2020 A Summer of Fires
2020 has been, and likely will continue to be, one of the gnarliest years in recent times. I don't need to reference any particulars - we're all aware - the list of broken things is rather long.
In the midst of it all, there are a few things we are growing more certain about than ever...
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever." Hebrews 13:8
"Do not be anxious about anything,... the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus." Phil 4:6-7
While literal fires rage - via protests and now west coast forests - we are seeing the consuming fire of Jesus Christ penetrate the lives of young people.
The youth we are serving are hungry for something real. Their lives are surrounded by fake, shallow, substitute realities.
Jesus is meeting them. Every time with gather, God moves.
The Lord has given us the brand and culture we are calling Invitation Youth. Jesus has extended the loving invitation for everyone to receive the fullness of the Father's Kingdom ( see the Luke 18 parable of the masters' feast).
The Invitation is extended to all. The question is, will we say "yes"!
Over the past several weeks we have experienced...
salvations | physical healings | water baptisms infilling of the holy spirit | radical worship demons cast out | callings received | gifts imparted repentance | confessions | identity revelations youth ministering to youth | joy of the Lord | and more
We've been meeting in an epic open barn.
Jesus has won the victory. Now is the hour for our faith to settle completely into him and him alone. This is our heart cry for our family, the youth we serve, and the body of Christ around the globe.
