In today’s Instagram, social media world, real-life friendships have become an endangered species. Do you like your friend, or the image he or she has created for the world? Does your friend like you, or the snarky memes you post? What’s real and what’s—not?
But we can also apply this “real or fake” test to our faith. Does it last longer than Wednesday night youth group or Sunday morning services? Does it go beyond attending a Christian concert or showing up for See You At The Pole? Does it change our words? Our choices? Our futures?
At this year’s iGO Conference, we’ll focus on Seeing the Unseen. As we do this, we’ll hear from some of the realest people you’ve ever met. Each one has real-life stories about God breaking into their lives in supernatural ways.
We’ll hear about how God sends dreams and visions to those in Muslim cultures, dreams and visions that point to the One who reveals himself as the way, the truth, the life. We’ll learn how God has met seemingly impossible needs for those committed to follow Him to the ends of the earth. We’ll discover cultures and people groups we may never have known existed, and we’ll also learn how, in our real-life neighborhood, workplace, school or dorm, we can go beyond just inviting someone to church to becoming a real and radical witness for Christ.
A few years ago, a young Awe Star missionary named B.J. Higgins penned these words in one of his Global Passage journals:
I will not be satisfied.
I will not let my passion be held in a bottle.
I will not let my light be hidden.
I will stand up.
I will let my voice be heard.
I will lead. I will serve. I will fight.
I will tell people about Christ.
I will unsheathe my sword.
It’s time to raise a revolution.
God will give me the strength.
(BJ Higgins, martyr for Christ, 1989-2005)
If you’ve ever longed for a real, radical faith that would move you to raise a revolution—if you’ve ever wondered why some people seem to have a passion for Christ that, deep down, you know you lack, you need to join us for iGO.
Who knows? You just might discover that Seeing the Unseen offers the realest reality of all.
