Ignite


Each year, 60+ students from residential life, student activities, athletic teams, campus organizations, and many other leadership positions gather at Scottsville Retreat Center for our annual leadership retreat, Ignite. The retreat focuses on 3 major areas of student leadership development:

  • Practical Skills for Leadership
  • Understanding Foundations of Leadership
  • Preparing Spiritually as Leader

In 2015 the theme for Ignite was VOICES.  We focused on finding your unique voice as a leader, how to integrate the voices of your team or group into a cohesive vision, and how to hear God's voice as you prepare for your role in leadership.  Check back soon for details about IGNITE 2016.
