IGNITE Conference 2017

The mid year break is right around the corner. What are you going to be doing? You could work, hangout at home and play games, scroll through Facebook, or watch youtube. I don’t know about you, but that gets old pretty quickly…

Wouldn’t you rather do something fun, refreshing and life giving!?! Then why not come to IGNITE Conference!

Be inspired, encouraged, and challenged to grow deeper in knowing Jesus Christ. We believe its the greatest gift you could receive. At our National Student Life & Athletes in Action conference, you’ll get to meet, hang out and have fun with other students from universities all around NZ. You’ll get to learn a bunch of life-changing lessons that will impact your relationships, perspectives, and your own spiritual journey.

We got three perceptive speakers that will share about having relationship with Jesus Christ and what that means for us. We live in a world that has a clamour of social justice causes, and a confusion of moral ethics. Why not Ignite your relationship with Jesus Christ and discover a deeper understanding of the world around you.

So come experience the fun, eat delicious food, make life-long friendships, while being challenged and inspired to know and follow Jesus Christ.

– contact your club president and ask if your Action Group is eligible for a club subsidy or a group fundraiser.
