MAY 5 -7, 2023





Welcome to Ignite Retreats! This year's theme is "Hard to Believe: The Story of Jonah." We are excited to announce that our retreat will be held from May 5th to 7th at Salem Acres Bible Camp. At Ignite Retreats, we believe that youth need a chance to connect with each other, grow in their faith and recharge their spiritual batteries. Our retreat is designed to provide a fun and engaging environment that is perfect for doing just that! With powerful worship, inspiring messages, and exciting outdoor games, you're guaranteed to have a great time.

We are also thrilled to welcome a special guest worship team from Living Stones Church in Red Deer, Alberta. Their energetic and passionate music will surely enhance your retreat experience and bring you closer to God.

Don't miss this opportunity to spend time with other young people who share your faith. With all the activities and events planned, you're sure to make new friends, deepen existing relationships, and come away with a stronger connection to God.

So, sign up now and join us for a life-changing experience at Ignite Retreats! We can't wait to see you there.

This years theme!

Have you ever run away from something really scary? Whether it was a spider, a house you thought was haunted, or just a really dark basement, it's normal to run away from things that scare us. But sometimes we find ourselves running from things that could help us grow (even if they are a little scary). In this series, we'll learn about the story of a man named Jonah, who ran away from something God asked him to do and learned an important lesson in the process. Through his story, we'll discover that you can't outrun God's love, and because God loves us so much, even when we mess up, God gives us more chances.
