Real breakthrough begins when God sends a spark…
The goal of these one-day gatherings is to see hearts softened and experience the streams of living water that Jesus promised. While focusing on the individual, these retreats also give context for a broader work of the Spirit on campus.
The formats of the retreats are flexible, in order to minister to diverse campus audiences and settings. The speakers come from Collegiate Impact’s own staff, as well as friends of our ministry who share a deep desire to see revived heart and ministry experience in proclaiming the message of transformation. It would be our privilege to help your ministry or campus body organize and schedule an Ignition Retreat.
Each Ignition Retreat has certain overarching principles that are Scriptural and seek to attract God’s presence. Ignition is about a body of believers on campus seeking Him together for transformation. The principles laced throughout the retreat, both through our messages, and worship are the DNA of an Ignition Retreat.
The Outpouring of the Spirit
We need breakthrough in our lives and ministry. We must look to a manifestation of Christ’s character to us, through an outpouring of His Holy Spirit.
We don’t want to rely on ourselves, but on God. It is difficult to move away from self-sufficiency, and sometimes we need God to break us from this.
The power of sin is in its secrecy. Living authentically means living a life that is not full of pretense, but appropriately exposes what is really going on in one’s life so that true community can be formed.
Jesus describes the life-giving power of the water He desires to flow through believers. Many times impediments arise in our hearts to block the flow and leave our spiritual lives dry and parched.
"Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand" were some of Jesus’ first words to ignaugurate His ministry. We must look to Holy Spirit to do heart surgery on us, so that we can turn and become more like Jesus.
No major move of God’s Spirit has occurred, without God first moving on His people to pray.
One surefire way to attract God’s presence is to develop an attitude of worship and reverence for Christ.
