WHO WE ARE
Ignite is our one year program dedicated to students between the ages of 18-25 that are passionate about ‘Following Jesus and Finding others’. We are intentional about making ourselves available to God, stretching our comfort zones and growing in our God-given gifts and purposes. We focus on raising strong, Christ-centred leaders through spiritual growth, personal development, gaining practical ministry skills and reaching others in our community.
WHAT WE DO
We put God first and are intentional about growing a deeper relationship with our creator. Being part of the Edge Church team means we have the privilege of being mentored one-on-one by various leaders as well as working through resources together as a group in weekly devotionals. We strengthen our faith by learning to rely on Him more and being accountable to one another as we journey together. We attend various leadership conferences as well as partner with other churches to increase our growth spiritually, personally and practically.
This is a life equipping program, preparing you for the rest of your life by learning some practical skills such as budgeting, time management, team work, communication and responsibility. We care for each Ignite student and walk an individual journey to strengthen and develop you personally. You’ll explore more of your personality; further developing your strengths and spiritual gifts and working on weaknesses. By the end of the year we believe you’ll know what the next step towards your future is and will be able to excel in it.
We love serving and growing our local church. The program gives you great exposure into behind the scene operations of ministry and allows you to explore and develop your personal gifts. We provide three focus areas being – Next Gen, Media and Worship – but are given overall insight to all three. We believe there is great value in serving and building into all that God is doing in our community and local schools.
WHEN & WHERE WE OPERATE
The program runs for 11 months of the year – from February to December – at the Edgemead Edge Church campus. A standard week includes working full-time, being involved in our Sunday services and serving at various additional church events. You will get Thursdays off as well as three weeks leave during the year, primarily in-line with school holidays.
