Forge Equipping

Blake Rimmer – Forge Equipping 2023

Hello Friends and Family,

Thank you in advance for your time! I am reaching out today to share about one of the immediate next steps of my life! This upcoming summer I will be taking part in Forge Equipping (see more details in next paragraph). I was connected to the ministry of Forge through attending a conference at CIU. I feel that with all the work that God has done in my life recently, this is where He is leading my next steps. So, I am following Him in faith, and taking a step into something that would normally be outside of my comfort zone. This is an exciting opportunity for me to seek out what God has planned for my life and practice trusting His guidance.

Forge Equipping is a physically, emotionally, and spiritually intense discipleship adventure hosted by Forge ( It's filled with teaching by Forge Speakers, grueling team building, and outdoor adventures. Our destinations include both urban and rural locations where we will experience a variety of ministry opportunities. We will also take part in Forge's summer camp called Deep Camp and go on an international mission trip to unreached people in Mexico.  The whole process is designed to help me engage Jesus’ mission to those around me in my everyday life and to help others do the same.

This is an amazing opportunity filled with exciting ministry and intensive training! I am not sure exactly what to expect, but I'm eager to join God's plan for me this summer. Whatever it is, I will only be able to experience it with the help of others. My first request is that you pray for me as I prepare for this summer discipleship training mission.

1) Pray that the Lord will prepare me spiritually and physically.

2) Pray for the Lord's will to be done in my heart and through me in the lives of the people I connect with

3) Pray that the Lord will provide for every need that arises as I step out in believing obedience to His plan.

Secondly, I would ask that you consider partnering with me financially in this adventure. The total cost for this five week program is $5,600. I am confident that God has much to teach me this summer in and through my training at Forge Equipping, and I would ask you to prayerfully consider investing in my life. My fundraising deadline is June 1. If you would like to know more about Forge Equipping please check out the website at

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

Thank you so much!
