IGNITE!  What is it?

Matthew 5:14-16 14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Ignite is a two-part program for young people ages 14-16 seeking to deepen their faith in Jesus and grow in leadership.  The program is designed to use the camp setting to create experiences and opportunity for learning, service, and faith development.

Our hope is to encourage Ignite program participants to develop skills and leadership abilities to become more effective leaders in their corps (churches) and as future camp staff members.

To be considered for the Ignite program, participants should understand the following:

As a training and discipleship program, all program participants will be supervised by the Ignite program leader.  The Ignite program leader will provide accountability, support, guidance, as well as daily schedules, mentor time, and Bible studies to encourage continued growth throughout the summer.  Ignite is a Bible based discipleship program following the life, teachings and example of Jesus Christ.

Just as Jesus was called the “Light of the World” so we are called to be lights that shine in this world.  Come learn how your light can shine brighter and “glorify your Father in heaven”.  At least 14?  Apply now!
