IGNITE Confirmation (7-9)

IGNITE Confirmation is preparation for young people to publicly affirm the promises made at their baptism. IGNITE Confirmation begins in 7th grade and continues through 9th grade. IGNITE Confirmation is based on a small group model with single gender groups lead by an adult guide. Focus is on connecting, learning, and service.

IGNITE Volunteers

Adult and college leaders are the backbone of IGNITE ministry. In order to be responsible for the safety of kids and for the protection of adult volunteers, in 2004 the Incarnation Council implemented the Policy for Protecting Children and Youth. For many volunteer positions in IGNITE Middle School Ministry, including being a guide, substitute guide, or driver, adult volunteers need to submit a completed background check form at least one week prior to volunteering. Background checks are valid for 3 years.
