What happens at Ignition?

  1. We build meaningful friendships through Ignition Life Groups
    Wednesdays, in person at Hope or online via Zoom
    You are so not alone! Ignition doesn’t just happen and then it is over. Quality time with your Ignition friends (new or current) tends to be a favorite! Pick a time that works for your schedule to meet up, support one another, be real with one another, and explore faith together. You’ll have an adult group leader or two to guide and support the group along the way. Feeling shy? We get it! Take your time, but know you can belong without having to “fit in” on day one if you’re open to it! Besides, even for the shy ones and faith is always more fun with friends! Join a group.
  2. We get filled up by experiencing God together at the Ignition Gathering
    Wednesdays 8:30-9:15 pm, in person at Hope or online via
    This is a great place to start. Join students from all over central Iowa each week to connect with God and each other through music, prayer, fun activities, and a heart-felt message from the Bible that is tailored specifically to your experience in high school. Register here.
