During 2020 God gave us a vision: a revival sweeping the country, radically impacting drug addicts and bringing the hope of Jesus to the hurting and struggling. With that in mind and with the support of people like you, we launched “The Story Tour’ and held events in churches, high schools, and community centers across the country. Each event is a one-night musical journey featuring the hope-filled original music of ASB, live speakers, powerful testimonies & teaching, times of ministry and God stories from across the USA. Stories of freedom from addiction, shame and suicide. Stories of amazing healings and restored marriages. All designed to communicate one idea:

With Jesus, your story isn't over!

At every event we see 10-15 people receive Jesus as their savior. And many others flood the altars to receive prayer and help for their brokenness. At our very first event we helped one man throw away drugs and alcohol. We recently heard that he is still clean & sober today! We hear countless stories of how God has used The Story Tour to help bring freedom into people’s lives. And it’s all been possible because of your prayers and financial support. So thank you!

Since Fall of 21 The Story Tour has traveled 2800 miles to 11 cities in 6 states. Beginning Fall of 22, we launch out again traveling another 5500 miles to 13 additional cities on our mission to see a revival in the lives of the addicted, hurting and struggling sweep the nation. This is a huge step of faith for us. While we keep our expenses as low as possible, each event still costs us about $8000 in marketing, auditorium rental fees, gas, food, lodging and people costs for our team of 11.. We recoup some of our costs through ticket and product sales at the events, but because we keep our ticket prices low, we rarely recover our event costs. We’re asking for your help to make our fall 22 and spring 23 events possible.

In addition we would like to record an album in early 2023. The Story Tour features stories of freedom from across the country, with the music of Allan Scott Band as the soundtrack. Most of the music used in the tour is from an album called “The Story” that we recorded in 2018. We have written a new batch of songs and now have a goal of recording a new album of music that can be used to update the next edition Story Tour events. And we need your help!

In a study of 5,412 people, conducted by the CDC in July of 2020, 1 out of 4 people said they had thought about committing suicide during the 30 days preceding the survey. 13.3% said they were coping with the pandemic by using drugs and alcohol.*

Domestic abuse numbers have skyrocketed. Many have lost family members, others have lost businesses and jobs, and many more are feeling hopeless. Inside the PA Department of Corrections (where we are working now to take ‘The Story Tour’), prisons have been mostly locked down since March of 2020. Religious gatherings, family visitation, physical exercise in gym areas and other movements inside prisons have been severely restricted for a long time. People are hurting more than ever before. We personally know a lot of people who were crushed by 2020/2021. That’s why we believe the mission of Found & Favored Ministries & ‘The Story Tour’ is more important TODAY, and this year, than ever before.

We can’t do it without you! ‘The Story Tour’ is a ticketed event with ticket prices kept intentionally low. We have further reduced our ticket prices each season to reach more people. Large groups of tickets are given away to those in drug rehabs and to those who can’t afford them but want to come (around 30-40% of total tickets). We are working to bring the event free of charge to Prisons and Penitentiaries (as they loosen restrictions).

We want to go to the places where we are needed the most, even if a location can’t pay us. This fall, there are several locations where we are absorbing the cost of the show, in order to reach people in a certain area.

One of the challenges we face in booking the event is finding a host partner. Many don’t have the space or resources needed, or their schedule is already full with other important projects. With that in mind, we’ve begun scheduling events, sponsored solely by Found & Favored Ministries, in neutral locations. (We will continue to partner with host ministries as those opportunities present themselves). We’re finding that we have a great response and higher attendance in these neutral settings, as those who wouldn’t enter the doors of a church often feel comfortable visiting their local high school. A neutral location also allows many ministries to come together, so people who receive or who are returning to Jesus can get plugged into numerous sources right away. It’s a win for local ministries, for us, and for “banged-up” people. 

In Fall 22, just under half of our events are being held in theaters or high school auditoriums. We always have to rent these facilities however, and this comes with an added cost. The average rental fee is about $2000. We want to go to the places where we are needed the most, even if a location can’t pay us, or we have to pay for a location. Our hope is to increase the number of events we offer. Our goal is 30 shows in the spring and 30 in the fall in the locations where Jesus is needed most.

While we keep our expenses as low as possible, each event still costs us about $8000. This includes thousands of marketing dollars per event. We want everyone to know when we are coming to a city. There are also auditorium rental fees, gas, food, lodging and people costs for our team of 11.. We will recoup some of our costs through ticket and product sales at the events, but because our ticket prices are low, we rarely recover our event costs. 

In addition we would like to record an album in early 2023. The Story Tour features stories of freedom from across the country, with the music of Allan Scott Band as the soundtrack. Without songs about the hope of Jesus, our ministry doesn’t have wheels. Most of the music used in the tour is from an album called “The Story” that we recorded in 2018. We have written a new batch of songs and now have a goal of recording a new album of music that can be used to update the next edition Story Tour events.

We want to continue to be able to bring this tour to places that need it the most, and provide free tickets to those who need them. Would you please consider supporting this project? When you do, you will be the hands and feet of Jesus in the lives of those who may be addicted, hurting or incarcerated. Thank you!

It is our goal to raise $80,000 to help fund our ‘Story Tour’ fall 22 and spring 23 events, as well as record an album of new songs that can be used in the next edition of Story Tour events. All funds will be used in the following ways:

Offsetting Low Ticket Prices / Free Tickets To Those In Need / Penitentiary Events / Equipment Repairs/
Promotions / Travel Expenses / Auditorium Rental Costs / Personnel Costs / New Music

Since Fall of 21 The Story Tour has traveled 2800 miles to 11 cities in 6 states. Beginning Fall of 22, we launch out again traveling another 3100+ miles to 13 additional cities on our mission to see a revival in the lives of the addicted, hurting and struggling sweep the nation.

We have scheduled several dates for Spring 2022! We plan on venturing westward later in 2022 as we see how things develop for the ministry. Penitentiaries are currently not allowing outside organizations to visit or allowing on a very limited basis, but we are working when them now to obtain entrance to their facilities! Our goal is to book 10 Story Tour events in prisons in the near future.  We know that many in the prison system desperately need this type of ministry now more than ever, and we’re excited to see what God does in their lives!
