Not only are these issues we read about online or hear discussed on our favorite podcast, but we come up against them daily at school, at work and pretty much, well, everywhere. But there’s another place where you can encounter them: iGO, Awe Star’s annual missions conference.
You see, the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) is also the great connector. Notice how it addresses each of these in multiple ways:
“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me” (theology).
“Go therefore” (identity).
“And make disciples” (relationships).
“Of all nations” (racism, social justice, relationships).
“Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (theology, racism, relationships).
“Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (theology, social justice, racism, gender issues, identity, relationships).
“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (theology, identity).
So yes, iGO 2019 focuses on missions. And no, it doesn’t. Our theme of “seeing the unseen” opens the door for truth yet to be mined from sources both new and familiar.
