Grayson Allen


My name is Grayson Allen. 

I’m 17 years old and a senior in high school. I have a deep passion for missions and filmmaking. I have been blessed to grow up in a family that has a heart for spreading God’s love to the lost. Through my church (Elevation Church) and my soccer club (the Charlotte Eagles), I have been a part of 4 short term mission trips, starting at age 8. During the trips to Central and South America and Africa, I have witnessed the power of the Gospel and seen the love of God transform lives. Looking back, those trips were the most eye opening and impactful adventures I have experienced. I always came home with a newfound sense of faith, hope, and passion.

Now as I am preparing to leave the house and head to Liberty University next fall, the Lord has been preparing me for an extra adventure. Thanks to online school and dual enrollment classes, I have the opportunity to graduate high school this December with many college credits under my belt. This means that my entire spring semester is open!

Over the last 7-8 months, I kept hearing about Circuit Riders, a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) ministry. After my older brother attended a Circuit Riders event at Wheaton College, he encouraged me to attend the Circuit Riders worship night in Charlotte. Not only did the Lord show up in that moment, but I also learned more about the Circuit Riders Discipleship Training School (DTS). I even learned that they offer a “media” track. God was stirring my heart! After cool God-connections, many conversations and lots of prayer, I applied to Circuit Riders and was accepted into their January 2024 DTS class.

Circuit Riders is a mission and training community that shares the love of Jesus with the next generation. Their mission is to save the lost, revive the saved and train them all.

I will be moving to Huntington Beach, CA, living in their community housing and participating in their 5-month training school. This school is designed to build my relationship with Jesus, develop me as a leader, and send me as a missionary. As a media track student, I will also be trained to use media and visual communication skills to reach my generation with the gospel. I will spend three months in the lecture phase and the other months traveling in outreach.  For the outreach portion of my time with Circuit Riders, I need to raise $4200.

I believe this is an amazing opportunity and a wide-open door! I would be honored if you would prayerfully consider partnering with me in prayer and/or financially in this calling! I’m excited to learn more about sharing the love of God and walking in my calling to create to honor the Creator.
