The #LastingImpact Challenge 2019

By Lance Shumake · December 5, 2019

I still find myself amazed that it happens. Even though our teaching and our training is all geared for life on mission way beyond the actual mission trip, I get caught off guard when I hear how God really used iGo to do exactly that. And so much more. God has used iGo Global to make a #LastingImpact on hundreds and even thousands of students. Incredible. Is that your story too? Did your time with iGo (even if it was only one summer years ago) leave a lasting impact on your life and your view of the world? If so,…

The Challenge of Christmas

By Lance Shumake · December 29, 2018

It is truly one of my favorite missions quotes of all time. Some guy I don’t know much about named Oswald J. Smith is given credit for it. Apparently guys named Oswald are good for quoting. Here is what he said: “We talk of the Second Coming; half the world has never heard of the first.”  Such a great reminder. Today, just as much as when he first said it. Over 6000 people groups are still unreached. Almost 3 billion people in the world have little to no access to the gospel. We just celebrated Christmas, and I hope you had a great one!…

The Challenge 2018

By Lance Shumake · December 10, 2018

Hopefully by now you have seen the #Dare2Declare project we kicked off this December. If not, please don’t admit it for your pride and our feelings. We have challenged The Tribe, which is well over 4000 strong these days, to help us train and mobilize the next generation by giving $10,000 before the end of 2018. Yes, $10,000 seems like a lot. Which is why we have divided it up. Everyone has a place where they could help us. Check out the chart below: This money will go straight towards the work of iGo in training our teams. It will cover…

iGosian History Month: A Call to Action

By iGo Global Staff · May 8, 2017

You may not know that May is iGosian History Month. Probably because we just decided that in our last staff meeting. You can do that, you know. Just decide to declare a day or a week or a month to remember or honor or celebrate something? So why not iGosia? So join us this month as we celebrate and remember all things iGosia. We plan to fill up the social media landscape with famous iGosians, favorite things about iGosia polls, best cucumber and tomato recipes, and so much more. But the most important thing we have planned for iGosian History Month…

NINETYSIX3: An Unlimited Value

By iGo Global Staff · November 1, 2016

The standard streaming subscription for Netflix costs $9.99 per month and there are over 47 million Netflix subscribers in the USofA alone. What a phenomenon. I get it. I mean, there are always Stranger Things you could be spending your money on, right? Netflix is a good investment when you consider all the ways you can use it. You can binge watch it with Friends, or you can get Lost in a show all alone. Streaming Netflix on your smart phone means you can take your favorite shows outdoors. You could watch a comedy on benches in city Parks, And…

An iGo M Partner Gives Thanks

By iGo Global Staff · November 23, 2015

We are kicking off a week of thankfulness by thinking about the amazing M partners that we get to serve alongside at iGo. These men and women and their families are simply the best. The. Best. And we couldn’t be more thankful for their partnership and willingness to allow students to share in their work. We could go on and on, and at some point we probably should. But every now and then, our M’s turn those tables on us and share thoughts with us about iGo from their perspective. We received this email of thanks last week and thought…

Ninety-six3: The Tribe Gives Back

By iGo Global Staff · October 27, 2015

“One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate. They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness. They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.” –Psalm 145:4-7  The passage above shows a common theme throughout Scripture. One generation tells the next generation about God. Generation after generation passes the amazing story of God to the next generation to come. It is a beautiful…

iGo Training: Don’t just take it from us

By iGo Global Staff · June 23, 2015

So you have most likely seen or heard us make a big deal about our training. That isn’t just a marketing technique. In fact, we are not totally sure it even is a marketing technique. We make a big deal about our training b/c we want to train you for missions. And when I say you I mean you, your youth group, your college group, your church, etc. And when I say for missions I mean for a cross-cultural mission experience, but even bigger than that, I mean for a life on mission. Jesus said that we will BE his…
