Can God use you when you buy or sell a house?

March 9, 2016

Buying or selling a house or property anytime soon? What if you could do that and at the same time, you could impact orphaned and vulnerable kids for Christ during the process? Well it’s possible with our partnership with our friend JT Hardcastle and his company, The Real Estate Project.  When you use JT or any of the realtors on his team, they will contribute 1/3 of their own total commission (either as the listing or buyer’s agent or both…

Thank You Cornerstone Christian Academy!

March 9, 2016

Cornerstone Christian Academy second grade students topped off their school’s huge Valentine fundraiser by presenting a $2,000 check to the 25 Project! Jennifer Thomas, a parent and volunteer at Cornerstone in McKinney, Texas, challenged the kids to think globally in helping others this Valentine’s Day. Having heard of a need through the 25 Project for books and Bibles, Jennifer decided to challenge her child’s second grade class to “think worldwide” and help outside their circle of influence. This challenge quickly spread to the whole…

Unlocking the Secret

February 17, 2016

“When you discover the secret joy of the Treasure Principle, I guarantee you’ll never be content with less.” Randy Alcorn   Our staff just recently finished reading Alcorn’s book, The Treasure Principle, Discovering the Secret of Joyful Giving. While this book maybe short, it is powerful, potentially life changing, and in my humble opinion, it should be a book every believer reads. Alcorn gives six principles for how we should view and treat money: 1.     God owns everything. I’m His…

Among several things this team will do will…

Silent Heroes

January 27, 2016

Recently I was listening to a radio program, catching the very end of a teaching segment by Chuck Swindoll. The teaching was about Nehemiah and the seemingly impossible task of rebuilding Jerusalem. In the last couple of minutes, Chuck diverged from the topic to talk about what he referred to as the layman. In place of layman, I would say ministry partners. What he said was so close to my heart because it reflects the 25 Project’s heart for all of…

School in Sierra Leone

January 8, 2016

Have you ever wondered how school works in other countries? During my last trip to Sierra Leone we were able to visit most of the former street boys at their school. This, along with input from our partners there, Becky Brockelman and Charles Yimbo, I feel like I understand enough now to share schooling in Sierra Leone. Our children in Sierra Leone begin in Primary Classes I through VI. When a child’s family has sufficient funds, children begin Class I at…

January 1, 2016

What’s one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God? 2. What’s the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year? 3. What’s the single most important thing you could do…

Holy, Righteous and Redeemed

December 18, 2015

This past Saturday the 25 Project held a MercyMe benefit concert. Can I borrow a phrase from Bart and remind you that because of Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, you are holy, righteous and redeemed! My prayer is that you needed to be reminded of that today. I was privileged to be able to see and speak to many of you Saturday and to meet many of you for the first time.God prompted me to write about this event. There is…
