“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” (Ephesians 5:14)
Since 2013, Awake is a youth conference organized by an association of like-minded churches, under the banner of Grace to India. The purpose of this conference is to challenge young adults to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ and his purposes with passion, so that local churches are strengthened by our living faith. Our desire is to encourage young adults to be true disciples of Jesus, and to be active members of their own local churches so that the nation is reached with the Gospel.
The pressures of sin, the world and the devil press against us now as ever in our generation. Scripture warns us of the perils of giving into doubt and the deceitfulness of sin. Jesus Christ has come to bring us fullness of life, to save and to empower all who believe in him. So, with Paul, we cry “Awake!”. We take young people seriously – we don’t have to entertain young believers to keep their attention. We know that by the grace of Jesus, passionately committed young adults have transformed and will transform history for the cause of Christ: by the scriptures, through the local church, for the glory of God.
Awake! Believe in Jesus and be forgiven!
Awake! Hate sin and pursue righteousness!
Awake! Choose the church rather than the world!
Awake! Abandon your life for Jesus!
Come, join us this year for Jesus’ name sake.
