It is a joy for me to reach my people with the gospel message through the vision of Ignite in my country. What an opportunity! It is amazing and exciting to see and hear about what God is doing in the lives of young people through the programs of Ignite. God is so good! He keeps bringing Pastors with so much passion for young people our way. Pastor Smith is also a blessing and I'm so happy for the opportunity to share with him the vision of Ignite. He understands where we are going and is on fire for Jesus! I will miss him when he travels!

Pray also for Christians who will read this and or hear about Ignite Liberia training project, to willingly give financially towards this worth undertaking, as well as people who will commit themselves to praying for Ignite Liberia training team as we travel with Ignite car.

I'm thankful to God for Ministry to Youth Class at JETS Seminary. I’m learning as I read the books written by Ignite. One of the myths that have been melted, that I held to for so long, is that young people aren’t interested in Christianity. But I now know that young people have interest, and what I need to do is to reach them with the gospel message. Young people have interest in knowing about God! Thank God for the book entitled- Seven Myths of Youth Ministry. It is a joy to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to lost youths through Ignite. Again, thank God for the course!
I am thankful to God for the course, Ministry to Youth. I am a changed person as far as youth ministry is concerned. The Ignite books are books I would recommend to pastors who want to see young people in their churches on fire for Jesus. The youth ministry in my church was dead, but as a result of this course, Ignite has been established in my church! I pray to continue working with youths as working with them is fun, and is exciting! May God bless my lecturer Rev. Emmanuel C. Jonah for exposing me to Ignite, and to the importance of youth ministry.
I am so thankful to God for the course entitled, Ministry to Youth. There is so much to learn, and I’m privileged to be a part of Ignite youth ministry as a result of this course. Ignite has taught me some principles of communicating the gospel to young people in a more effective way. I can’t wait to own a copy of the books written by Rev. Nigel James! They are very easy to read, and have changed my life completely! Thank God for Ignite ministry! I now know what the word Ignite means, and I’m glad to share this vision with youths of my church.
I’m happy to write to you from Liberia! God is working in Liberia, especially through Ignite ministry. I praise God for saving me through His grace, and for creating in me the desire to reach non Christian youths. I am learning too many things about youth ministry that I’m thankful to God for. Ignite is the right ministry for Liberia, and I’m happy to be a part of Ignite as a result of ministry to youth class at JETS Seminary.
