Support for City Project


This summer, I am going on a missions trip/program with my church called The City Project. In this project, I will be serving on 2 missions programs as well as many different activities throughout the summer in Durham, NC. Below is a copy of the support letter that I have mailed out to many of my friends and family. I am trying to raise support both prayerfully and financially. If you would, please have a look at the letter and prayerfully consider supporting me in this mission for Christ. Thank you so much, and have a blessed day!!! And forward this to all of your friends and family if you want!

Thanks, Brad


I hope that this letter finds you and your family doing well! I am finishing up my sophomore year at North Carolina State University and looking forward to summertime. This year has definitely been a challenge in many ways, but has also included some of the greatest experiences in my life.

The Lord has given me the opportunity to take part in a summer experience called The City Project, at The Summit Church in Durham, NC. This program involves four weeks of living in and serving the community of Durham, as well as an internship at both the church and a non-profit organization in the community. This program will also take me to New York City to help with a church plant and minister to Muslims in the Queens area. Finally, the City Project will take me to either Taipei, Taiwan or Belgrade, Serbia to serve college students. While in Durham we will be partnering with local community ministries where we will be able to love and serve our neighbors. In addition to this community work, throughout the summer I will be discipled by Summit pastors, building community with the 40-or-so other participants, and taking a graduate-level seminary class through Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, in Wake Forest, NC.

 Our ultimate goal in the City Project is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations and to bring Him honor and glory in all that we do. This will be possible through the grace of the Lord and through your involvement as well. I want to first and foremost ask for your support through prayer. Please pray for me, that I will obey the Lord and carry out the mission that He has set before me, and do so with a humble heart that gives praise to Him. Pray for my team, the fellow students on the project as well as the leaders, that they will prepare their hearts for this summer and fall more in love with Christ. Please be praying for our safety and our effectiveness in sharing the Gospel. Finally, please pray that the Lord will provide for me financially, so that I may be able to do His work.

In addition to your prayer support, I am also in need of financial support. My support goal that I must raise is $4500. This will cover the entirety of what I do this summer, and it is essential that I raise all of this money to be able to participate. It would be a great blessing to me if you would consider supporting me financially this summer. Any and all contributions are welcome! If you would like to help financially, you may send your check directly to the Summit Church, or to me (both addresses are below). In either case, please make your check payable to "The Summit Church" and put "The City Project: Brad Johnson" on the memo line. Your help is greatly appreciated!

I know that this summer will be a great experience, both for me and for the people who are blessed by this project, and I would be so grateful to have you supporting me! Please call me at 316-655-3774, or email me at if you have any questions, concerns, or comments! Thank you in advance for your interest and your prayers!
