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.
