IgniteUS 2020


IgniteUs is a middle school youth retreat organized by the Conference Council on Youth Ministries. We enjoy dynamic worship, small groups, games, free time, spiritual formation workshops, a campfire and fellowship. The purpose of IgniteUs is to encourage young people to grow in their faith as they explore who God is and who God is calling them to be. By gathering with youth from all over the conference, youth realize that they are not alone in their faith and are encouraged to continue on their faith journey together.

IgniteUS 2020 will take place at Camp Hanes in King, NC on April 24-26, 2020. This year's theme is "Focus on the Path". A mix of CCYM youth will be sharing personal stories and testimonies during worship. Music led by the CCYM Praise team.

The cost is $130 for students and adult leaders and includes a t-shirt, housing and food. 

Registration opens on February 14, 2020 and the deadline for registration is April 1, 2020.
