Choose to Never Settle This Easter Sunday

At first glance, April 16, 2006, seemed like a normal Easter Sunday for Higher Calling Church and Pastor Don. But this one would prove to be different. This one was special because Pastor Don was told by the best doctors in Indianapolis that it would be his last. And they were right. Multiple Myeloma, the blood cancer Pastor Don had been battling for seven years, was now taking over his body and his strength but not his resolve to preach Easter Sunday and launch the Never Settle series, a message given to him by God. “Never settle for anything less …

World Water Day: 5 Reasons to Celebrate Clean Water

Celebrating International Women’s Day 2015

March 8 commemorates International Women’s Day – a day in which we celebrate the strong, impactful female leaders around us. But why should inspirational, empowered women get only one day?

Why not show appreciation to the female mentors in your life by telling them – and by supporting a cause in their name? You could give an orphaned girl a school uniform so she can complete her schooling …

Making a Splash from Seattle

About this time two years ago, something lit a fire in me. I’d been involved in Never Settle for about a year already, donating here and there and occasionally talking to Jeremy about upcoming projects. When I heard there was a non-profit benefit for one of Never Settle’s partners in my area, I was intrigued. I signed up. It was a benefit for Splash, a Seattle-based organization dedicated to providing clean water for children around the world. Although I didn’t know a single person in the room, I was welcomed like an old friend, quickly getting ushered from person to …

Investing in Haitian Leaders

One of the most effective ways to create sustainable real world change is by investing in leaders. Why? Because leadership matters, especially in the poorest of areas where there is a lack of clean water, education, mentoring, and other opportunities you and I have access to every day. This is especially true in Haiti where more than half of the population lives on less than $1 per day. Many poor Haitian communities depend on leadership from the church to provide daily needs. The community expectation of church pastors is much higher than in the United States. Haitian Pastors are more …
