This is our once-a-year-please-give-b-money fundraising drive. You will not be receiving another request until next summer.

You are receiving this annual please-give-b-money email because; 1) I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE NOT BEACUSE I ASKED NOT (this is me asking you for your money) and 2) you receive a monthly musing through out the year. The purpose of the is NOT to guilt you into supporting b but to ask you to do so. The summer is a difficult financial time for b so we send out this once-a-year request during the summer to help us prepare for September and the start of our ministry year.

b invests our time, talents and energy into ministering to those in full time/part time Christian ministry and those preparing to enter into full time Christian ministry. We do this locally and globally—throughout the world!

Primarily, we meet with pastors. This ministry was born out of my own experience of meeting with pastors for spiritual direction at youth pastors and pastors’ conventions. I discovered that many were going through, dealing with, very difficult realities in their life and ministry and did not have anyone they felt safe to share their struggles with. My heart broke for these individuals and God used all this to lead me to start b in 2005. b is currently meeting monthly, locally and globally, with well over 150 people in person and via skype – providing them the opportunity to unburden their hearts, and to open, reconnect with God, rekindle their first love, to explore and discover what God is doing in their lives and what God may be inviting them into.

Additionally we are involved with three different seminaries, teaching and meeting with students, professors and administrators, we work with individual churches and denominations, lead retreats, work with church staffs provide monthly musings, online materials (studies, videos…for free), offer training, provide guidance and design sabbaticals for pastors, and last December we released our third book – this one is on Christian discernment and on July 11 (last week) Vineyard USA released a resource entitled Does God Really Loved Me that we helped write—7 weeks of daily devotions, 7 videos and 7 small group sessions.

The bottom line is this - our ministry is dependent on donations. We need people like you to support b.

Please consider making a financial gift to b this summer. We gladly receive donations small or BIG (all of which are tax deductible - b is a charitable nonprofit organization - 501c 3).

embracing the adventure of living Jesus,

Larry :)
