General Assembly 2017
There is no doubt GA 2017 will be one for the history books. Unlike any other General Assembly, this conference faced not just one major challenge, but a number of challenges that could have easily brought any event to a standstill and even a cancellation. A hotel fire at our original venue prior to the event, a last minute change in worship bands, the loss of our communications director to a heart attack, rejection of visas for more than 30 attendees, and a history-making hurricane in our host city just 2 days prior to the arrival of our event team were just a few of the challenges surrounding the international gathering of Youth for Christ staff in Miami this year.
IRMA’S INVITE :
Despite the challenges faced, GA 2017 was a time of joy, celebration, giving, serving, worshiping, learning and sharing that could not have been replaced with anything else. May our time together help us focus on the mission and commitment we make together to “reach young people everywhere, working together with the local church and other like-minded partners to raise up life-long followers of Jesus who are characterized by godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, boldness in evangelism, and commitment to social involvement”!
