InterGen Global Forum 2017

A Family Reunion - Now & In the Age to Come

Contact Us

InterGen Global Forum is an intergenerational gathering of people who love God and global students. It is an invitation to unite followers of Christ from three specific realms:

  • International educators working in high schools, colleges, and universities
  • Staff serving through international student ministry organizations
  • Church leaders and volunteers who care about global students

InterGen will have five workshop tracks with 15 class options. They are:

  • Marketplace Leaders — Living out faith on the job. Wherever God has placed you, He has a strategic role just for you!
  • Apologetics — Responding with wisdom and grace to different views. Some work environments and some people can be challenging. Discover how you can survive and thrive in your witness, and help others do the same!

Southern California is a prime vacation destination. You may want to add some extra days to the schedule listed below for a visit to Disneyland, Knotts Berry Farm, or one of many other fun excursions. (NAFSANs — If you are not attending NAFSA’s pre-conference workshops, you will have a couple days between meetings to relax and see the sights.)

InterGen Global Forum will be held at Hope International University (HIU) which is located just across the street from Cal State University Fullerton in North Orange County, California. The address is 2500 E. Nutwood Avenue, Fullerton, CA 92831. Parking is free.

If you need housing, there are many options. Here are several to consider.

"Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you." Joshua 10:19, 25 NLT

It is our prayer that everyone God is drawing to this conference will have the funds to attend. We praise God for His powerful ability to provide but also recognize that He often meets needs for us through one another. With this in mind, we have done everything possible to keep conference costs low. This weekend is a faith effort for us to plan and possibly a faith challenge for you to attend as well.

Allow plenty of time for travel on Memorial Day weekend in LA!

Ah, yes. InterGen Global Forum will be Memorial Day weekend in Orange County just south of Los Angeles. To those of us who live here, that means traffic. But don’t let this discourage you! With some wise planning the obstacles can be minimized.

"Call to me and I will answer you..." Jeremiah 33:3

Beginning in August 2016, a prayer team has been meeting weekly to seek God’s leading for InterGen Global Forum. Please join us in covering every aspect of this gathering in prayer.

Praise God for His kindness and provision in giving us this unexpected opportunity to come together to encourage one another.

Pray that we may be Spirit-led, God-honoring, Kingdom-building, rooted in love, and overflowing with God’s wisdom in all agendas and decisions. May there be truthful unity in the planning team along with peace, health, godliness, and growing faith in the process.

The co-hosts for InterGen Global Forum are NAFSA Region XII Christian SIG and International Friends Meet.
