Our Purpose

We believe that everyone has a role to play in making Jesus’ name known around the world.

Some Go

Goers cross boundaries to proclaim the name of Jesus where it has never been heard or where there are few Christians.

Some Send

Senders leverage their lives to support goers with our prayers, finances, encouragement, and other means.

All are Called

We are all called to give our lives away to make the name of Jesus known around the world. This is the reason God created you, saved you, and called you. You have a part to play in God’s plan for the world.

Here’s a recap from our last IN-Person conference:

our role

We’re not the church.
Since 2013 we have merely been an event that comes along every year or two and talks about three things to 18-25 year olds: 1) the gospel as the only means of salvation, 2) the church as central to the life of discipleship, and 3) the Great Commission as part of every believer’s call to love your neighbor. After our event these freshly challenged young people are pointed back to their local church for guidance and care.

We’re a partner for local churches.
We want to partner with local church leaders (which if you’re reading this, is likely you!). Everything we’ve planned has you in mind, in fact, it has been developed through conversations and requests from folks like you. Our hope is that we can be a useful tool for you and your ministry. If there are ways we can be of more use to you, please reach out and let us know!

We don’t want to make your life easy, but to make your life count.
