Well, our camp season has wound to a close, but we have one final group of reflections from our iGovern staffers. So without further adieu.
Jeremiah LorrigiGovern Chief of Staff
Life is life. There is good and bad. There is easy and hard. Most of the time you take what comes and make the best of it (if you are an optimist) or just bear it (if you are a pessimist), but regardless, life happens and you just live it.
But every so often opportunities arise that allow you to just jump in with both feet. One of those times in my life is iGovern. I love iGovern because as I watch the week the phrase “God is on the move!” comes to mind. I see a generation of young people who are excited to see what God is doing and are willing to join His work.
When I look around, I can’t help but imagining 34 years from now when that kid is in the Senate needing help with an issue and I tell him to talk with the cadre sitting around the legislative table because they are all now leaders in Congress and one of them is the chair of a powerful committee. As the Senator walks away I turn back to the person I was talking to originally about his plan to flip the Senate and recruit a mutual friend to be the next President of the United States. The problem is that a mutual friend of ours is using all her influence to get him appointed as Ambassador at Large to deal with the Middle East Peace process.
This all makes me smile because although each of them is different, they all started in Generation Joshua’s iGovern program. I don’t know if that is what is going to happen, but it makes me smile. God is not done with this generation and it is exciting to think of what He has for them to do!

iGovern East 2013 was one of the most amazing GenJ camps that I’ve ever been a part of. We had an incredible group of students and a dedicated team of leaders. One of my absolute favorite parts of camp is getting to hear the stories of how God moves and works in different hearts and minds throughout the week. One of the things that the Lord brought us to again and again was the concept that He is strong in our weakness, and that He loves to take broken, sinful people and turn them into beautiful, living testimonies of Redemption. God truly blessed this camp, and I was honored to spend a week with our incredible staff and these amazing students.
