony here on our blog because all of you are a part of something incredible that started at the beginning of last year. I am referring to the process we call partnership development.

Doing this job requires ministry partners to support us financially and prayerfully. This task seemed daunting to say the least. We had no idea how many of you were going to step up.There’s really only one word to describe how it played out, miraculous.

The Provision:

This partnership journey began in December of 2020 and we were blown away to realize we had been supported enough for our first year by the third week of March 2021! It happened so fast and by none of my own strength.

The Power Of Prayer:

At the beginning I didn’t even know where or how to start. Our friends Dave and Louise interceded on our behalf with a passionate prayer for provision and for shelter. Another friend said start your morning with prayer, and ask Jesus who you need to contact today. See who he places on your heart. So that’s how we started, I would wake up, sit down and pray. More than once Jesus put one of you in my mind, and the next thing I knew you were calling me to ask how you could support us. I was blown away by the power of His Holy Spirit and your obedience!

Scripture Of Encouragement:

Some scripture that comes to my mind is Mathew 7:7 - “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

it was encouraging and assuring to experience so many of you partnering with Him as this door to ministry was opened in part by your attentiveness to the Spirit and your willingness. it was also amazing to see His plan in action as we crossed paths with so many of you during those few months. We were seeking God and found him in all of you. You encouraged us with your words, prayers and finances.

Thank you.

We are currently just shy of 70% for this coming year of ministry 2022, and ask you to pray for more partners on our journey here with Him.
