When I graduated from Houghton College in May, I knew I was ending a chapter and beginning a new journey as a recent college graduate. While it was difficult leaving the familiar; Houghton College, friends, and family, I decided to join the PULSE program in Pittsburgh, PA.
PULSE cultivates a community of young servant leaders to transform Pittsburgh. They invite recent, college graduates (like myself) to partner with local nonprofits for a year of service and leadership. I got excited about the PULSE program because I desire to see communities around Pittsburgh develop into peaceful neighborhoods where the elderly can sit and watch the young ones play without any fear of violence or poverty. I also hope to encourage a healthy way of living and community driven lifestyle.
I am looking forward to experiencing how the Lord will use me throughout this year for the benefit of others. This will also help me develop a deeper understanding of my passions and how I can help communities in the future. My hope for the year is that the Lord will continue to use my life as an example to show others how they are deeply loved by God.
Part of my first task as a PULSE participant is to assemble a team of people who will support me in this work. I realize that I can’t do this work alone, that I need others to come alongside me and partner with me.
Would you please consider supporting me in this work? I am in the process of raising a minimum of $2500 to cover expenses for this year of service and leadership. Your support will help impact the lives of Pittsburgh’s most vulnerable. Any amount, no matter how small or large will go a long way towards helping me meet this goal! Please to donate here, regardless of ability/interest to give financially. You can also give online at www.pulsepittsburgh.org/support. Thank you for your continued investment in my life and in the life of PULSE.
