  • “I consider the One18 Movement is directed towards those not already connected with the church. They have helped train our students in peer-to-peer evangelism and in street ministry, that is both relevant and authentic. In a church culture filled with production and disconnectedness with society, their training was essential in both teaching our students how to talk about their faith in authentic and non-threatening ways and in teaching our students about meeting the needs of the world around them.”

    Kevin Mattison - Associate Pastor Mosaic Church
  • “I have always appreciated the professionalism and creativity displayed by Jason Rising and the One18 Movement. Additionally, any teams he has ever brought with him in ministry have not only been excellent, but they've been incredible servant-ministers.”

    Rich Jones - The Element Church Pittsburgh, PA
  • “The One18 Movement maintained a level of excellence in training and preparing our students for ministry--while also balancing it with ministering to the students in a valuable, effective way that they will carry with them after the experience.”

    Brandon Ward - Oasis Christian Center Staten Island, NY
  • “Life changing doesn't begin to describe the One 18 leadership experience. While reflecting on my experience this summer I can truly see the incubator God placed me in. I was stretched, I was molded, and I grew immensely. I learned so many new skills that I never thought I would, along with developing strengths that became evident to me while on this journey. Gods plan is truly so much greater than I can imagine and it was a blast being a part of it. Through hands on leadership training, organic relational evangelism, and spiritually focused outreach God used One 18 to grow me as a leader and bring me so much closer to him! ”

    Duncan Oleshak - Summer Leadership Experience


I just finished reading a book called "Anything" by Jennie Allen. There aren't too many books that really can get to my heart deeply, but this one did. ANYTHING is the title, because it's a prayer Jennie and her husband prayed to God. As she talked about it, I remembered being 14 years old sitting in a room full of bunk beds with other teenage girls and we were all laughing and having a great time on our youth retreat, but deep down there were these feelings that had begun to stir in my heart. I didn't want a normal life. I wanted to give everything I had to Jesus. I had heard about him my whole life, but I some how started to realize at this age how much I loved him. I was willing to pray the ANYTHING prayer and that lead me to where I am now.
