John Redmond and Walter Weikel will be embarking on their tour through the Johnson City District on Monday, July 21 to raise awareness and funds for our church plant in the Czech Republic. John and his wife Denise will be taking over for Michelle and Gary Young in early August. 



Please join us for all or part of the ride. We'd love the company! If you don't want to ride, bring a sack lunch and meet us at Otterbein UMC for lunch or just stop by the church nearest you to show your support and meet John. If your church would like to take a special offering beforehand we'd love to collect it (Circuit Rider Style) on our trip. We will even have the ability to accept credit card donations at each stop.

If you can't be there in person, or miss your chance to give during your church's offering, you can donate online here. We have several levels of sponsorship to choose from, and you can opt to donate using your credit card through PayPal, or pledge to send us a check.
