Singer/songwriter Shawn McDonald will be sharing his gift on Wednesday, April 10th, at the first annual Sending Forth concert at William Jessup University. All the proceeds from the concert will help fund the WJU missions teams (all college students), who are going to Cambodia, Romania, Brazil, and Kenya this summer.
Partnering with Agape International Missions, the Cambodia team is working to end sex trafficking, while the Brazil team is working with Restoration Ministries in Sao Paulo to reach children and families in the slums of the city. Some of the students are even staying behind to serve in these countries for the entire summer. The concert also features fellow artists, I Am They, and Like Zion.
Shawn McDonald recently released a new album titled "The Analog Sessions," a collection of nine hits re-recorded live, and also includes two new songs. In addition to making music, Shawn has a passion for ministry and missions, and strives to reach people with his music in any way he possibly can. "I'm always trying to better myself and grow because the instant you stop learning, you start to die," Shawn says. "I'm in a season of growth right now, just really striving hard to be more intentional, to hone my craft and to not just give part of my heart to it, but to wholeheartedly be faithful to the gifts God has given me. I want to impact the world, be a part of change and see the kingdom of God become real and active in people's lives."
The Sending Forth concert will take place this Wednesday, April 10th, at 7:00 P.M., at William Jessup University in Rocklin, California. You can purchase tickets to help support the WJU missions teams, and catch Shawn McDonald, I Am They, and Like Zion, by clicking here.
