To all our family, friends, and partners – we’ve got some exciting news to share with you!

For the past 8 years, we have served at Christ For The Nations Institute in various capacities from Directors of the Youth Major to adjunct professors to our current assignment as Directors of Youth For The Nations (YFN). It’s such an honor to be a steward at a place that has a reach across the globe.  We can’t help but be thankful to the Lindsay Family for allowing us to serve their vision.

Recently, our COO at Christ For The Nations (CFNI), Golan Lindsay, our pastors, Adam & Jami McCain, and CFNI’s Revenue Director, Nina Joundi, simultaneously felt like a change of role and focus was beginning for Erica & I. Until this past June, I was responsible for leading both the Youth Major and YFN, developing and releasing leaders all over the world, but this summer we were approached with the assignment to travel and minister more on the road while still leading YFN, increasing our availability throughout the year to run with our life’s vision & mission – “To release courage and power to risk-takers and dreamers who are believing for divine turn-arounds.” As we all prayed and dreamed we couldn’t help but notice the hand of God on this. So we, as a family, went all in and said yes!

We couldn’t be more excited about this new season for us. Many of you know we have been traveling and ministering often throughout our time at CFNI, but all of those mentioned and more have felt the message & ministry we have been trusted with needs to have the opportunity to be ministered more often. I am so grateful for the leadership in our life believing in the call of God on us and making room for us to run! We believe this season will bring strength to the local church, courage to pastors and leaders, and increase awareness of the move of God that’s happening at CFNI.

As a family, we’re asking ask for you to stand with us as this is a step of faith for us. We’re beginning to plan and coordinate the next year (2018) to accommodate this new assignment. We feel led from the Lord to partner with you & your vision and if you feel impressed that we can help you do so, we would welcome the opportunity.

Thank you to those who have been praying and advising throughout all of this, your encouragement & support has been refreshing to us. We couldn’t do what we do without you.
