InterGen Global Forum is an intergenerational gathering of people who love God and global students, June 15-17, 2017 at Hope International University in Fullerton, California. It is an invitation to:

  • International educators and administrators
  • Marketplace believers
  • Paid and volunteer staff of international student ministry organizations
  • Church leaders
  • American friends
  • Ministry teams
  • Teenagers to grandparents
  • Anyone with a heart for the world!

Often we function separately, but at this forum we will come together to get better acquainted. We hope you will join us for this weekend of vision, networking, equipping, and spiritual renewal!

Nourish your soul with wonderful meals as we “Grow Together at God’s Table”

Plenary #1 “Feasting on God’s Word: Truth for all generations”

Plenary #2 “A Meal of Bread & Wine: The cost of serving”

Plenary #3 “Provision of Fish & Loaves: Jesus offers hospitality”

InterGen Global Forum will conclude with a Sunday worship service and lunch on the beach. Our focus during this final family gathering will be “Wedding Supper of the Lamb: A shared hope and future.”

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

  • Marketplace LeadersLiving out faith on the job. Wherever God has placed you, He has a strategic role just for you!
  • ApologeticsResponding with wisdom and grace to different views. Some people and work environments 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.

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.

  • Hope International University Dorms. You will be able to sign up for this on the registration form.
  • Local hotels. Numerous hotels and motels are available in North Orange County depending on your needs and budget.
  • Private homes. If money is tight, we have a limited number of private homes available where you can stay for free. Please contact us if this would help you to attend.
"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.

AIR TRANSPORTATION: If you are flying, we recommend the Orange County (SNA) or Los Angeles (LAX) airports. We advise that your flight arrive no later than 2:00pm on Friday, June 15. Hopefully that will allow plenty of time to check into your housing, take a short nap, and have dinner before InterGen begins at 6:00.

GROUND TRANSPORTATION: If you are traveling by air, we will do our best to provide airport pickup and return for you. The registration form has a place for you to indicate your need for a ride. Please request your ride no later than May 15.

If you are NOT traveling by air, and will have a car with you, we would love your help in providing the transportation that will be needed by others. Let us know by completing a ‘Volunteer’ form. (Form is available on this website under the section ‘Volunteer to help.’)

PARKING: There is no charge for parking at Hope International University.

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

Beginning in August 2017, 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 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.
