After six True ID conferences open to the public have been done here as a give-back of the ministry,
WOW was invited to conduct True ID as a three-day conference event at one of the Christian universities, “We were truly ‘wowed’ by the response of the youth and how transferable the message was!” shares Marty Schutrop, director of WOW Ministries International.
The True ID Conference was presented as a 3 day on- site conference where 1,000 youth gathered for an unprecedented rally to meet the fast up-and-coming need the Church of India is facing (As are other nations abroad).
Casey shares: ”There is a tsunami of culture shift sweeping across the youth (Of India) as they move from a 3rd to a 2nd world nation. Even the most remote village youth have cell phones and access to all western media, and unfortunately, they are taking the worst from it. 45% have smart phones and of Christian youth that do- 65% of one age group view pornography on a regular basis. If the Church does not come in equal force to purpose for them to know their True identity in Christ- their ‘True ID’ and to truly have a Christian WORLD-view of the invitation of their true call; I am afraid we, the body of Christ, will lose them. This is why teaching and training in mass is key for church planting and growth as the youth ARE the future Church abroad.”
Although this was a closed conference on a Christian University Campus for and to Christian youth with preregistration, many brought Hindu friends. Of those, over 170 made a first time decisions to know the love and freedom of life in Christ, denouncing their Hindu Gods. True follow-up: As the youth pastors brought all the youth, each new believer is already ‘in’ a youth group and was sent home with follow-up tools from WOW Min. with the youth pastors directly following up one on one with each student.
