Students have an Encounter

During the weekend of November 2-4, students from five different schools gathered together for our bi-annual Encounter Retreat.

We had 21 students total coming from Monmouth College, Carl Sandburg College, Joliet Junior College, Galesburg High School, and United High School, along with three Ignite staff members.

Students participated in sessions each day that helped them disconnect from school and work, and seek to encounter the God who created them. Sessions included: The Nature of God’s Love, Job Well Done (Being a Faithful Servant), Prophetic Prayer, Powerful Prayer, Empowered to Go final devotion, a time of silence, and numerous times of worship and prayer.

It was a powerful retreat where every student had some kind of encounter with God. But don’t take our word for it. Hear what our students had to say:
