WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
 

"What I love about Illuminate is that it has taught me to not be afraid to share the gospel and to be a pioneer. Because we might not be here tomorrow to share it and we can change so many lives by just having a loving heart towards people. I was reminded that the Gospel is way too good not to give away, and if we don’t then who will?"

"Illuminate Nations is changing the world right now literally as we speak. They risk their lives going to these different countries to help spread the gospel to as many people as they can, and have seen so many lives transformed. They are such a loving group of people committed to reaching the lost and just saying yes to going to the unreached nations!"
   — Illuminate Nations Intern Fall 2016
 
"I'd been on mission trips before, but the Exposure Trip with Illuminate Nations placed a new fire and a new desire in me. It brought forth a new love for people and a new love for the Lord like I had never known. I left that mission field knowing that God wasn’t done with me, in fact it was only the beginning. The Illuminate Nations team is a team filled with leaders who are ALL led by God; every action and every plan was covered by the glory of God. I had learned what it meant to truly be led and what it meant to truly allow God to lead. This organization is one whose sole purpose is to bring glory and honor to God’s name. "

"Anyone who gets the chance to be a part of such a movement will forever be blessed. This is truly an organization that hears the word of God and follows Him, obediently and whole-heartedly. An organization led by those with such great faith. It is without hesitation to say that Illuminate Nations is filled with World-Changers."

"Illuminate Nations is a non-profit that awakens people to look past themselves and see God’s heart for the unreached. It inspires people to not only live missionally in their local neighborhoods, but to do so while simultaneously serving others across the globe. This organization is a testament to the heart of Jesus when he expresses his purposes in Matthew 28:18-20."

"The passion that I saw and felt among the Illuminate Nations team is contagious! Stepping into Illuminate Nations, I could instantly feel that I stepped into a radical group of world-changers who were committed to sharing an authentic gospel with each encounter they had. In each of the events that I have attended, I have seen dozens of people receive passion and vision from the Lord and be set free to pursue what He is calling them to. There is an atmosphere of liberation at Illuminate Nations events that has been so powerful in catalyzing people from multiple generations to become influential for the Kingdom of Christ."

"Illuminate Nations is committed to serving with integrity, and to affirming the worth and adding value to the local people of each place they go. The business model of this non-profit, the quality of their products, and the heart behind what they do is highly impressive. I would whole-heartedly recommend this organization to others!"

"When I  think of Illuminate Nations I  think.. Community, strategy, the kind of people who will be worn out when they get to the gates of heaven because of their ministry on earth..I heard about Illuminate Nations in 2016, and I  knew immediately that the Lord had his hand all over their work!! The community they have created around them both here and in the nations speaks to the power of God over their ministry. They are incredibly resourceful and strategic in the way that they make the gospel known to those who have yet to hear the name of Jesus. I’m so grateful that when my husband and I contribute to the work Illuminate Nations is embarking on, we are making a difference in the kingdom and also to the real needs of refugees and those needing Jesus right now."

"What I love about Illuminate Nations is that at the core of their work is the conviction that the church in Acts is the same church we are a part of today, and that God is still calling His people to go to the nations to make His name known. I love how the leaders live this calling out through their presence in the countries they are working in and in their everyday lives here in the States. I also love how the organization isn't focused on making it's own name famous but rather using its engagement to make God's name famous."

"Illuminate Nations is an incredible organization making a tangible difference for Christ throughout the ends of the earth. I am confident that through the pioneering vision of Illuminate Nations many lives will be impacted for the kingdom of God."

"One of the biggest things that has made this organization stand out to me is they always leave their posts and content with, “Join us?” or “Who will go?” Those words sparked a fire in my heart at the dire necessity to go out and proclaim the gospel with fire and joy. Not only that, but it gave me peace that the ministry + nonprofit is one who truly understands the command of sharing the gospel and are calling people to it. They are not in it to make money or be some entertainers; they are genuine and faithful laid down lovers for the name of Jesus."

"I spent a semester and a half with Illuminate Nations doing video work. At the time there was a group of us as interns. My experience was a sweet time. I had the privilege helping put together a highlight video of an event called Worship in the Woods. Besides video work, I got to witness people's passion for the nations. The team is on fire for God and sharing the Good News. The passion for God's people is powerful and encouraged me to be more passionate for the gospel. I admire the hard work that Illuminate Nations does and am excited for what God's going to do through their faithful obedience".

"My experience through Illuminate Nations is something I really can’t put into words. Plain and simple: All that I am is completely dependent on God. The Father has moved in so many impactful ways through Illuminate Nations that will forever change me for the rest of my life."

"I had never gone on a mission trip before so I had no idea how this process worked. Illuminate Nations helped me connect with a wonderful team of people that guided me through this process. They made all the details, smallest to biggest, really simple for me so that I would never have to feel like I am on my own in this process. Every conversation I have ever had with Illuminate Nations made me feel confident and safe that they know what they are doing. Also, they really understand freedom in Christ and the joy of the gospel which is something that grew me in deep ways that I will carry through the rest of my life."

"Illuminate Nations stands out as an organization who is passionate about the Lord's name being known in the most unreached corners of the earth. They are unique because they do this through many different and creative avenues, such as: training people from the western world to reach the nations, partnering with nationals in closed countries to reach their own people, and creative business strategies partnering with nationals. I think the Lord will/is using these avenues in mighty ways!"

  — Illuminate Nations advocate Spring 2018

 

"Illuminate Nations stands out as more than just a missional, international-minded organization; it is pursuing the heartbeat of God in every step of direction and action as it seeks to make Christ known in the nations. It is founded on prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit, and there are already many testimonies of what has come of this obedience to God's Word and Jesus' call. It is also led by young adults who have walked the streets of Nepal and journeyed to the Middle East and have an understanding of the culture and a passion for these countries that gives a special depth and conviction to their work."

— Illuminate Nations Disciple Fall 2018

 

"I would recommend this organization to those who are passionate about investing in the nations, for the sake of Jesus, through creative and flexible avenues with a community of like-minded and surrendered followers of Christ."
