One thing God does not have enough of....
He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in." - Jesus (Matthew 9:37)
The one thing God does not have enough of is... Laborers (People who will work for Him)
How sad is it that there are people searching for the answer - their hearts are ready to surrender to God - but NO ONE is there to show them the way and the truth (to harvest them).
Matthew 9:36 When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. 37 He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. 38 As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain!”
How to be a laborer
See people with the eyes of Christ
"1 Samuel 16 - I don’t look at the outer like man does, I look at the heart."
Stop looking at peoples appearance and outside, ask God what their eternity looks like.
Realize that people are ready!
People are searching - their "badness" is a search for goodness!
Jesus said they are ready, no matter how you see it... try it!
We must stop damning people's eternity because of our perception of them.
There is NO ONE else coming! We are the laborers that have been called - without you, who?
Pray - Beseech, to beg, plead with the owner of the harvest to release more laborers!
Will you answer the call?
Romans 1:16 For I am not the least bit embarrassed about the gospel. I won’t shy away from it, because it is God’s power to save every person who believes: first the Jew, and then the non-Jew.
TAKE THE RISK
Over 80% of people who come to church do so because a friend or family member invites them
To the desperate world, take the risk!

Uproar exists to accomplish three main things
1. Bring the message of salvation
2. Bring the truth of freedom and deliverance
3. Empower this generation to bring the message to others.
Acts 17:6...“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too.”
The Uproar is being held for Youth and Young Adults (12- 30)
Uproar is an annual FREE youth and young adult conference held in Elmira, NY. Every year 1000s of people from the North East gather to be encouraged to go home and be the Uproar in their schools and churches. We have seen God move in many powerful ways and have begun to see a change in this next generation. God has just started moving and Uproar is a catalyst to see this happen.
