/ Awakening

Donors and Partners

We desire for Awakening to be part of God’s plan to turn the tide and speak truth to this generation, equipping them to face the secular world head-on and to inspire them to a call to ministry using their God-given gifts in the church.

Donate to Awakening

The importance of your gift is changing a life, directing a career to ministry in the church, changing the tide from disengagement in the church to leadership in it.

The challenge we embrace is engaging this generation like never before — by instilling in them both a knowledge of and a love for God and His word, and spending time listening to Him on a daily basis. A true Awakening.

Matching grant – your gift doubles by giving today! 

Through your donation you are making an impact on these young and formative lives. God only knows the souls that will be touched this year because of you.

Check out the newest Awakening video from 2021 and the narrative of student stories about the impact of Awakening on their young lives.

God bless you for partnering with us as we seek to inspire this emerging generation of leaders to spread the gospel and disciple believers.
