Decyfer Down

In Life and living, Music on 18 August 09 at 8:56 am

A good friend is seeking support for ministry.  Josh Oliver, who I have known since he was a little guy, singing and playing with his family at Open Door Baptist Church in Morehead City, NC, is currently the drummer for Decyfer Down, a great Christian band.  Decyfer Down has accepted this calling on their lives — to spread the gospel of Christ with music.  Their style is powerful and reaches out to many would might not ever step into a church building.  They are preparing for another tour and desparately wish to bring their wives and kids along on this mission trip.  Please read the following request from Josh and respond generously!

You can contact Josh directly —   Email:  or leave a comment on this post and I’ll get back to you with additional details.

This is a new season for Decyfer Down as many incredible opportunities have
been given to us including a 53 city tour this fall from coast to coast.
We are writing you to ask if you would partner with us as we raise the
funds for new transportation.

In the past 10 years we have gone through 4 vans and over 800,000 miles of
driving, and as we approach this new chapter we have been given an amazing
opportunity to step into a Prevost Coach that has all the right amenities
and sleeping for 12 people.  Moving from a van to a bus is a huge step,
so we have been praying about it for the past 3 months with the
accountability partners in our lives. We have experienced numerous trials,
but also many amazing acts of God as we toured around the country sharing
the message He has given us.
God has provided us a class A CDL driver, full time mechanic and even a
parking place in just a short period of time for the bus.

We would love to take our wives and kids out on the road with us to
experience the lives touched with us.  As the ministry grows so does our
into many different communities, and the option to show up in these cities
fully rested would be an amazing feeling!

We also envision taking young men from the local community on the road for
short trips . We believe that mentoring and being an example for them
would really challenge them to live a faith filled life .

We have partnered with a bus ministry out of Nashville TN and we are
looking to raise funds to purchase the bus shown in the attachments listed

We are trying to raise $75,000 dollars for the bus and $25,000 dollars for
a bus fund and trailer.

A tax deduction through our non-profit partner is available .

We also would like to offer anyone or church that is willing to donate
$6,000 dollars or more… a special offer of:
1)      Free private Decyfer Down concert
2)      Vip Tickets to Decyfer Down Affiliated events (tours or festivals)
3)      A day in the studio as we record album number 3

Please hear our heart and pray that God will continue to use us and expand
the ministry and the calling that he has in our lives.  We look forward in
sharing with you how many hearts and lives have been greatly changed as we
continue this journey.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers
on this opportunity ……
