My name is Michaela Elliott, and I am currently a sophomore Communication and Business Administration double major at Messiah University where I am also part of the Women’s soccer team.
This past summer I had the opportunity to go out to Huntington Beach, CA to be part of Circuit Riders Summer School where I spent 10 days immersed in teachings, skillset workshops, and activations. My heart was stirred to want to see my generation encounter the love of Jesus and know Him for themselves.
The Lord has totally flipped the simple plans I thought I had and I will be putting a pause on school and soccer and moving to California in January to be part of Circuit Rider’s discipleship training school for six months. The first four months will consist of in-depth trainings, teachings, skillset workshops, and local outreach. This will expand on the foundation that was set this summer and will help to develop me as a young person as well as better equip me to reach my generation. The next two months will be spent on outreach with a team of other students and staff. We will be sent into the nations to share the Gospel with a broken and hungry generation who are waiting to hear and encounter the love of Jesus!
The heart of the Circuit Riders is to save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all. I am so excited to step into this new season of going deeper with the Lord, getting practically trained as a leader, communicator, and missionary, and stepping out of my comfort zone to follow where the Lord is leading! I want to see my generation know the love of Jesus and this program will give me the tools I need to carry this out!
I will need to raise funds for both the lecture phase as well as outreach (including travel costs), and I would so appreciate your prayerful support. I have clearly felt the Lord leading me to take this step and I am so excited to give Him my yes – thank you for partnering with me in this!
