Hi there!! My name is Olivia Bates (you can call me Liv 🙂) and I am stepping into the mission field with an organization called Circuit Riders, a YWAM (Youth With A Mission) ministry!
God planted a seed in my heart the summer before my senior year of high school to reach the nations for Him. He gave me a burning passion for revival and a heart that is utterly broken for the lost. Since then, He has been faithfully cultivating that seed! I have a deep longing to see captives set free and for generations to wake up and come alive in the love of God!!
Circuit Riders shares that same longing! The heart of Circuit Riders is to “save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all.” They are raising up generations of radical, Jesus-obsessed young people who are taking the Gospel to the nations! Circuit Riders hosts a Discipleship Training School (DTS) in Huntington Beach, California where I will spend 3 months living alongside believers and being a part of daily training sessions, corporate prayer and worship, weekly outreaches in Huntington Beach and the surrounding area, small group discipleship, and hands-on skill training (with a focus in worship ministry) that will help equip me for the Great Commission!
Following the lecture phase of my DTS, I will have the opportunity to spend 3-4 months on outreach with a movement called Carry The Love. Carry The Love is a campaign that is empowered by Circuit Riders, and is geared toward reaching the university campuses of America and Europe. On this outreach we will hold evangelistic gatherings/events, do one-on-one evangelism, hold evangelism trainings, lead small groups, and serve the local communities of the areas we travel to.
I would be honored if you would prayerfully consider coming alongside me in prayer and financial support! My current goal is to raise $10,000 before this coming August to cover housing, schooling, and the cost of living (food, local transportation, flights, etc.).
I truly believe that the Lord is moving in WILD ways across our nation and the world!! It blows my mind that we get to partner in the work the Lord is doing in the earth! What a blessing!! I am excited to step boldly into the ways God wants to use me for the growth of His Kingdom!
Thank you SO much for your consideration and support. You all mean so much to me! <3
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Blessings, Liv :)
