We're really excited about where we're going this year for Ignite. We've got some great sessions and breakouts planned this year. And we're confident that they'll challenge and stretch your heart and the way that you think as a leader.
The DNA of a Leader: during our sessions we'll be exporing the key areas that make up a leader. The heart, head, hands, heel, and home of the leader. We believe these core areas will either spring board a leader to Kingdom impact or ground a leader and those who follow from experiencing the impact that God desires.
The Leader's Heart: led by Chris Spradlin, Lead Pastor @ Euzoa Bible Church in Steamboat Springs, CO
The Leader's Head: led by Jay Risner, Teaching Pastor @ Faith Bible Church in Edmond, OK
The Leader's (achilles) Heel: led by Lee Coate, Creative Arts Pastor @ The Crossing Church in Las Vegas, NV
The Leader's Hands: led by Mike Hickerson, High School Pastor @ Heartland Community Church in Rockford, IL
The Leader's Home: led by Casey Cariker, Teaching Pastor @ Rejoice Church in Owasso, OK
We're also very excited about one of the new pieces of our format. In the past we've randomly placed people in groups for conversation and community, but this year each participant will get to choose a breakout that they are interested in and would like to dialogue about. These breakouts for the weekend are called Ignition Points.
Missional Communities: transforming broken areas thru grace, renewal, and an active presence--led by Jake Phelps
The Arts and the Local Church: empowering and releasing the poets, philosophers, and prophets to transform culture--led by T.D. Oakes, Worship Pastor @ Heartland Community Church in Rockford, IL
New and Improved: creating, leading, and launching innovative ideas, new ministries, and Kingdom projects--led by Scott Cornelius, Campus Pastor @ Lifechurch.tv in Yukon, OK
Shared Leadership: learning to lead leveraging conversation, collaboration, and a Christ-centered cause--led by Jeff Henson, Family Ministries Pastor @ The Crossing Church in Las Vegas, NV
Tipping Points: navigating thru strategic decisions that affect the health, direction, and impact of ministries and churches--led by Kent Sparks, Lead Pastor for Ministries @ CrossTimbers Community Church in Argyle, TX
Also, we're super stoked about having a weekend pastor available for all who attend Ignite. Kent Sparks, Lead Pastor for Ministries at CrossTimbers Community Church in Argyle, TX, will be leading this out. Our goal is to be able to provide someone with wisdom and ministry experience for the entire weekend that you can share with, ask questions too, and download situations and potential next steps with. We'll be unpacking this opportunity more fully as the time draws near.
