Hope for a Broken World: IGNITE 2018

Hope for a Broken World: Stress! Pain! Regret! Loneliness! Disappointment! Fear! Yes, my friends, our world is broken!

Whether we live or serve in the city or suburbs, we all can identify with sitting on that lonely park bench, feeling hopeless over our own personal issues while surrounded by the surreal brokenness of our world pressing in around us. How can we find hope that “does not disappoint” (Rom. 5:5) in our less-than-perfect, hope-dashing world? And how can remain full of hope as we seek to bring hope to those who are desperate for us to reach out to them in their utter brokenness? Come pause with us for this one-day conference to be renewed with fresh hope ~ hope that doesn’t abandon us in the midst of trials, that promises to be an “anchor for our souls” (Heb. 6:19)

Mark your calendars for this full-day IGNITE conference! We'll explore the topic of hope through:

  • Bible-focused keynote addresses
  • Meaningful corporate worship
  • Powerful prayer
  • An array of dynamic lab sessions designed to break through the hopelessness that blankets our world today

Don’t come alone! Experience hope in a huddle ~ bring a carload of girlfriends to this faith-inspiring day ~ your friends, your coworkers, your sisters, your neighbors ~ will all love being touched as much as you do by UNSTOPPABLE HOPE!

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone: my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5
