I am an aspiring Christian contemporary music artist wanting to impact the youths of today who will be the leaders of tomorrow. The next generation has become my burden because the world is stealing their identity away. Our identity is so important because it determines our value and activity.
In this day and age, many teenagers have turned to music and influencers for answers by using different social media platforms to find their true identity. But I believe we are only able to find our identity in Christ!
I want to influence young people. I want to influence nations. I’m not for fame or popularity but impacting cultures and society with everything I got through my music. I want my songs and messages to point people back to Christ. And therefore, I felt the Lord leading me to enrol myself in Hillsong College.
Since 2016, I was invited to different churches across the globe to train their worship teams. I had to use my savings for most of the trips because not many could afford honorariums and that’s totally fine because it was never about the money but it was about the impacting and imparting.
Even right up till today, I am still doing it. To be able to do so, it was truly the grace of God! Believing that when God has called me to do this, it means He will provide. And I also believe the principle of the Kingdom and that is faith requires action. After praying to God for provision, I met a friend who introduced this crowdfunding site to me. And I thought why not just give this a shot because I have nothing to lose since my savings is close to empty.
So the reason why I have resorted to this because I've done everything I know how. I started 2 businesses just to support my ministry but it is barely sustainable. I have worked odd jobs. I've tried to find jobs, any kind that is available just so that I can support my ministry but doors have been shut tight.
And the reason why I need the financial support is because I want to be better equipped. I don't just wanna teach and lead worship but I want to write my own songs, better songs; songs of freedom, healing and breakthroughs that the world can worship God with and sing themselves into the Presence of God (Psalm 100:2 TPT - My life verse) and find themselves breaking through.

If the contributions were to go over the amount needed the money will also go to my upcoming project - an EP I've been working on and praying and believing that with the songs I’ve written and will produce, I am able to minister to the world.
I believe at the end of the day, millions will be blessed.
