I am starting a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian ministry supporting LGBTQ youth.
I am seeking kickstart money to help me network across the country at 3 conferences this fall; file non-profit papers; and assemble my board of directors.
The ministry has a basic web-page at www.encompassyouthministry.com. You can learn more about me and my aspirations for this ministry at the web-site.
With the monies raised, I will be able to attend the following three conferences and training sessions:
Catholic Association of Lesbian and Gay Ministries, New Orleans, September 12-15, 2013
Room for All (Reformed Church Lesbian / Gay Outreach), Making Room for All 2013, October 24-26, 2013
Building an Inclusive Church, Institute for Welcoming Resources, Sacramento, November 23, 2013.
I will use any remaining proceeds to pay for filing fees with the IRS and the State of California for our organizational paper work.
