IgNite Program for Adults 21-35
IgNite offers opportunities for adults ages 21-35 to reflect on their everyday life experiences through a grounding in God’s love.
Young adults yearn to live life fully and to purposefully contribute to the well-being of their local community and the world at large. The vision for IgNite is rooted in a deep knowledge of God’s love. Many young adults in their twenties and thirties are trying to figure out how to live and what to do with their lives. IgNite offers opportunities and experiences aimed at grounding young adults in God’s love so they can courageously follow their deepest desires. Ignatian spirituality teaches that there need not be a separation of personal life choices, culture, and one’s search for God, but rather it offers a continual integration of culture and personal experience into one’s spiritual life.
Creating community across denominational lines and with young adults who do not identify with a faith tradition is a goal for IgNite. One of the many gifts of Ignatian spirituality is its ability to cultivate closeness with God within one’s own faith tradition. IgNite provides an atmosphere in which deeper learning and understanding can take place, followed by contemplation and discernment, which will hopefully develop young adults to become contemplatives in action.
