2018 Project Teams
Nigel & Jessie's $25K Goal | Fundraising Goal: $25,000
MoveIn Founder and Director Nigel Paul and wife Jessie Paul will be raising $25,000 that will go towards this year's Prayer Journey projects, including Equipping MoveIners for Disciple-Making, Support for Amazing Staff, and Where Needed Most. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leaders.
Support for Amazing Staff | Fundraising Goal: $10,000
This project will help MoveIn Vision Team staff who are under supported. We consider all of our staff to be amazing and in the support raising model some staff are better supported than others. We are excited for this project to give a boost to those who need it. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.
MoveIner Care Resources | Fundraising Goal: $10,000
MoveIners are givers. They have moved into their neighbourhoods because they want to pray and make disciples. There will always be costs to this emotionally, physically, relationally and spiritually. The MoveIner Resource Team seeks to encourage current MoveIners so they can be healthy in these areas and, ultimately, stay in their neighbourhoods. Funds will go towards pest control, gifts, opportunities for retreat, personal visits and more. Help us help over 350 MoveIners in ways we've never been able to! Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.

Los Angeles Vision Trip | Fundraising Goal: $3,000
Help the Fischhoffs get to LA to help mobilize for the unreached, urban poor in that city! Mike, Felicia and their two boys would love to take a trip to Los Angeles, California to research neighbourhoods and spread the MoveIn vision among the believers in theare. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.

Latin American Mobilization | Fundraising Goal: $5,000
This project is designed in order to take the vision of MoveIn to the churches of Mexico. The funds will go towards hosting events and promotional materials. Mobilization efforts will include a trip to Tijuana, a strategic city with several qualifying patches. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.
Project Leader: Josue Alanis
European Growth | Fundraising Goal: $50,000
In 2017, our first ever European Vision Team was formed! This project will help equip the team with the funds to travel and mobilize in countries where there are not yet teams, including Spain, France, and Italy. There is a lot of potential in these countries for a spirit-led movement like MoveIn. The project will also fund a month-long trip to Germany, visiting cities and neighbourhoods and meeting with key local Christian leaders and those interested in moving in.

Trauma Healing Training | Fundraising Goal: $3,500
Many of the people living in MoveIn communities have experienced trauma from living in war-torn countries, growing up in poverty, losing loved ones, etc. Trauma happens when a person feels overwhelmed with fear, horror and helpless in the face of death or physical harm to themselves or someone they love. It affects every area of a person's life and can last a lifetime. Often the pain is experienced in silence, behind closed doors. As MoveIners, we want to help our neighbours heal by creating safe spaces to bring what is in the dark into the light. This project is a follow-up to a 2017 project that provided the opportunity for a few MoveIners to travel to receive initial training in Bible-Based Trauma Healing. Funds from this year will help the same individuals get advanced training to be able to lead training for MoveIn teams. Help MoveIners become equipped to enter into the brokenness of trauma in their communities.

MoveIner Global Exchange | Fundraising Goal: $10,000
MoveIn is a Global movement. From Asia to Africa to North America, we dream of mobilizing the church to enter in and be a part of unreached, urban poor communities. We also dream of mobilizing MoveIners to join teams across the world in the most marginalized places in the world. This project will raise money to help send a MoveIner to visit a team in a different country. In doing so, they will have the opportunity to encourage teams and explore the opportunity that God might be calling them to become a MoveIner in a new country. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.
Project Leader: Sheryce Nguyen
Student MoveIner Workshops | Fundraising Goal: $1,500
Many MoveIners are in full time studies. What does it look like to be committed at school and then come home and invest in the lives of neighbours? Seeking God in planning and time management allows students to be fully present each day, confident that they are spending time and energy in ways that glorify God. Funding from this project will go towards a one-day conference for students who are currently moved in and those who are interested injoining MoveIn, to equip and encourage students to thrive both in school and MoveIn. Funds will be used at the discretion of the project leader.
Project Leader: Jemcah Shantz
Cross-Cultural Arts & Worship Training | Fundraising Goal: $3,500
This project will help fund a group of MoveIners to take the Arts for a Better Future course through World of Worship. The training will help MoveIners broaden their understanding of unreached people groups and their cultures, and help them create environments that are more inviting and inclusive to those in their neighbourhoods. The emphasis is not just on "worship" but on using the arts for Kingdom goals like trauma healing, community building, and identity keeping. The training will also help music leaders at our annual conference to better understand genres and how to do research before using an art form.
