Special Year-End Matching Opportunity

November 2022

Dear Friends and Partners,

I’m grateful to be writing to you as we reflect on the many ways God has blessed our ministry this year. 2022 has been incredible, filled with great blessing and fruitfulness. To everyone who has partnered with us, on behalf of our Board of Directors, our staff, and myself, thank you!

Today, I’m offering you one more way to engage in ministry with us. Some of our ministry partners have generously issued a Year-End Matching Fund Challenge. Every gift dated on or before December 31st will be doubled up to $25,000! Will you join us?

In almost 30 years, through the grace of God, we have never turned a student away due to lack of resources. In 2022, through the continued generosity of our friends like you, we raised and distributed over $20,000 in scholarships and financial assistance that impacted over 100 students! God is faithfully providing for our organization and the young people we are ministering to.

As you prayerfully consider helping us meet our Year-End Match Challenge, I’d encourage you to review the 2022 Executive Summary enclosed with this letter. There you can learn more about the difference your gift can make in the life of a young person.

Our goal, from the very beginning, has been to equip, engage, and empower the next generation for Christ. This year nearly 550 teens participated in SSI/LEAD programs and camps. Here in Michigan we’ve completed multiple school Onsite Programs and three weeks of our LEAD summer camp. Our affiliate states all held their own LEAD summer camps as well. It has been a very fruitful season of ministry as we continue to see increased attendance over the past two years.

Whatever success SSI has experienced is solely due to God’s favor and faithfulness along with His provision through His people. We praise God for you! If you are new to SSI, please know that it would be an honor to be considered worthy of your support.

Please, join with us in preparing the next generation! Would you consider a generous tax-deductible gift? Remember, every donation dated on or before December 31 will be matched up to $25,000. Every dollar makes a difference.

Thank you for striving alongside us in ministry as we work to equip and disciple these young people!

With sincere thankfulness,

Joseph Cecil
President and CEO
