SICOM, the Student International Conference On Missions, welcomes Engage, the missions arm of Christ In Youth (CIY), into a strategic partnership to broaden students’ hands-on experiences into Kingdom Worker training. SICOM has a 16-year history of bringing missions and students together in a unique hands-on service conference dating back to when it was Windows of the World (2000-2011). Christ In Youth has been a leader in youth ministry since its founding in 1968. CIY serves more than 70,000 students each year with more than 100 events nationwide, designed to amplify Christ’s call on student lives to become Kingdom workers. CIY’s Engage, now under the leadership of Rachel (Oblon) Grindle, seeks to help Kingdom workers engage people by connecting with missional leaders, global Kingdom works and cultural intelligence. Beginning with the 2015 SICOM in Richmond, VA, Engage and SICOM will work together to train students to become Kingdom Workers who engage as we seek to make Jesus famous.
As part of the International Conference On Missions that takes place this October 29 – November 1, 2015 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, the partnership between ICOM and the Virginia Evangelizing Fellowship combined with this new venture with Engage and SICOM have the potential to make the 2015 ICOM/SICOM a pivotal year in missions, in church planting and in local churches.
