TJ's April 2018 Newsletter

Hello TJ's Family & Friends,

Just a few updates:

Michael & Sara Thorsby had a blast April 13th leading a spontaneous worship set at Burn 24-7 Greenville (Greenville, NC). Jordan Lane (drums), Caleb Brumbaugh (bass) and Derrick Stalnaker (electric) collaborated with us as guest musicians as we had the honor to lead at The Warehouse.

Thorsby Band (Michael & Sara Thorsby) - The Thorsby Band is ridiculously ready to release some new music! Some of the spontaneous tracks we recorded at Barton College with Jordan Lane, Derrick Stalnaker and James Berry are currently being tweaked, mixed and mastered at PureMix Studios. We'll also be working with Disc Makers and CDBaby again for post-production and promo stuff to share with the world! We've launched a GoFundMe campaign to help cover the immediate expenses while also giving the opportunity for others to sow into the larger vision of TJ's. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make it happen!!!

Fiery Remnant Ministries - We're still in the process of separating some of the ministry branches of TJ's (including Burn 24-7 New Bern) to our recently formed hub called Fiery Remnant Ministries. The website is still under construction as we attempt to give language to what we're doing and we're also in the process of establishing it as a 501(c)3. There will be limited action on our sites for the next few months as we finalize details. We're just "preparing the fields for rain!" These shifts will allow us to accept tax-deductible donations for ministry-specific portions of our mission, which will reduce the burden on TJ's as well as build structure (wineskins) for anticipated future growth. We welcome your prayers for clarity, financial provision and all the behind-the-scenes logistics taking place to establish this ministry with excellence!

Venue (Next potential TJ's CAVE location) - They are still working on that particular property we've been prayerfully considering as they are also exploring their potential tenant options to maximize rent. We are still very interested and just waiting to see how that pans out since they are asking way more than our current budget allows. We have our eye on a few others options but we're not in a rush since we're currently short on both money and time in this season and don't want to put our family in a bind. We would love to be in a facility by July of 2018 but we'll see what happens. We may just rent another office that's big enough for a practice facility for our band (and all our gear) to hold us over until we're confident in signing a high-dollar lease. Feel free to donate to the cause!!!

TJ's administratively and financially supports all of these branches so we encourage you to DONATE as you feel led so we can better serve our community. We still have plenty of past, present and future investments to cover so every bit helps! Buy some merch or prayerfully consider becoming one of our SPONSORS!!! 
Will YOU support us?

Until next time...
