Elliot Hoeflinger – Surge 2021 

Hello family and friends,


Thanks so much for your time! I am very excited to share with you about an upcoming opportunity I have to join a two-week discipleship program this summer called Surge. I believe that this program will help me strengthen my Christian faith. I’m turning 16 in a few weeks and I’m not sure what God wants me to do with my life yet. I think this program will provide a healthy foundation for spiritual growth and give me some ideas about what I will do with my future. I especially think this program will give me a chance to engage new opportunities. In fact, I have already done something new: writing this letter and sending it to everyone I know.

Located in Denver, CO, Surge is a physically, emotionally, and spiritually intense discipleship adventure hosted by Forge. It’s filled with teaching by Forge Speakers, grueling team building, and outdoor adventures. Our destinations include both urban and rural locations where we will experience a variety of ministry opportunities and then wraps up with an intensive life-planning process that will help reveal how God has uniquely designed me to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

This is an amazing opportunity filled with inspiring ministry and intensive training! I am not sure exactly what to expect, but I’m excited to join God’s plan for me this summer. Whatever it is, I will only be able to experience it with the help of others. My first request is that you pray for me as I prepare for this summer discipleship training mission.

1) Pray that the Lord will prepare me spiritually and physically.
2) Pray for the Lord’s will to be done in my heart and through me in the lives of the people I connect with.
3) Pray that the Lord will provide for every need that arises as I step out in believing obedience to His plan.

Secondly, I would ask that you consider partnering with me financially in this adventure. The total cost for this program is $1,700. I am confident that God has much to teach me this summer in and through my training at Surge, and I would ask you to prayerfully consider investing in my life. My fundraising deadline is June 10.

If you have any questions please feel free to call me at 269-290-2609 or email me at mrelliotfox@gmail.com

Thank you so much!
