We desperately want to stay faithful in these times, but we know we can’t muster up the faith all on our own. IF:2023 matters to us, because for two days we get to gather and remind each other that God is who we need. God is who will provide. We gather for two days of worship, with our Bibles, and we ask God to move. We want you to gather your people in your home, in your local church, and on your college campus as we follow God together!
You might not find yourself in an AA meeting, or struggling with hard drugs and alcohol, but a lot of us have found more “acceptable” ways to cope with stress, pressure, or uncomfortable emotions.

While our culture may find them acceptable, it can mean a slow drift away from holiness and faithfulness. Join Cheryl Luke, as we explore how these little habits and ways of coping actually can keep us from a deeper relationship with Jesus and the way God built us to live.
