A Good Place to Give

The Jeubs are looking at a very blessed Christmas, but it is going to be tougher than we’re used to. The ministry of which I head up, Training Minds Ministry, is not doing well. I have not taken a paycheck from the ministry for over a month, and it looks like I won’t for the rest of this year.

We bit off a lot this year, training more young people and parents than every before. We marched our campers to a great deal of competitive success in our first NITC program, and we hosted camps in Colorado, New Hampshire, California and Florida this year. We launched online classes so students can be trained by the best coaches to speak and debate, no matter where they live. Check out our website and read the fantastic testimonies.

Make no mistake about it: training the mind for action is ministry, a ministry that is needed today more than ever. Not only are these young people moving on in competition (they are the best in the nation), but they move on as leaders in the workforce, in politics, in their families and neighborhoods. See, training the mind means training in how to think, speak and persuade. The skills our campers and students learn are second-to-none. Check out what one of our campers, Nic Townes, said after attaining semi-finalist status at Nationals in June:


I can honestly say, at least on Esther’s and my behalf, that any and all success we experience is a direct result of the investments Training Minds and NITC have made in us. Thank you ALL again and happy hunting for those still in the race.

No doubt Nic will go on as a strong leader “in the race” for the Kingdom. As will hundreds of students who go through our programs and thousands who use our resources. Attend a speech and debate tournament in your area and you’ll see what I mean. If you had any doubt in the youth of today, they’ll be washed away when you see these future leaders speak and persuade in their rounds.

But we need help to keep the ministry going. We are opening up registration for next summer in January, and down-payments and other financial commitments need to be made now. Besides, our prices are figured out ahead of time, and these prices greatly depend on how much in donations come into the ministry in December. There are many families who would not be able to afford these camps and classes without the generosity of our donors.

Would you consider making an end-of-year donation to Training Minds Ministry? It is completely tax-deductible. You can be rest assured that your generosity will go to doing great work for young people.

Thanks for considering this. Donate here. And Merry Christmas!
