A huge thanks to everyone who came to Ignition Middle School Conference in Troy, IL!
What a great weekend of learning to be All In for God! It was a really fun weekend.
A huge thanks to every church that attended. Thanks to Troy UMC for hosting the event and your great hospitality. Thanks to Andy Raines, the Jesus Painter, Lee Harrison and Jessica Przybylski for leading seminars and to Steven Wiseman, the weekend speaker. And praise the Lord for all the work done in the hearts of lives of students.
Here’s a wrap up note of encouragement from Steven:
“I really enjoy being with you all during Ignition. I was really encourage as many of you told me countless times throughout the weekend that you made a decision to be ALL IN for God. Let me encourage you all to continue to make the decision each day. Just like the three boys who were tossed in the fire, you will need to make a decision each day and each situation. Yes, we will have times that we are afraid to be ALL IN but like Joshua we need to stand strong and be courageous and remember that God is with us each step. As you work through your fear and make the decision to be ALL IN, just like David you will slay the giants you face each day. I am praying for you all!”
Steven Wiseman, Aldersgate UMC

It’s a privilege to serve in kingdom ministry and this weekend was no different! What a joy to serve along side the awesome Harvest Team: Clint, Emily, Drew, Nathan, Alex, Danny, and Bobby. A special thanks to Suzanne and Christine for your leadership. We had a great group of people serve from the church including Mark Fresen, David Rayle and Brendon for the tech team and a whole host of others who helped in hospitality, set up and leadership. From the people who donated snacks, to the greeters, the custodians, and the staff, it’s great to be a part of a church and ministry with a vision for reaching the next generation in the name of Jesus.
