Ignite Sandburg

Ignite Sandburg is a place where you can explore the claims of Christianity and discover who Christ really is without judgment.

We’ve created an environment where you can be yourself, ask questions, share your hopes and fears, and find the encouragement to become the person you were created to be, all while exploring what it means to follow Jesus.

No matter if you’ve known Christ your entire life, or are just curious about who God is, Ignite will help you go further in your faith journey.

Frequently Asked Questions

We believe scripture is best learned and applied when it is engaged with — which is why rather than sermons or lectures, we do weekly discussions.

Throughout the discussion time, we ask questions that help you reflect on the topic and apply it to your life. You also have the opportunity to ask questions and give input as well. It helps us grow together.

Not at all. We invite students of any faith and religious background to come to Ignite.

That’s okay – we have one for you! Just grab one off the table when you walk in. If you want one after coming to Ignite, feel free to take it back with you.

We have found that most students at Carl Sandburg College work in the evenings, so our Ignite Sandburg group meets during lunch time.

Students are welcome to attend the Ignite Monmouth large group to experience a longer group with worship and more fun activities.
