Best Summer Moments: Something Just Like This

Our family loves FUSION, the rock/pop choir ministry that invites teens into a music community and also shares love and Christ with them. They spend the school year rehearsing rock and pop songs (in their national language, as well as in English), as well as a few Christian songs. They get the chance to not only perform in local schools in the city where their Fusion resides, but once in a blue moon, they are so blessed as to be able to go out of town in order to launch a new Fusion choir!

Next week our local church’s choir is heading to the East! God is doing great things in Kharkiv, a city of at least 1.5 million. Josiah Venture will launch its newest Fusion there very soon, AND I’M GOING!!!

Here is the back story: Over the past few years, one of my top 3 summer moments is related our rock/pop choir ministry, Fusion. But this summer, due to seminary and JV guests, we were able to visit New Life Fusion Camp (our local church) for only about 48 hours, not the 4 days like I’ve done the last few years. However, that didn’t stop Fusion from still making my top 3 this summer. This was it:

The Chainsmokers/Coldplay’s “Something Just Like This” is an incredibly catchy song sung by a couple Fusion soloists who rock our world. Camp this summer was big; the choir was big. God was glorified. I never cease to be amazed by His work through Fusion.

And now, after my soul-searching August/September on a question-asking journey with God, I felt Him telling me to join Fusion for a few weeks and head to Kharkiv with a bus of teenagers. I don’t know what exactly He has in store. I just know I want to share Jesus and support the incredible young people and youth leaders in our midst. This past year of studying adolescent development at Fuller Seminary, my heart has grown exponentially for working with teens. How desperately they need adults (I prefer the term “youth leader”, but the truth is, I am an adult and twice their age…) in their lives who love unconditionally and listen to their hearts. And then, on top of all that, I get to point them to Jesus?

Yes, please. Stay tuned for details on this trip of a lifetime!
