There are a lot of voices in our world telling us who we should be, what we should love, and what makes up our identity. We like to say things like “I’m a vegan,” “he’s so hipster,” “she’s transgender,” or even things like “I’m a pastor,” or “I’m a student.” If we are not careful, these descriptions of diet, dress, sexuality, and vocational choices can make their way into our hearts and we can start believing that these are the things that make us who we truly are.
This year at the GO Conference we’re going to address the question of identity, answering some of the deepest aches of our soul: Who am I? What am I here for? What am I capable of? Who defines me? The main idea we hope to share during this weekend is that we cannot know ourselves until we know who God is as Trinity, Creator, Savior, and Lord. As we look to God, our own identity becomes clearer in light of his grace: we are His. We hope you will join us on this journey at the 2019 GO Conference.
