Choose to Lose Intro

By Dan Etheridge

Choose to Lose is a new fundraising challenge. The idea is simple: get sponsored to give up something you love for a short time to raise money and prayer for young Christians around the world who, in choosing Jesus, have lost nearly everything.

Choose to Lose in three simple steps…

1.Choose to lose: Sign up!

What do you love? Your x-Box, your bed, phone, chocolate, fast food, Instagram, listening to music, sport, playing guitar, watching telly? Could you get sponsored to give it up for a short time to stand with those who have to give up everything to follow Jesus? Sign up now and we’ll send you an awesome pack to help you lose what you love!

2.Raise money, prayer and awareness…

Set up a JustGiving page to raise money and support young Christians around the world who have lost family, home, friends, safety and freedom because of their love of Jesus. We’ll send you resources to help you raise money, and to also reflect, pray and tell others what you are doing and why!

3. Lose what you love…

Choose how long! Some have gone a day, 48 hours a week or even 6 weeks throughout Lent! Join with hundreds of others by giving up something you love to stand with those prepared to lose everything for their faith in Jesus. Get inspired to live out your faith with greater courage and conviction!
