Have you ever been a part of something awesome? I mean like truly awesome—something so cool that it starts redefining what “cool” is. Well, I get a chance to be a part of this every first and third Tuesday night at PhoenixONE.

I first heard about PhoenixONE at a different young adults ministry which I thought was awesome. As they put it, “PhoenixONE is like this gathering… But on steroids!” I knew I had to check it out. I went a few weeks later and was blown away by the passion, fun, and authenticity that PhoenixONE brought to the table.

After that trip I was hooked. So hooked, in fact, that I asked if I could support in some way. Thankfully, they let me. PhoenixONE gave me an opportunity to share my passion with the people I love. PhoenixONE allowed me to sing as loud as I wanted with 800 other people my age.

PhoenixONE allowed me to sit in silence for an entire hour, something that I don’t think I’ve ever done before. PhoenixONE allowed me to find “community”—or as I like to call it, to make friends. PhoenixONE helped me get plugged into a church which fit me well, while also giving me an opportunity to spend time with hundreds of other people my age who, like me, are just trying to figure it out. PhoenixONE is shaping my young adult life, and I’m very grateful for that.

But PhoenixONE needs help. Just like we need PhoenixONE, PhoenixONE needs us. In order to continue to make cool things happen, they need our support and our money. So if you’ve been impacted by PhoenixONE, please join me in donating to keep PhoenixONE up and running. Giving helps PhoenixONE and it helps us practice generosity in a society full of selfishness. Anything helps.

Finally, share your own PhoenixONE story. I want to hear how it has impacted you. After you donate, of course. :)
