Fire is not easily contained. Sparks become flickers, embers fan to flame. Each flame represents an untold potential that spreads to everything that surrounds it it, and to light countless new fires wherever it goes. In 2010 we celebrate a life changing vision, a world changing movement, and an international family that holds this eternal flame in their heart. We celebrate knowing God, His everlasting faithfulness, goodness, power, and love. We celebrate the priviledge of making Him known to all nations, all tongues, and all peoples. Lighting the torches of the future being entrusted to each of us us. We celebrate 50 years with Youth With A Mission.
God gave Loren Cunningham a vision of waves of young people going across the continents, spreading the love of Jesus Christ and making him known. In 1960, this came to pass as Youth With A Mission. Now, in 2010, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Youth With A Mission.
In 1975 Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade and Loren Cunningham, founder of Youth With a Mission, had lunch together. God simultaneously gave each of them a message to give to the other: "The culture is shaped by seven mind-molders or mountains in society. In Genesis God said, Gen 1:26-28: Then God said,"Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them,"Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth." Man was to represent God on earth and reflect His love and glory on the earth. When man sinned, man was no longer allowed to rule. Satan was allow to roam the earth and have influence over the earth. However, when Jesus came and died for mankind, Luke 19:10 says that Jesus came to reclaim all that was lost in the Garden of Eden, including man's influence on the earth. It did not mean Christians were to rule everyone, but to reflect His glory in all the earth, just as Adam and Eve did in Genesis. This video reflects the original intent of God, to reflect His love through his people, not rule over them.
