Zechariah (20, Kennesaw, Ga) - In the one life that I have been given, to change a life, one day at a time, means everything to me! I want to be on board with an organization that gives me the chance to change the world!
Zoe (22, radford, virginia) - Using creativity to impact the world.
Azurá (21 , Storrs, CT ) - I want to join World Changer 365 because God has blessed me with a talent in playing basketball & I really want to use it to glorify him. I am so excited to get started and put together an event where I can raise money to help kids go to school and what better way to do it then with the sport that I love & that God has allowed me to play! lets do it!!!
Kaleigh (21, Norfolk, Virginia) - I want to live a life to the full (John 10:10) and part of living my life to the full is being able to give back! I desire to make a difference in this world and have the opportunity to change someone's life.
Brianne (23, Atlanta, GA) - Who wouldn't want to join this inspiring Global Initiative?! "Do you for others" just makes so much sense. I've been given much in life, and I want to give back. It's exciting to think that, with a coach and a teammate like JamQuest, my life can actually make a global impact.
Nathanael (19, Montreal, Quebec) - I personally started to think about human suffering last summer as I was doing an internship in Hamilton, Ontario. Being a believer in Christ, I couldn't help but ask myself the question: If there is a loving and powerful God, why are there still so many people in the world going through severe emotional and physical suffering? Something I’ve come across in my own research is that the Earth has enough food for every single person to eat at least 3000 calories a day. That blew me away. It showed me that the blame for human suffering is not necessarily on God. The fact is, we actually have the tools to make the change we all want to see by helping those who are in need of our help. A good friend of mine hosted a JamQuest fundraiser in Toronto and encouraged me to do the same here in Montreal. So, I decided that I would because I believe it is a great way to not only help those who are in need around the world, but to also raise awareness about the realities that we do not face here in North America.
Claudía (27, Escondido ) - God has given me so much, I'd like to return the care and love he gives me. Even when I can't see him!
William (18, Charlottesville) - I want to make a difference for children all around the world. Not just in my community, but in the communities of the children that may not have the chance just due to lack of money.
Rebecca (33, wellington) - My heart is filled with a need to service. Giving out of my pocket would not be enough. I'd need to travel and help face-to-face.
Bryce (23, Norfolk VA) - Growing up my heart was drawn towards helping others in need thanks to my mother exposing me to movie and documentaries that displayed the major problems in other Countries. For most of my life I've always wanted to do something, but never got that push or opportunity. Now, with JamQuest and newfound love for Jesus, I love forward to changing the world using the talents God gave me!
Aven (6, Valley village) - Every Thanksgiving Avens school organizes a Thanksgiving dinner for the less fortunate each grade is responsible for bringing in a certain food for the meal while the older class is responsible for serving the meal on Thanksgiving. Aven insisted on joining the others in helping prepare this meal, when he went he saw kids there with their families kids as young as a few months old and it struck a cord with him. Every day since then he talks about these kids that he saw and asks what we can do to help them. I did some online research for something he could really get involvedin, that's when I came across this organization. We went over it together and without hesitation he said "I want to do this" so here we are!
Marc Persing (21, Madison, NJ) - I want to join the world changer 365 because I believe if Jesus was here on earth right now he would be behind the mission. What an awesome idea.
Lynn (21, Cape Coral Florida) - I want to be of help to someone in need...
Ashley Burrowes (15, Stoughton MA) - I would love to join the World Changer 365 because I feel so much sympathy for the kids in Kenya. I always remember that someone has it worse than I do, and in this case, they have it a lot worse than I do, and if I know I can make a difference just by playing basketball with my friends and sponsor 5 kids (or even more!) then I would be extremely willing to do all in my power to help them. I already love helping people and putting smiles on their faces, so if I can do that on an even larger scale, that would make me even more happy!
Rachel Gonzalez (19, San Diego, CA) - I believe that we, as humans, inherently want to impact this world and leave a legacy. Meeting and serving the needs of those in disparity was an integral part of Jesus's ministry and is something I am deeply passionate about. There are so many needs in this world that it is very easy to grow overwhelmed and not have the encouragement to take that first leap of faith. If enough people come together with the motivation and love of Christ, I believe we can provide a tremendous impact.
George Sawamura (20, Boulder CO) - I haven't served as much as I can and would.
Marin Lusk (20, Boulder CO) - I made the decision to care. I must play an active role in changing the world rather than ignoring its problems.
Paige Duckworth (24, Atlanta GA) I want to do my part to change the world.
Kaelyn Whetzel (19, Harrisonburg VA) - I had the opportunity to be one of the Camp Miracles directors this past summer at Camp HOPE for Kids, and I was so impacted by the impact this program has on all the mentees and mentors. I saw how much the mentees loved their mentors and being at camp, having the "camp experience." I saw so many of them grow over the 5 camp weeks, and saw just how privileged I am to have camp in my backyard (Philadelphia is my hometown). I was talking to a young girl from northeast philly during CM 3, and asked if she loved her time at camp so far and if she'd come back. She replied with "Camp is so much fun, I love being here... I would love to come back, but my parents can't afford it." As an administrator, to send a kid from north philly to camp for a week is only $25. I saw how easily it is for me and people in general to spend that on extra food in a week. $25 to send a child to camp could be the difference in showing that kid what love, freedoms and joy is, especially God's love. This could be the difference in even making more disciples. I see the need and I want to continue to give back, not just see something and keep walking through life.
Alex Maule (21, Bronx NY) - I want to bring change! I'd like to inspire the people around me to help the less fortunate while having fun doing so! I've been so inspired by Jamquest since I took part in the Jamquest Boston in 2013. Its been so cool watch what God has been doing over the years but I figure why continue to watch and not participate? It's cool to watch change happen but personally bringing change to someone's life is even cooler! I'm ready to bring change to the people around and to the world!
Alex Weeks (20, University of South Carolina)
Cory Cole (21, University of Georgia) - "I believe in being the change I want to see in this world; I want to use the skills and abilities I've been blessed with to make a difference! "
Carly Shortland (21, Athens GA) - I love any opportunity to serve, in any way.
Melissa Cisneros (Blacksburg, VA)
Kyle Roepe (18, Athens GA) - I want to help change the cycle of poverty and bring hope to kids!
MacKenzie Shoff (19, UMASS Amherst) - I feel chosen and empowered to use what I have to give. I am so psyched to get behind the JQ cause of changing the world one kid at a time.
Ernest Boakye (Toronto, Canada)
Jorge Medranda (Toronto, Canada)
Mark Llorens (17, Herndon VA) - Giving back to others is something I've grown to love over the years. Having an opportunity like this to give back to someone in need brings me joy. This is something small I can do to help kids.
Emily Roberts (21, Athens GA) - I just stinkin love what JamQuest is about. I love that it pushes me to be myself and help others while doing it. I can't wait to see how much it's gonna blow up!
Kurt Protacio (Toronto, Canada)
Jenna Brady - middle school teacher in Massachusetts
Nick Rorabaugh (20, Athens GA) - "James 1:27 Just trying to change the world!"

Daniel Van Auken (18, Boston MA) - I just want to do what I can to help those in need.
Elle McCord (21, University of Georgia) - I believe that everyone can make a difference. Small ripples can have big effects. The key is to increasing the quantity of the ripples, and that starts with a first step. I am taking this step because it I want to make a difference in a kids life.
Noah Kreider (20, York University) - I am inspired to try and do everything I can to help others in need. Whether big or small, it is important to put others before yourself, this is just one way to do it! And I'm excited to be able to work with JQ to use my talents to help others!
Toronto Campus Ministry - We want to inspire the great city of Toronto that our talents can make a difference in the lives of people around the world. Our goal is to raise over $1000 to send to the programs in Cambodia!
David Martin (20, North Carolina) - I want to fully utilize my talents for God. God gave me the ability to play basketball, so I want to glorify Him through it. I want to serve people by playing basketball.
Dermot Adelmann (17, Natick MA) - Hoping to improve the local and global communities in which I am involved and have the ability to impact.
Noah Mata (24 - Philadelphia, PA) I want to be an agent of actual, tangible, and ethereal change in this world.
Cody Porter (23, Kennesaw State University) - Knowing God's heart, I feel personally responsible to help those in need, especially widows and orphans, the poor and needy. Jam Quest has always been a platform for helping people replicate the heart of the Lord in this way!!
Ross Washington (Blacksburg, VA)
David Fleurant (20, San Antonio TX) - Because I may not be able to change the whole world, but I can change the whole world of a child, one child at a time!

Brandon Yi (22, Potomac Valley VA) - I want to change the world.
Christian Moncion (15, Virginia Beach) - I am 15 right now, and just seeing kids my age and even younger going through hard times is so impactful. I always complain about how my life is now, when it could be so much worse. God has really blessed me with an easy life, and I take it for granted sometimes. I want to help children who weren't given such an easy life. I want to make a difference in the world, and most importantly make a difference in someone's life who needs it!
Amy Rosenquist (21, Norfolk VA) - I want to change the world! I have been blessed so much and I want to give back. I want to help one kid's life get better!
Bailey Loban (20, Clemson SC) - After going to Kenya and building relationships with people, I feel extremely convicted to help the boys I met be able to get an education and pursue their dreams!
Natalie Boger (Indianapolis IN, 24) - Serving the poor and working with HOPE worldwide have such a special place in my heart. My trips with HOPE worldwide have drastically changed how I see the gospel of Jesus and it has changed my dreams for the rest of my life.

Tajera Day (19, Marietta GA) - I want to give back to JQ because I have received so many blessings throughout my life and it would be a privilege to give back to children that are in need.
