2014 SGI Conference Overview

Our culture tells us that we must live for the moment, seize the day, live life to the fullest. If you really want to live you have to do this, try that, have this experience, etc. But the Bible gives us a different message. Paul, the first missionary, said that for him, “To live is Christ” and that if spreading the gospel of Christ meant his death, that was okay too because “to die is gain.”

We need to be reminded that real life is life lived for Christ and that death in Christ really is gain. Student Global Impact exists to remind young adults that telling others about Jesus is worth your life (and death).

On January 2-3, 2014, hundreds of young adults will gather in the metro Detroit area for the SGI National Conference under the theme “To Live is Christ. To Die is Gain.” Join us as we focus on the Word through preaching, corporate singing, practical and academic workshops on missions topics, and fellowship with other young adults who love Jesus and the cause of His gospel.

Student Global Impact
is the young adult mobilization department of Missions Mandate, existing to honor God by mobilizing students to discover, develop, and fulfill their role in the Great Commission.
The Cause
We are convinced that we live in an important time period for the advance of the gospel. History has proven that young adults have played a crucial role in the mobilization and realization of a movement towards evangelizing the unreached peoples of the world.
Through the mobilization ministry of SGI we desire to equip and network young adults who will be the catalyst for a revival of a movement once known as the Student Volunteer Movement.
The Conference
SGI hosts the biannual National Conference in the Metro Detroit Area for the purpose of providing solid expositional Bible teaching from pastors and missionaries, scholarly and practical workshops, and ample opportunities for young adults to network.
The most recent conference, the 2012 SGI conference entitled “Not Ashamed of the Gospel” took place January 3-5, 2012. View and download all 2012 Conference media.
The Ministry
SGI seeks to mobilize Christian young adults on Christian college campuses, on state university campuses, and in local churches.
SGI representatives attend college and church missions conferences in an effort to connect students/churches to missions resources and stir the cause for gospel ministry around the world.
