In Ezekiel 22:30 we read: “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”
Did you know God is still looking for willing believers to stand in the gap? He is still touching hearts with a burden for the lost. Mount Hermon Associates respond to His nudge, step forward and make a difference.
Thanks to our Associates, we offer a series of programs that help students cross the gap of young adulthood, where so many walk away from the faith of their childhood. Amata, Echo and CILT are great examples that have ministered to hundreds over the last few years.
Desiring to bring more young people one step closer to Jesus, our program team dreamed of a two–week camp for young men entering grades 11 or 12. Young men today desperately need to discover what it means to become “a man after God’s own heart.” What if Mount Hermon could provide a setting where they would go deeper in relationship with God, transforming them into men who are humble, loving, wise and free? What would be the Kingdom impact if they were then taught and challenged to live out these four character traits of a godly man: humility, love, wisdom and freedom? After years of dreaming, the dream became reality in 2015 with the launch of “Band of Brothers.”
Mount Hermon Associates transformed this dream into direct Kingdom impact through their gifts. Associates provided the lodging required for these young men and staff and, in the years to come, thanks to the continued support of Associates, Band of Brothers will anchor hundreds of young men into a much deeper relationship with God and His Word. Imagine the impact!
Over the last twelve months Associates have touched every area of Mount Hermon, enabling trails to be restored, cabins to be refreshed, roofs to be sealed, railings to be installed, staff housing improvement to be made, our child care deck to be rebuilt, and so much more! In order to reach more lives for the Kingdom we need others to respond to His nudge, step forward, stand in the gap and make a difference. Please pause for a moment and ask God if this is a vision that He is inviting you to be part of. Maybe He’s prompting you to be the bridge that carries others across the perilous gap between them and Jesus by making a difference as a Mount Hermon Associate!
I thank you in advance for your prayerful consideration of this Kingdom opportunity and invite you to contact me or Kerry Phibbs if you have any questions or would like to know more. May you and your entire family be richly blessed during this Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
Give generously to Him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.
