All the encouragement.
We are changing formats for 2021 and bringing you monthly webinars to keep you encouraged, inspired, and challenged
for the new reality we are facing
Like you, we moved online.
While we would have loved to see you in Orlando this year, we couldn't be more excited about the possibilities an all-digital conference brings! In 2020 we had 130 leaders from 25 states join us. In 2021 the possibilities are now limitless.
We've crafted a special theme for our current season: Adapting to a New Reality: Living into a Fresh Vision for God’s Church.
Starting this January we are offering monthly webinars focused on unique topic areas:
January - Encouragement Beyond Fatigue
February - Justice and the Common Good
March - Hybrid Community: Virtual & In-Person
April - Creative Expressions of Church
May - BONUS WEBINAR: Thriving Beyond Covid
October - BONUS WEBINAR: Topic TBD
Better yet, we've got our most diverse and creative speaker line-up ever!
ELCA Fund For Leaders
$6,000 raised in 2020!
The ELCA Fund for Leaders has provided $25 million in scholarship support for over 1,000 seminary students since 2000. The fund’s long-range goal is to provide full-tuition support for every candidate attending an ELCA seminary. To help future leaders and to bless the church, Ignite the Church Conference presenters donate their time so that all conference proceeds can be given to the Fund for Leaders. Since its inception in 2017, nearly $10,000 has been donated. There will be no charge for the 2021 conference, but in the spirit of previous conferences, to make an on-going gift possible in lieu of a registration fee a one-time donation of $25 (or more) to the ELCA Fund for Leaders is suggested. Whatever gift you wish to share, large or small, is appreciated and will be passed along to the Fund for Leaders.
