About Ignite 456
What is Ignite 456?
Ignite 456 is a retreat designed just for families with upper-elementary-aged kids (preteens). The preteen years are a transitional time in a kid’s life
that can be awkward and, often, very challenging. We recognize the importance of an intentional discipleship plan for them and the entire family.
Preteens desire and need something that is just for them. We want to meet that need and come alongside local churches and families to ignite the faith
of these kids.
Ignite 456 is a huge two-day family retreat. Through live worship, a dynamic guest speaker, engaging lessons, family devotionals/discussions and strategic
play time, your family will have an unforgettable experience in which you’ll grow in your relationships with each other and Christ.
Special Guest Speaker Jim Howard is the Family Minister at the First Colony Church
in Sugar Land, TX. He has spent the last 18 years serving in Children's ministry in Kentucky, Florida and Texas.
Jim is a gifted communicator with a deep passion for kids and families to understand who they are to God. He has been over ministries
that serve anywhere from 600 to 1500 kids weekly. He has a wife Kristie and graduated from Cincinnati Christian University
with Graduate work at Georgetown College.
Jim is a sought after speaker for national conventions such as North American Christian Convention,
Children's Pastors Conference, Kentucky Teens for Christ, Virginia Christian Convention, several camps and
retreats across the United States. He is also a contributor to Children's Ministry Magazine.
