Zoe Cooper – The Experience

As I thought of my plans for this upcoming summer, I was unsure what to do. I wanted to be comfortable, maybe working all summer in my home town or moving back home. As I weighed my options, I came across Forge. In my research I learned more about Forge’s discipleship program called The Experience. As I considered if I should spend my summer on The Experience God gave me peace. I knew at that point that this is what He was leading me to do.

I was very nervous to apply, because it was way out of my comfort zone. Again, God gave me the courage, and put many people in my life that encouraged this step of faith. So I listened to God in an act in obedience and I got accepted! 

God has been working in me in miraculous ways this past year. I know that He will strengthen my boldness in faith in the upcoming months! Below is an explanation of what Forge is, and explains my needs in the upcoming months! Thank you in advance for your time! I hope you decide to join me on this exciting new journey.

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 powerful messages from Forge itinerant 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 and then spend a week in various cities across the U.S. in mobilization training. 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.
