Every Tuesday night we meet at our own space right on the lake! Some days we’ll find ourselves indoor, while the next we might be sitting around a fireplace. Ignite Student Ministries is a space where students can grow in community with one another and with their Creator. It’s a SUPER fun space for friends, food, and Jesus! This spring, we’re going to be talking about the mission Dei, which is Latin for “The mission of God.” We are going to explore what God’s mission is, why he has set this mission, and how we are invited into this mission! Come join us and grow together in relationship with God and others.
