IGNITE is a 21-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 live out their faith daily! We encourage you to send students in your ministry who are committed to Christ and teachable. While every IGNITE conference has an overall discipleship theme, specific presentations are on a 3-year rotation, so you can send students for more than one year.
Greg Speck's humorous sketches and true-to-life illustrations captivate audiences of all ages. He has a deep understanding of the problems facing today's teens and identifies easily with youth, capturing their imaginations and hearts while helping them understand God's Word. Greg is a frequent guest speaker for Bethel University and author of two books: Sex, It's Worth Waiting For and Living for Jesus When the Party's Over. Check out Greg's website.
