Forge Equipping

Isaiah Gray – Forge Equipping 2023

Dear family and friends,

Thank you in advance for your time! As you know I'm 18 years old. This year the Lord has been growing me in exciting ways. Ever since I was younger, God has always been there for me. When I was 4 years old, God showed me a vision of me speaking on a stage. When I saw that, I knew that God had a big plan for my life. I don't know when it will happen, but I know God will make it happen and take me to where he wants me. In the meantime, it is my goal to be faithful to him and trust him. I know that he will guide me to his plan. I can't wait to see where God takes me! This summer he has given me an amazing opportunity to join a discipleship program called Forge Equipping.

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.  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 program is $2600. 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
