An overflowing Sacramento living room and backyard housed an unforgettable night last weekend. We held our first ever residency graduation for five incredible people. It was a night all of us as leaders, about a dozen in all, had been anticipating and dreaming about since we launched last Spring.
Over the past 9 months Elaine, Bethany, Emily, Justin, and Jessica enagaged in many books, attended three conferences, participated in nights of teaching, and ultimately accepted God's inviation for them to be misisonaries where they are already living their lives. From September 2013 to May 2014, they journeyed with all of us into some very undiscovered terrain. We are so proud of them and thrilled that most of them will be helping to shape Forge this next year as leaders!
To all of our supporters around the country, thank you for making this night possible. It could not have happened without your prayers, your financial support, and your belief in the vision of Forge- to train men and women to live as missionaries in their neighborhoods.
Stay tuned in here to get involved with us in the Summer and be on the lookout for our next 9 month residency beginning in September!
