Hello! Thanks for coming over to check out my Patreon page. In 2017 I completed a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. It was an amazing journey that couldn't have happened without God guiding my footsteps each and every mile from Georgia to Maine. Being legally blind made my thru hike a bit more challenging than the average person. The Not by Sight community and fans (you!) helped push me and keep me going all 2,190 miles. Thank you!

Now for the news. The big question I get is, “What's next Disciple?” Well, glad you asked. God is calling me back out to the trail. This time I’m headed West. I'll be PCT (Pacific Crest Trail) bound April 2019. To make things more interesting, Halo and our two youngest children will take the journey with me...but not on their feet. While I spend my days and most nights out on the trail, Halo and the kids will live out of our vehicle and camper, serving other hikers as we make our way to Canada.

Your support through Patreon will enable us to minister to folks we meet along the trail; serve as trail angels for hikers through trail magic; and provide resources to help us make the grueling 2,650 mile journey. In short, your support helps us serve.

Below you will find the steps for how you can donate to our mission. Plus, the perks you will receive!


By joining us at a monthly giving tier, you have the opportunity to become part of a close knit group. We'll be able to share with you immediate happenings on the trail as well as help you on your next adventure!

We are grateful for all of your kind words and encouragement. Keep watching my Not By Sight channel for more news and follow along as we get ready to walk by faith, not by sight.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13

See you on the trail,
Disciple



How do I become a patron?

First: give yourself a high five for being amazing and joining our community!

  1. At the top of our page, click the orange 'become a patron' button OR select your desired tier from the right-hand side of the page.
  2. You'll be taken to a page where you can select a tier available OR choose a dollar value with no rewards.
  3. Select 'continue' and you'll be taken to a confirmation page where you can add your payment info. 
  4. Select 'confirm payment' at the right-hand of the confirmation page to finalize your payment.

Billing details

  • After your initial immediate charge, all following charges will take place on the 1st of each month. If you become a patron to us towards the end of the month, this might come across as a double charge; but the initial charge acts as payment for the month in which you became a patron and the next payment is for the month following.
  • You can cancel your membership at any time while logged into your Patreon account.
  • Any other questions you may have about billing, etc. can be found here.
