Czech Republic

Since 2007, Ignite has partnered with Křesťanské Centrum church in Český Těšín, Czech Republic to help impact the youth, young adults and university students within their city. In that time, we have led multiple mission trips, sent countless resources, provided leadership training, encouragement and coaching, and raised awareness of what God is doing in this country. In 2012, we officially launched Ignite Český Těšín - our first international Ignite group. Three years later, in 2015, we launched our second Ignite group in the city of Jablunkov. Our mission trips to the Czech Republic are spent empowering leaders and young people to effectively reach the next generation for Christ.

2016 Mission Trip

Youth Groups

Part of our mission trip will be spent ministering to youth at various youth group gatherings around the country, as well as speaking at church services. These may include churches and youth groups in Prague, Liberec, Bohumin, Jablunkov, and Cesky Tesin.

Ignite Conference

The Ignite Conference is a 3 day event to train and equip youth leaders to effectively reach the next generation. Hosted at Krestanske Centrum in the city of Cesky Tesin, this conference is open to youth and youth leaders. Our team will lead sessions and pray for youth leaders.


Kristfest: National Youth Camp

The first week of our trip, we will attend and lead sessions at Kristfest – a nation-wide youth camp. The week will consist of workshops, seminars, large group speaking and worship, and plenty of time to build relationships with other youth. Each year, God moves through our team to impact the lives of the young people we meet. Some gain a greater passion and desire for more of God. Others take another step closer to following Him. Others still build lifelong connections with both the youth in the youth group and with our team. And we don’t come back the same either.

”As a youth group we were challenged to take some concrete steps to how to do our youth groups differently and maybe more effectively in order to shape and impact more kids who live all around us.”
– Adam Hlavka
”When it came time for me to leave, Jason gathered the team together to pray for me. Not only did they bless me with their prayers, but they also reaffirmed (yet again) the things that God has been speaking to me for years.”
– Justin Holden
