In August, I will begin a year of mission service with the Presbyterian Church (USA) as a Young Adult Volunteer (YAV). I will be working in Denver, Colorado, with “Discovering Opportunities for Outreach and Reflection” (DOOR), a faith-based network providing opportunities for service. My YAV year will be focused on: Community, Spiritual Formation, Exploration of Vocation, and Social Justice.

In Denver, other YAVs and I will live in intentional Christian community and explore urban ministry by working in service agencies situated throughout the city.

To serve as a YAV, I must raise at least $3,000 by December 31, with a team goal of $6,000 per person. Please consider making a financial commitment to my YAV year. DOOR is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. You may donate by check, MasterCard, Visa or Discover card.

1. Checks should be made payable to “DOOR” (on the memo line, write “Denver, Emma Moore”), and mailed to the DOOR National Office, 430 W. 9th Avenue, Denver, CO 80204.

2. For credit card donations, call DOOR at (303) 295-3667. Alternatively, visit the DOOR website,, and click on the “DONATE” link in the top right corner of the web page. (In the “Donation Designation” box, insert “Denver, Emma Moore.”)

DOOR will provide me with a fundraising report each month. I am soliciting your donation with the understanding that DOOR/YAV have complete discretion and control over the use of all donated funds. All donated funds are used for the ministry program as a whole.

Whether or not you are able to make a financial commitment, please commit to pray for all YAVs and our ministries and for DOOR and the people of Denver and the other cities where DOOR ministers. Thank you for considering these commitments. I am grateful.

(If you are reading this and I have your mailing address or you happen to be a Northminster Presbyterian Church-Indy member, you will most likely receive a similar fundraising letter in the mail).
