Tentmakers

“After this Paul left Athens and went to Corinth. And he found a Jew named Aquila, a native of Pontus, recently come from Italy with his wife Priscilla…And he went to see them, and because he was of the same trade he stayed with them and worked, for they were tentmakers by trade. And he reasoned in the synagogue every Sabbath, and tried to persuade Jews and Greeks.”

Acts 18: 1-4 (ESV)

Ministry can’t always be fully funded by the kindness and generosity of people’s heart. Give us money! Now.

If you don’t we’ll do it ourselves. Here are some staff side hustles.

Michael Mordenga

Mike is a college minister for Campus One80. He spends his days sharing his faith with the Universities of Rochester, NY. Along the way, he writes elaborate hyperbole of fantasy, science fiction and perilous adventures that are laced with witty comedy. He is happily married to Lynn, who would like you to know that she is not a geek like him. Mike and Lynn are the proud new parents of Timothy.

Daniel Pace

Daniel hails from several different states in the United States, having moved and traveled extensively. He currently resides in the great state or Oregon with his wife, looking forward to glimpses of sunlight through the clouds that frequently cover the Willamette Valley. He’s an introvert by nature and is perfectly content to stay home with his books and coffee, away from the chatter of the busy world. He loves reading, playing piano, magic, and people watching. He secretly dreams that through all these things, he will unlock the door to discovering Narnia or time travel back to Middle Earth, as he is convinced this world is just not for him. 

In the meantime, he spends his time discovering his own other world, learning it’s languages, meeting the interesting creatures and people there, and writing down their stories. He hopes to create new relationships with fellow fantasy lovers through his books and genuinely thanks every reader for joining him n the journey. He has been writing since he was thirteen and doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. 

Ethan Cook

Ethan’s passion and love for woodworking was initiated after having to make hand made gifts for christmas one year.  Creating something with your hands is challenging and a great adventure.  Ethan loves to use rare and  exotic wood from around the world on his wood lathe – spinning things round. This hobby is a mental relaxation, enjoyment and exciting challenge for Ethan. Jesus was a woodworker too!
