What would you do if you were given 6 to 12 months to live?  Travel the world? Shop till you drop? Eat a half gallon of ice cream every single day?

Today I’m faced with that very question. 

I’ve been diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and I’ve been given 6 to 12 months to live. Three days ago I began a palliative chemotherapy regimen. In a world that is increasingly surreal and temporary, I desperately want to leave a lasting legacy and a sense of permanence that’s greater than my failing body. 

There are two things in this world that make me feel alive and purposeful: God and my family, so I want to spend every moment I can with the One above and the ones I love most on this earth. 

I need your help. 

I want to bring my son Isaac alongside me in the ministry. On July 24, Isaac gave notice to leave his job as youth pastor at Redmond Christian Church (who graciously gave him their blessing) and has taken a step of faith to pastor with me at Real Life Christian Church in Bend, Oregon.

But the church can’t afford to pay for Isaac’s ministry, so we are seeking to raise $50,000 for Isaac’s first year. Give what you can, every single dollar is appreciated. 31790080_1533089988720442_r.jpeg
I am grateful for your support and prayers as I go through this painful and difficult journey with my family. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  

                           “For nothing is impossible with God.” 
                                                           Luke 1:37
