As I write, FLY 2015 is starting to wind down. I tuned in to watch the live stream of the first night and have been following the posts of pictures and comments made by those attending. Two thousand people are gathered and are learning about their identity in Christ. The theme, “Identity” comes from Ephesians 1. Check out flyconvention.org if you want to learn more. Why do I miss FLY?
In reflecting on this question, I believe it has to do with weightiness of the truth of God’s Word and the reception of it by young people. I’ve been one of those youth who heard the powerful Word of God and was shaken to the core while at a FLY Convention. I felt the call to attend AFLBS at another FLY. At each FLY, I was more convinced that I wanted to use my life to serve in ministry. In addition, I’ve personally witnessed and heard many testimonies of how God grabbed hold of individuals while at a FLY Convention. I can’t get enough of seeing that happen. While many other camps and conventions are also near and dear to my heart, FLY has been my favorite.
Who is going with me to FLY 2017?
