Youth Ignite! 2016

Are you set for Youth Ignite 2016?

There will be three opportunities for your group to attend Youth Ignite in 2016.

Locations range from Camp Istrouma to Ruston to Lafayette. 

Hundreds of youth will gather for a wide array of events, all of which plan to emphasize fellowship, spiritual development and having fun in an outdoor setting.

Over the years, we've heard countless stories of how youth have thrived in the Ignite setting, including Sara Barr, one of last year's youth volunteers who shared this experience: 

When we were about to get into our small groups, I started getting really nervous but as we went to our first station I became more confident. I was able to connect with my group and we had an amazing time. It was really cool being able to help people who were really shy break out of their shells and have a great time. It was awesome seeing what we had put down on paper in the meeting come to life, and seeing youth enjoying the activities.

Our theme for 2016 is Renew and it is based on Mark 12:30, "And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."
