To be or not to be. That is absolutely not the question. You should be iGosian. This summer. At a Base Camp near you. The real question is which Base Camp or how many Base Camps you can make. We need volunteers, and you should be one. Still not sure? Consider these 5 reasons to be a Base Camp Volunteer this summer.
#5 - Fun to talk iGosian, Okay? - Talking in an accent is always cool. You don’t even have to be good at it. The secret to the iGosian accent is that it is linguistically messy. In the course of one conversation iGosian accents have traces of Arab, Asian, Spanish, and Indian accents all mixed together. You already love to use fake accents. You enjoy faking a strong northern accent like you hear from your friends from Oklahoma or another northern state. British accents are always fun to try, or maybe it is Australian. Who can tell? So come on over to iGosia and make up one that is uniquely yours. Throw in some baffling catch phrases such as, “Don’t be a rude,” and you are ready to go.
#4 - The Old Switcheroo - They annoy you all the time, right? With their skateboard theatrics at the shopping center and the car-frame rattling bass that drowns out your favorite soft rock station at a red light, students are simply a hassle to deal with. And I don’t even want to talk about dealing with groups of them at the mall. Ugh. Now is your chance to intimidate them right back. Of course, these are iGo students and they aren’t necessarily the ones that are messing up your order at Arby’s. But they are still students and they represent their kind. So join us at Base Camp. Part of the job description for our volunteers is to give our students a hard time. And don’t try to tell me that isn’t going to fulfill a fantasy.
#3 - Dress Up Time - When is the last time you got to play dress up without repercussions? Well, that’s too long. iGosians dress up and we dress up well. The best part is you don’t even have to bring your own dress ups. We have spent the last 13 years gathering ridiculous clothing and outfits from across the globe and one or two thrift stores. We even clean them once a year. Bright colors, especially orange, are all the rage these days. iGosian clothes bring the brightness. The only question is what combination will you bring to this year’s iGosian runway?
#2 - No Skills Required - In fact, the lack of skill in your given iGosian assignment is most often a necessity. iGosian Airlines is currently looking for a fresh group of recruits to mishandle and misplace checked bags. They also have positions open for incompetent ticket agents. iGosian Customs and Immigration is in need of agents that typify the surly and uncaring attitude that has become the standard in their industry. Laziness would be value added. Feel the need for a little deception? We have a role for you selling the wrong bus ticket to iGosian. Of course, those who buy that ticket end up with an extremely relaxing tour of iGosia, so it turns out to be a Romans 8:28 kind of endeavor. Join us this summer and let us help you become inept and completely unhelpful to our visitors.
#1 - making Him famous - Yes, of course. The number 1 reason for you to BE iGosian this summer is to make Him famous. iGo Global is training and mobilizing a generation to make Him famous. And we need the most amazing volunteers to make that happen. Every believer has a role to play in the global mission of God. Can’t go this summer? Struggling to find the resources to give to someone who is going? Here is your chance to train and mobilize. We need volunteers at three Base Camps in Texas, one at Falls Creeek, and one way up in Kansas.
