The theme for iLife 2018 was" REFLECT". We spent the weekend going through the book of James to learn practical ways in which God has called us to reflect his Son.
True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.
The aim of iLife is to create deep connections with God and with one another. Students are placed in homes to create an accountability atmosphere with their crew's adult leaders, and other students their age.
The most unique element of this weekend is the partnership of multiple student ministries united under the banner Jesus! God's presence was experienced in the services and on the sandy beaches! Fun and games are a big part of the weekend, but there are also many opportunities for friends to encourage each other to flourish in their faith.
