We would love for you to join us for one of our upcoming mission trips. If you have any questions, PLEASE contact Jeffrey.
In the past four years, Ignite has taken mission trips to Guatemala City, Guatemala - L'viv, Ukraine - Hauncayo, Peru - Anchorage, Alaska - and Memphis, TN. In addition, you can see on the map the many locations where Ignite has either taken a mission trip or has sent students on short and long term mission trips over the past few years.
See below for info on our 2018 Mission Trips
Hurrican Relief - Texas: March 10-16, 2018
We will be working with a ministry that is organizing groups to come down and provide help for the rebuilding process in the greater Houston area. No professional construction experience is required. The specific dates and costs of this trip will be determined once we have a more definitive idea of the number of people we have going.
The cost will probably be somewhere between $550 and $650.
*********Deadline to sign-up for Texas trip is Dec. 15, 2017*********
Guatemala: June 23-30, 2018
We will be working with a ministry called New Life Children's Home. They are home to over 50 children. We will spend time worshiping with and getting to know the children. We'll have dinner with them and plan several activities to love on them and bless them. We will specifically be working with the older children (teenagers) in the homes as it will be their "spring break." In the past we've been able to go on hiking trips and adventures with the kids. We'll be staying and working there onsite at the ministry's facilities. We will also be working alongside some great friends from Asbury University in Kentucky on this trip, as we have in the past. This will be Ignite's third trip to New Life.
The cost of this trip will be around $1400, depending on airfare costs. The sooner we have a committed team, the cheaper airfare we will be able to find.
Ukraine:The 2nd and 3rd weeks in July, 2018 something like ~July 6th-July 21 (depending on travel arrangements)
- A multiple week trip to Ukraine where we will work with local church and ministry leaders to host a Christian camp for youth and young adults. Ignite has worked with these camps over the past 5 years and has an established relationship with these ministries. We will also partner with a campus ministry in L'viv to work with our friends and the local church ministries. We will remain in Western Ukraine and will not be close to the center of the tensions in Eastern Ukraine and Russia. We would not look to take this trip if we did not believe it was safe. Jeffrey will be happy to speak to anyone or their parents or family if that is needed. There will probably be scholarships available for this trip.
The cost of this trip will be around $2000, but with several scholarships available. With a scholarship (limited number available) the cost could be closer to $1500.
Students raise all of their money for these trips with the help of friends and family and all money raised can be submitted for tax exemption. Please don't let money be the reason why you may not consider participating in a mission trip!
