Hello TJ's Family & Friends,
Just a few updates:
Thorsby Band (Michael & Sara Thorsby) - The Thorsby band is ready to release some new music with Burn DNA! We need your help! Some of the spontaneous tracks we recorded at Barton College with Jordan Lane, Derrick Stalnaker & 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. The Thorsby Band primarily funds the vision, mission and all branches of TJ's (including ministry branches like Burn 24-7 New Bern). Up to this point, we haven't received any personal financial gain, income or salary from any of these adventures over the last decade as we've chosen to invest back into our community instead. Eventually that will change when these branches are self-sufficient so we can pay bills AND support paid staff!
Fiery Remnant Ministries - We're 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 constrution as we attempt to give language to what we're doing and we're also in the process of establishing it as a 501C3. 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 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 - One of the preferred venues we were pursuing/negotiating revealed some extensive roof damage after the last snow storm. That was a blessing in disquise to find out BEFORE signing a lease to avoid costly repairs while sitting idle. We have our eye on a few different options but we're not in a rush since we're currently short on both money and time in this season. We would love to be in a facility by July of 2018 but we'll see what happens...

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.

Will YOU support us?
Until next time...
