March 24–26, 2015

Cornerstone • Chandler, Arizona

Ignite is a ministry-transforming event where church staff and leaders gather to increase leadership and best practices while being encouraged to influence the world through church planting and multiplication.

At Ignite 2015 we will begin to define and understand our identity. Our identity not only defines who we are — it determines the direction our lives and ministries take. Stay true to your identity and you may end up where you always dreamed. Lose your identity and you are sure to miss your God-given destiny.
