Outreach in Africa by LYNC and ICON
ICON is a unique education program that aims to bring the world together through service and music. The combination of international travel, service learning, leadership development and performing arts offers students an unparalleled experience and a pathway to make a difference in the world, one community at a time. In partnership with the Love Your Neighbor Coalition (LYNC) hospitality committee and San Francisco State University, ICON will visit and perform in South Africa and Zimbabwe (Africa University, United Theological Seminary Zimbabwe etc…) as peaceful ambassadors to strengthen existing partnerships and establish new relationships, in an effort to bridge the gap between progressives and conservatives through music. The hope is that some joint nonpolitical music will bring enough healing to both sides of the debate to have honest discussions about how we can move forward as global connectional church. An offering was taken to fund the cost of the trip at the concert Sunday afternoon at the Rise Up! Conference.
