Dear friends of UnDocumented.tv,
We’re writing to share some exciting news with you! Last October (2011), UnDocumented.tv helped to support a conference at Cedarville University in Ohio called G92. The conference took its name from the ninety-two references to the ger—the immigrant, in Hebrew—in the Old Testament. Its subtitle, “Equipping the Next Generation for an Effective, Biblical Response to Immigration,” fit closely with UnDocumented.tv’s vision to “inspire and mobilize young evangelical Christians towards championing the needs of immigrants.” More than 1,000 people attended, representing about twenty different colleges. I left in amazement at what God was clearly doing.
The G92 movement has since grown beyond that first conference to a second conference at Samford University in Alabama, with several more conferences now in the works and student groups forming on Christian college campuses and through Christian ministries at other campuses. As G92 grows, though, it will clearly need an online presence to provide resources, up-to-date information, and online registration for conferences.
Meanwhile, UnDocumented.tv has continued to grow as well: as we celebrated our first anniversary in January, our site had been visited by more than 25,000 unique visitors. A NEW DREAM, our signature film, has been viewed thousands of times (both online and screened at churches, on campuses, and at events like G92), won multiple awards, and was even referenced by the President of the United States in a speech. As a primarily online movement, though, UnDocumented.tv has lacked a robust on-the-ground presence.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that UnDocumented.tv is being integrated into G92.org as the online presence of the G92 movement. As of today, all the content that has been part of UnDocumented.tv—videos, experiences, answers to basic questions, and our popular blog—are part of G92.org. We’ll also soon have information up on the site about upcoming conferences, including registration.
Finally, we’re also excited to introduce you to Daniel Watts, the new G92 coordinator. Working as a staff member of World Relief, Daniel will be focused on coordinating upcoming G92 events as well as mobilizing student groups on college campuses. He’ll also be contributing to G92.org, helping to develop additional online resources for mobilizing campuses and contributing occasional blog posts.
We’d ask that you join us in thanking God for his faithfulness to UnDocumented.tv and ask that he continue to guide us as we take this important step in integrating with G92.
for Jesse Oxford, Seth Vaughan, and the rest of the UnDocumented.tv/G92.org team
