Our annual missions emphasis at FBC this winter is iMissions: The idea is simple – use technology to “win as many as possible.” (I Corinthians 9:19–23) We started last weekend.
THIS weekend, we are honored to host Steve Saint, the founder of “i-tec.” i-tec is the INDIGENOUS PEOPLE’S TECHNOLOGY & EDUCATION CENTER. Most people probably recognize Steve’s name for his connection to the movie, End of the Spear, and the powerful story of Steve’s dad, Nate. Nate Saint was one of five missionaries martyred in Ecuador in 1956 while trying to reach the Waodani people.
Steve and his family returned to the Waodani tribe in 1994 and lived among them, teaching and training them to become self-sufficient. Among his more incredible accomplishments is the invention of a flying car, called “The Maverick.” (Featured on CNN and several other news outlets.)
You can read more about i-tec here – ITEC - Indigenous People's Technology and Education Center.
If you’re around this weekend, join us at one of the services: Sat. PM 6:00, Sunday AM – 8:45 and 10:45. Steve is also speaking at a Friday night event, but registration is closed due to high demand.
We are blessed to have Steve with us for this weekend and are looking forward to seeing how God will use his passion for technology during our second iMissions weekend. Bottom line - we want to use whatever technology we can to “win as many as possible.”
