Reaching Everyone, Everyday, Everywhere! is the theme for iGo ’08, the annual conference of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. It will be held July 27-31 at Innisbrook Golf Resort near Tampa, Fla., where the conference participants will be challenged to share their faith with those around them.
It is one of four Grace Brethren conferences scheduled this summer. Driven ’08 will be held June 26-29 in Westerville, Ohio. Two separate Momentum youth conferences will take place. Momentum West is June 23-June 28 at Biola University in La Mirada, Calif., while Momentum East will be July 21-July 27 at Cedarville University in southwestern Ohio.
Mark Cahill is the keynote speaker for iGo ’08. With a passion for evangelism, he speaks to more than 25,000 people each year at churches, retreats, conferences, and camps, equipping and challenging the saved to reach the lost. He is the author of One Heartbeat Away and One Thing You Can’t Do in Heaven.

Driven ’08, the young adult conference that strives to gather a generation to become catalysts for Christ within church and culture, will center on the theme of “Undivided.” For more information or to register, see www.drivenconference.com.
Momentum West will combine training and challenges with two days of hands-on ministry and will be limited to 500 participants. Options may include building homes in Mexico, ministering to the homeless, ministering to Muslims, working with a women’s shelter, or distributing foods to needy people. There will also be ministry opportunities for those who chose to remain closer to campus. Challenging programming will be available Wednesday and Thursday nights with opportunities for testimonies.
Momentum East will include a conference-wide Convoy of Hope outreach on Saturday, July 26, in Dayton, Ohio, allowing students to participate in distributing food, planning children’s games, running a carnival, and more. The outreach event will conclude with each guest entering a prayer tent where they are prayed with and given an opportunity to hear the gospel.
