Event Description

Ignite is a 24-hour retreat for students in grades 7-9 designed to fuel their passion and discipline as Christ-followers. They will come away inspired and equipped to be more effective servant leaders in their churches and schools. 

We encourage you to send students in your ministry who are committed to Christ, teachable, actively involved, potential leaders, and faithful to their commitments.

While each conference has an overall discipleship theme, specific presentations will be on a 3-year rotation, so you can send students for more than one year.
