Each Year at a Glimpse

three years of purpose

Year 1: Transformation

The question that is resounding today in ministry is not, “Are you willing to let God use you?”. Rather the question is, “Are you willing to let God mold you so that he can use you?”. When coming in for your first year, you will be inundated by the knowledge of God and the Love of Jesus, the Son of God.


Year 2: INformation

The second year is considered the year of information. It is here where you will continue your leadership journey. You will be prepared mentally, intellectually, and academically. The knowledge obtained during the second year will prove to be indispensable for longevity in leadership and will establish some paradigms that will lead you to become a better leader for today.


Year 3: application

During the third year of Ignite you will be submerged into a hands-on ministry approach, while still learning timeless lessons such as conflict resolution, counseling, communication in ministry, budgeting and team building.
