This year GLOW took place in the North-East of India at Imphal. It was a conference that was unprecedented and the first of its kind in Manipur.
GLOW, Alpha India’s annual Youth and Student Conference aims to inspire and encourage the next generation youth leaders to live out invitational lifestyles using Alpha.
This year the conference was held from 9th – 10th May 2019 at the MBC Community Church and saw more than 150 young leaders from over 22 churches in Imphal.
During this two day event, we had powerful worship, exciting games and a whole lot of laughter. There was a host of sessions conducted for the youth to inspire fresh vision and hope for the future and empower and equip them to walk out the call of God on their life. The delegates were thrilled by the screening of the first episode of Alpha Youth Film Series and loved all the practical tools provided in how to Run Alpha effectively for your church. There were several panel discussion which was super engaging and insightful for all present.
One of the key highlights of the conference was one where each of the delegates were asked to write the names of their friends and family whom they want to be prayed for on a piece of triangle envelope tied to a balloon. The balloons was passed around at random and whoever got a balloon would pray for the names written on it and not let the balloons fall on the ground.
It was powerful moment of intercession and experiencing freedom together.
Here is what one delegate had to say :-
"The energetic and soulful songs of the worship team and the representation of the balloons with the names of our dear ones, whom we want to bring to Jesus, did leave me a little emotional. The delegates will surely go back and share their experiences to their friends and continue to bring more to know Jesus."
Glow Imphal was full of light and shade, depth and wonder. We are eternally grateful. So thankful for our team and amazing volunteers for all they did to make this Conference so special for all.
The message of Evangelism is erupting in the hearts of a generation. More than ever, we need a generation of men and women who have divine insight on how to effectively bring the gospel of truth to a world and humanity who desperately needs Jesus.
We pray that through Glow, the seed that has been planted in the youth of Imphal will continue to grow and ignite hearts to bring the gospel far and wide for the glory of Jesus.
So excited to share that now we move to the south and GLOW Chennai is taking place on 27th & 28th September. Let’s GLOW.
