This year, I am serving as the Director of Ignite. My primary role is to cast vision for the organization and to spur on the executive team to pursue their roles with passion. I provide a direction and the rest of staff makes the magic happen.
My job as Ignite’s Assistant Director is to manage all legal and administrative matters involved in running Ignite. I am the liaison to our retreat speaker, band, and campground administrators, and I support other exec team members in their projects to ensure that everyone’s ideas come together to support Ignite’s mission in the best way possible.
Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have logistical questions about camp or would like some more information about our speaker and band!

As the Development Executive, I am responsible for the fundraising for Ignite. I get to handle the major outside relationships with businesses and parents! I plan Family & Alumni Weekend, Snowball, and Support Letters.
Our job as Training Execs is to lead the Training Team, made up of co-chair and prayer team trainers, in meetings and train them to lead their meetings with their co-chairs and prayer team.
