2015 Ignite Conference
Next weekend, November 6-8, our Grounded Student ministry will be taking a group of students to the Ignite Conference in Hutchinson, KS. The conference is an opportunity for like-minded churches to come together and provide their students an opportunity to hear Biblical speakers who will encourage their growth in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Each year, Summit Woods has seen a growth in the number of students and adults that attend, from 15 in 2013 to 35 this year. This event has quickly become a favorite among the students and student leadership team due to the carefully selected speakers each year who not only will relate to and inspire the students, but also will give them a passion for what God's Word says.
This years theme, Live Worthy: From Religion to Relationship, will feature Justin McKitterick as speaker. Justin has served as the Pastor-Teacher of Grace Community Church in Jacksonville since 2011.
Please purpose to pray for our students in the coming days as they prepare for this conference. Pray for the Word of God to inform minds, reveal hearts, and transform souls. Pray for the leaders in their patience, wisdom and grace with the students as they gather together in small groups for opportunities of discipleship and conversation around the Word. Finally, be looking for a follow-up post with pictures and testimonies from our students and leaders upon their return.
