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.
We'll update this page with our planned Mission Trips for 2018 soon. Below you can read about the trips we took in 2017.
Alaska: June 17-25, 2017
We will be working with a ministry called Graceworks. They have been serving in Alaska for many years now. We will be helping to feed hungry, disadvantaged children a good lunch. In the afternoon we will work in a local park teaching unchurched children and youth the Bible. We will support that work with games, crafts, music and recreation. We will also get to host Block Parties in the evenings. All of this will be done in partnership with local churches to reach one of the most unchurched areas in all of the United States.
The cost of this trip will be around $1200-1300 depending on how quickly students commit and how cheap we can find airfare
Ukraine: The 2nd and 3rd weeks in July, 2017 something like ~July 6th-July 22 (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 in the past 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!
Serving the global church is an incredible way to grow in your own discipleship and have a lasting effect on the lives of many people.
