Awake

A ministry for young adults ages 20-45.

This generation of christians faces some unique challenges that those before us did not, and AWAKE seeks to prepare us to not only face these challenges, but to stand alongside one another and “fight the good fight”.

Challenges such as:

• Universalism: The belief that all roads lead to God, and that there is no absolute right or wrong
• Individualism: The belief that one should think of himself before all others
• Marginalization: The complete removal of God from schools, the marketplace, places of employment, and government
• Political correctness: Stressing tolerance of all beliefs, ideologies, and lifestyles EXCEPT Christianity

This is the world we’ve inherited and it seems to have happened overnight. This generation must take a stand to protect the church, our beliefs, and to preserve the future for our children. No longer can we sit idly by while our beliefs are attacked and face the possibility of one day being forced to practice our faith underground, in secret.

AWAKE will equip those who wish to join with the weapons necessary to ‘fight the good fight’ based on scripture. In 1 Timothy, Paul writes to Timothy, a young man around 20 years old whom God charged to pastor the church in Ephesus, a city known for its beliefs in universalism, individualism, loose morals, sexual immorality, and denial of God’s truth. Sound familiar? Paul instructs Timothy how to face persecution, remain strong in his faith, and how to reach people with the Gospel. At the time, Paul was in prison and awaiting execution, but in chapter 4 verse 7, he sums it all up for Timothy, “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful.”

In 2 Timothy we learn fighting the good fight means to stand strong, side-by-side, in the face of persecution; to pray for those who mock and persecute us; to forgive those who take away our rights (because their actions are motivated by ignorance), but we must fight with love, patience, and forgiveness; as Christ did. We must become people who respond to hate with love and to persecution with forgiveness.
If your heart is touched by the needs of this generation, you feel a passion for the lost in our country, or you want to have an impact on the future for your children, AWAKE is for you. One day we will all depart this world and my desire is for you to be able to say, as Paul did, “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award me on that day.”
