This year, at IF:2022 we are going to remind you that you don’t have to be afraid of the darkness because God has always been bigger than it!

He is bigger than the lies we hear, bigger than the walls that divide us, and bigger than the shadows that try to overcome us.

Let’s remind each other of this hope and then give it away to everyone we know! Do not miss the chance to join us at IF:2022 and sign up to join us today at https://watch.if2022.com/register/join-group?groupid=19752
