WHAT IS IGNITE?
Ignite is a yearly, multi-state Youth Conference for student leaders, volunteers, and youth workers. Yes, Ignite was designed with the whole youth ministry in mind. Bring your, students, your team, or just a couple volunteers. We want the conference to be tailored by you to fit your ministry need.
HOW IS IGNITE DIFFERENT THAN OTHER YOUTH CONFERENCES?
At Ignite, we have like-minded speakers and trainers partnering with like-minded ministries, with the goal to equip and train students, youth workers, and volunteers with Biblical principles. Principles that will help each church or ministry accomplish the goal of reaching people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
In addition, here are some things that make us unique:
- Every year 50% of our speakers and trainers are new to the conference. With changing themes and topics, we attempt to locate Biblical thinkers and speakers who help address that year’s focus and theme.
- We are a youth conference that seeks to help youth workers with all the intangible needs and issues of navigating a weekend with students. We help provide free housing and provide freelunch at each location for all registrants. We also provide free food during our late-night option on Friday night for all students and a free appetizer buffet for all the adult youth workers.
- We have three different training times during the weekend that offer 10+ workshops each time that specifically equip student leaders, volunteers and full time youth workers. So if you bring a group of 10 to the conference, your group technically could get 30 different workshops over the weekend.
