The Hometown Fleet

By Lance Shumake · June 25, 2020

In the year of the llama, you stay home with your mama. Yes, all of our iGo trips this summer were grounded. And just like everyone else, we figured out a way to pivot. Hometown 2020: Your town, His Mission was born. The mission didn’t get cancelled. God’s ancient work is always on schedule, and always around us. Wherever we find ourselves at the moment. Churches are joining us for Hometown 2020, and the list keeps growing. And most of our churches would love to have some iGo student leaders. It’s time for the Hometown 2020 Fleet to assemble. Fleet…

Hometown 2020

By Lance Shumake · May 28, 2020

Sometimes the iGosian mascots seem to be chosen with a sense of destiny. Tokyo put a penguin logo on their subway cards in the year of the penguin. The JSI team from the year of the goat (2007) still claims to be the greatest of all time. And those sloth shirts from 2017 moved way too slowly out of our warehouse. This year’s mascot, however, may have topped them all. In the year of the llama…you stay home with your mama. So pretty much everything has been cancelled, and we all may end up stuck in our hometown all summer.…

The Year of the Llama

By Lance Shumake · May 18, 2020

I guess the iGosian year of the llama means you stay home with your mama. We waited. We prayed. We waited some more. And we hoped against hope that things would clear up in time for our summer trips to go as planned. Unfortunately, things have not gone the way we had hoped.  We have made the decision to postpone all of our Summer 2020 iGo teams until 2021.  The list of reasons behind this decision has continued to grow, and the safety of our teams has always been a top priority for us at iGo. We believe this is…

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…
