Forge Equipping

Sophia Burkhater – Forge Equipping 2023

Hey friends and family!

Thank you in advance for your time! I am reaching out today to share about an amazing opportunity I have coming up next summer to take part in Forge Equipping.

I have an amazing opportunity this summer to do a 12 day 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 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 past summer, I went to deep camp with my family and was saved during this camp. I got to see the stories and testimonies of those around me who had been through Forge equipping, and with lots of consideration and prayer I feel like this is where the Lord is guiding me.

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.

Secondly, I would ask that you consider partnering with me financially in this adventure. The total cost for this program is $5600. 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
