Ivy Kendziorski – The Experience

While participating in Surge during the summer of 2021, I heard about The Experience program. I was instantly interested and thought I needed to go. However, I wasn't sure if this was because God was calling me to The Experience or if it was just a personal desire. I wanted to make sure this was what God was calling me to next. Through prayer and listening to God, I felt him calling me to dive in deeper. I sensed that meant He was saying “yes” to The Experience. I'm all in for Jesus and I'm saying YES! I'm ready to find out what God has for me next.


The Experience is an intense 58-day equipping program hosted by Forge and designed to take young adults on a transformational journey of training, ministry, life planning and coaching. After several weeks in Denver, Colorado, where we will be challenged by the powerful messages from Forge speakers, and equipped through practical skill training, we will travel overseas to engage new cultures and see first-hand God’s heart for the nations. After a couple weeks abroad, we will return to the U.S. to continue to put into practice life-on-life ministry as we serve as student leaders at Forge’s Deep Camp. My time on The Experience will wrap up with a week back in Denver focused on discovering who God uniquely made me to be and preparing me to return to the environment God has called me to.


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. Secondly, I would ask that you consider partnering with me financially. The total cost of tuition for this program is $5,900. I am confident that God has much to teach me this summer through my time at The Experience, and I would ask you to prayerfully consider investing in my life. My fundraising deadline is April 30.
