What is Ignite?

Ignite is a two-day Children's Ministry conference, aimed at children's churches, parents, grandparents, teachers and anyone working with children. This yearly conferences started two years ago as a one-day conference and has now developed into a full two day conference!
Topics or questions that we will explore during Ignite!, are:
1. How to raise up children to be God-Chasers & Nation Shakers
2. How to release children to be packed with the fullness of God’s power and to equip them to cope with the difficulties of normal life.
3. How to equip children to carry & release God’s love, hope and goodness in their communities and in our nation.
4. How the church and schools can connect to assist children to make sense of who they are and how they connect with the world around them.

What will happen during the Ignite?

During this conference there will be PLENARY sessions by Heather Thompson, Esme Schmitt, Lynette Snyman, Bill Bennot and .
There will also be several “how to” workshops that will be presented by children’s pastors, teachers and parents. The aim of these workshops is to provide practical ideas that can be implemented immediately at home, in church or the classroom. The topics of these workshops will soon be available.
Lastly, all conference attendees will have the opportunity to experience Encounter stations (a tool used in children’s ministry to connect children to God’s love, peace and joy) where they will receive personal ministry.
This Conference is also a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and to build connections!
