Thrive: ignite 2017

What is ignite?

This is a “can’t miss” week that repeatedly serves as one of the most fun and meaningful experiences for students on their journey to live everyday life with Jesus. Ignite is a chance for you to connect with God like never before!


Why Thrive?

It’s hard to be a teenager in today's world.  Everyone has expectations that can be difficult to meet.  Sometimes we can view God as having expectations of us and find it easy to ignore the things of God and avoid disappointing Him.  However, did you know that God actually wants to be active in your life?  He does the work, living in and through you if you allow Him.  God did not create you to just get by in this world.  God does not call you to measure up to Him.  God invites you to let Him live through you, and by doing that you will THRIVE.  

What can I expect at ignite?

Life-changing messages brought to you by Brian Burgess!  
Brian is uniquely gifted to explain the Gospel in a powerful and yet practical way. His warm personality and genuine zeal quickly connects with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. He enjoys speaking at churches, summer camps, and colleges, about discipleship, overcoming adversity, and boldly living out the Gospel.”

Rockin’ worship from the one and only Jonathan Nance!
Jon is the Associate Campus Pastor at Prairie Lakes Church in Grinnell, Iowa, where he helps lead and shepherd the campus of a multi-site church. Jon leads the Worship and Production Ministry and staff, and has been leading worship since he was a High School student. He is passionate about seeing people take real, concrete steps in their walks with Jesus. Fun fact: Rob was Jon’s Youth Pastor, and his best stories involve crazy things Jon did as a teenager!

More fun than you can imagine!
