Over the last 7 years, you have helped send me and my ministry Is This The Day I Die all over the World. The vision I have for this ministry is to come alongside established local churches, ministries, and missionaries to help them continue the calling God has given them. I do this in a myriad of ways, including setting up work projects, teaching leadership seminars, and preaching sermons.I have also been active in using poetry as a creative way to communicate messages I feel God has given me.
God has used my poetry (a.k.a. Poem Noise) as a platform to encourage and change the lives of many. Because of the fruit that has come as a result of my poetry, the team that is behind me and I feel, one of the best ways I can glorify God is to continue pursuing the gift of poetry as a means to reach people and communicate the gospel.
We feel as though God has asked us to take Poem Noise to a professional and global level.
I will start by providing a series of 3 FREE videos to be used as a creative teaching tool for college and youth pastors. Each video will consist of a poem I will perform that will be proceeded by a 5 minute sermon/talk, in which I will break down the message behind the poem. Anyone will be able to access the videos through a website designed to host the videos. This website will include discussion questions and follow-up videos to take the experience to the deepest level possible.
While completing this video project, I will also be working on releasing my very first full length studio album with poetry and music under the band name "SLYE AND THE STORY". Traveling and performing with the new album will enable me to further promote the video series.

My team needs $1800. This will allow us to pay the crew that is filming, producing, and promoting the videos. As you donate through this website you will receive gifts that correlate with your particular donation.
