For the past two or so years I’ve been aware of the annual Unified Underground conference up in Maryland but I’ve never attended one. Early on as Myra and I have been walking down the path of church planting with Anchor Mission USA we decided that we would be attending this years conference.
One of the two reasons for the fundraiser we’re currently running is to make this trip a reality. At this stage we’ve raised the funds to cover the conference cost, hotel, and gas to the event. The next part of the fundraising goal to be met is our trip to Tennessee this November which I’ll share more about later.
Myra & I are truly excited to be able to make this conference. For those wondering what it’s all about here’s a little snippet from their site:
UNIFIED UNDERGROUND is a three-day conference to foster spiritual renewal in the lives of all who attend. Unlike most Christian conferences, UNIFIED UNDERGROUND is intended to cater to the specific needs of outcasts who exist in America and around the world. These people groups are called underground subcultures, and include Punk, Metal, Hardcore, Hip-Hop, Goth, Fringe, Skater, Grunge and Hippies, to name just a few.
These cultures are often at odds, but through Christ we are all called to unity. UNIFIED UNDERGROUND is an annual conference to focus on Christ and lay down all that hinders us from achieving unity in the Body of Christ. Culture is not to be feared; it is a tool that can be used to reach the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we must learn to use it to do so. From time to time, all of those who minister to these subcultures become weary. If you are a Christian in the underground community, you are not alone… and this conference is a chance to renew your spirit. UNIFIED UNDERGROUND is also a time to allow “iron to sharpen iron” (Proverbs 27:17)—to not only be restored, but also to grow.
UNIFIED UNDERGROUND features underground pastors and ministers from all over the country, discussing topics that will awaken the Church and cleanse the soul. Whether you are a Christian in a subculture or part of the mainstream culture, you will experience God in a fresh and stimulating way that will take your blinders off. Along with amazing teaching, we pull together some of the foremost Spirit-filled underground bands and praise-and-worship musicians to perform throughout the weekend.
Our fundraising goal of $460 covers both the Maryland and Tennessee trip. If you would like to contribute you may be so by using the direct link (https://www.wepay.com/donations/road-to-the-future) or the button below.
