We partner with youth pastors in ministry through student conferences and outreach events-encouraging, motivating, and empowering youth in their walk with Christ.

Student Discipleship Conferences

We offer a weekend discipleship conference for middle school students:

  • Ignite is a 24-hour retreat for students in grades 6-9. They come away inspired and equipped to be more effective servant leaders in their churches and schools.

The conference features Greg Speck, an exceptional communicator whose humorous sketches and true-to-life illustrations captivate audiences of all ages.
