From Porcia: Ever since Jesus set me free from the death grip of meth addiction, I haven’t stopped sharing my story and empowering people to find their God-given gifts and use them for the Kingdom. A little bit about me: I grew up in the suburbs of Minneapolis as one of the only bi-racial kids in my neighborhood. I was bullied for being different, which led me to experiment with alcohol and drugs to fit in. I quickly became addicted and went on a long, dark path of destruction, shame, and confusion. Along my journey of recovery, I found healing through sharing my story. There is so much power in knowing someone made it out of what you are going through!
God has recently placed a fire in my soul to raise up a generation of campus missionaries! My vision for Life On Mission is to see student-led prayer and Bible study groups saturate our nation’s high school and middle schools! I’ve been able to speak in hundreds of classrooms to hurting students and because of many state’s strict no-proselytizing laws I can’t share Jesus in these schools. This inspired me to equip and empower students to step into the very special calling of reaching their classmates for Jesus. Those middle and high school years can easily be wasted chasing popularity, relationships, and drowning in student struggles. What if students could see these years as a mission and an assignment straight from the heart of God?
