The end of the 2011-2012 school year brought with it some big changes in Ignite.
Ignite staff members Patrick Mundschenk and Remi Farina, both Leadership Coaches for the Ignite Monmouth group, stepped down from their positions to pursue a career move to Washington state. Remi accepted a position at a horse barn and training company in Spokane, Washington in March while Patrick is pursue work in the finance field.
Patrick had been a member and leader within Covenant Groups, the ministry that morphed into Ignite, for three years and was part of the transition into Ignite. He served as Leadership Coach since his graduation from Monmouth College in 2010 and was instrumental in forming the legal nonprofit entity.
Both will be greatly missed.
Jordan Knight, the Ignite Sandburg Leadership Coach, is also in a time of transition. He recently accepted a position with the Habitat for Humanity branch in Knox County and, as of now, will be unavailable to attend the regular Ignite Sandburg gatherings, as they meet over the lunch hour.
Jordan started a bible study at Carl Sandburg College four years ago and was instrumental in launching the Ignite group at that school. He will be missed at Carl Sandburg College, but we know the position at Habitat for Humanity is a step up for him and his family from his previous job.
New Staff Members:
Corbyn Wascher, the Instructional Design Assistant at Sandburg, will step up and take over duties as the Leadership Coach for the Ignite Sandburg group. Corbyn has been involved with Ignite since the beginning of the year, and comes to us with quite a bit of missions trip and youth group leadership experience.
Ian Smith, recent Monmouth College graduate and former Student Leader of the Ignite Monmouth group, will periodically assist the leadership group at Monmouth College. Ian will gain experience leading leaders, forming messages and resources and more. Ian is currently enrolled at Asbury Theological Seminary where he is pursuing a Masters of Divinity.
Ignite President Jason Vana will assume the role of Leadership Coach for the Ignite Monmouth group until a suitable replacement can be found.
Ignite is always looking for faith-filled individuals to help impact the lives of young people around the world. If you are interested in getting involved, check out our Staff and Volunteer Openings below!
