Ignition is Hope Des Moines' ministry for high school students in grades 9-12. Ignition meets Wednesdays during the school year.
Is Ignition a place for me?
No matter how shy, popular, busy, or religious you are (or are not!), high school can be tough to navigate these days. So we’ve designed Ignition to be a fun, weekly oasis for high school students to simply belong without pressure to “fit in,” ask any question without judgement, be inspired to live out their God-given purpose, and find new life in Jesus Christ! We love time with friends, soul moving music, and discovering how to make life better - all with Jesus at the center. Be prepared to leave each week encouraged and filled up for whatever life has ahead.
We have found there is a big difference between knowing God loves you and experiencing it for yourself. You’re invited to come and see for yourself. Tell your friends they’re invited too. It won’t be the same without you!
Ignition meets in person and online. Participants will choose an option during registration.
