Welcome to Isaac Taylor's YAGM Funding Page!
It is with great enthusiasm that I announce my acceptance into the Young Adults in Global Mission program through the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America! I have been called to serve in the United Kingdom for a year as a missionary starting in August. I will be one of more than 85 young adults serving on behalf of the ELCA in 11 different countries throughout the world!
As part of this call, it is my job to raise at least $5,000 to contribute to the $15,000 it will cost to send me abroad for the year. However, because the fundraising is a group process, I have made it my goal to raise at least $7,500 to help other YAGMs who do not have the resources they need to get to $5,000! Please support me and the YAGM program in our fundraising. Through your donation, you join me in my pursuit of God's plan for me to do mission work by accompanying a community internationally! I am thrilled to have heard God's call and look forward to the ways He will continue to mold me and my faith through this experience!
Thank you for joining me and for your support! Every gift truly matters!
About Young Adults in Global Mission
The ELCA’s Young Adults in Global Mission program provides young adults, ages 21-29, the opportunity to grow in their faith and work in partnership with our global companions. Young adults in the program serve in churches, schools and social service ministries. Currently the program is engaged in work in Argentina/Uruguay, Australia, Cambodia, Central Europe, Jerusalem/West Bank, Madagascar, Mexico, Rwanda, Senegal, Southern Africa and the United Kingdom.
The total cost for one young adult in the program is $15,000. Each young adult is tasked with raising a minimum of $5,000 to help support their year of service. The ELCA commits to raising the additional $10,000 per volunteer through generous congregations and donors. If more than $5,000 in gifts is received, the additional funds will be helping to support other young adult volunteers and ensure that there is a sustainable source of revenue for future the Young Adults in Global Mission program.
