What is Ignite?
Ignite events are condensed, 2-day workshops of the Dunamis Projects typically conducted on Friday evenings and all day Saturday.
Ignite provides opportunity for a congregation to catch the Holy Spirit’s flame and grow in faithfulness to Jesus Christ. You can kindle or rekindle the fires of renewal so that there may be
- deepening fellowship,
- growing faith in Jesus Christ, and
- empowerment to advance the Kingdom of God.
Ignite conveys a Biblical message that will enrich and empower the people of your church, enabling them to serve with joy.
Each Ignite event will include worship, teaching, testimonies, practical application of the teaching, prayer and community building.
Ignite 1: Welcome, Holy Spirit!
The story of God’s empowering work building the Church and advancing His Kingdom. Examine the exciting balance between the inward and outward working of the Holy Spirit that provides a Biblical way of growing in both the fruit and the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Included will be teaching on:
- The Trinity
- Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit
- Being filled with the Holy Spirit
The overall working of the Holy Spirit is clearly presented as that of giving glory to Jesus Christ and making His presence and work real in the world today.
Ignite 2: Building the Body of Christ in the Power of the Holy Spirit
Engage in the dynamic of cooperating with the Holy Spirit in doing the work of Jesus Christ to accomplish the purposes of God the Father. Practical and urgent topics will be discussed:
- How do we receive guidance from the Holy Spirit?
- How do I know that what I have received is truly from God?
- What about the manifestational gifts of the Holy Spirit?
The emphasis of this topic is the "dance of cooperation" with the Holy Spirit in doing the work of Jesus Christ. This cooperation helps us have a balanced expression of the spiritual gifts.
Ignite 3: Prayer in the Power of the Holy Spirit
A fresh look at becoming a praying church. Prayer in the Power of the Holy Spirit guides you into the kind of prayer you’ve been longing for: powerful, life-changing participation with your heavenly Father in bringing forth His Kingdom on earth.
- Asking in the name of Jesus Christ
- How vision and prayer shape the future
- Intercession as standing in the gap
Ignite 4: Evangelism in the Power of the Holy Spirit
You'll learn a way of personal evangelism that is easily doable, no matter what fears stand in your way. You'll learn how to cooperate with the Holy Spirit and experience His help in engaging people in meaningful spiritual conversation that helps them take a step towards Jesus Christ
- Four stories that every Christian must know.
- How to get your story into two phrases
- How to discern God given moments to talk about Jesus
The Cost of the Ignite Event: None -- This is a Gift!
PRMI and the Dunamis Institute have a long-standing policy of not charging for ministry.
We ask for the opportunity to share the vision of this work and to provide an opportunity to receive an offering.
We are international in scope, and offerings received in our respective countries may be used to extend ministry in other nations. Gifts are also tax exempt or gift-aided according to the laws of the nation where given.
Comments from Ignite participants
“At our leadership team meeting we all expressed such awe at the working of the Holy Spirit that we witnessed and experienced. Ignite will prove to be a significant Holy Spirit-initiated and led event in the history of New Life Celebration Church.
I’m coming to a fuller understanding that the Great Commission has more to do with spiritual depth than strategies and structures. It is beginning to resonate with me that the journey from conversion to transformation, from salvation to discipleship is fully dependent on the work of the Holy Spirit. I believe that it is nearly impossible to become Christ-like without saying 'Come, Holy Spirit, come.'”

“Ignite was an important instrument in God’s continued work of growing our desire for and understanding of ministry that is empowered by the Holy Spirit. I have personally been inspired by the passion and servant heart displayed by the Ignite team not only during our initial Ignite experience, but prior to and following.”
Rev. John Aukema
Gateway Community Church (CRC)
“I found that the Ignite Team was able to effectively engage our people in a process of learning about the work of the Holy Spirit. This speaks to how they each were able to present the material in a way that was catered to our people, many of whom are brand new Christians. Several people asked ‘When is the next Ignite?’, or said ‘We need more of these.’ Even just a week ago, I heard someone else refer to Ignite as a very crucial time for us at The River. Our people were truly blessed by your presence and teaching. We are indeed looking forward eagerly to the next time that you can join us, and to an ongoing process of igniting our congregation with and by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Upward Challenge is a week-long event that focuses on introducing High School through College aged youth to the person of the Holy Spirit, encouraging them to seek a deeper walk with Jesus Christ and nurtures a growing relationship with God the Father. During the week, youth participate in interactive teaching sessions, small group discussions, personal solo times, one-on-one prayer ministry, powerful times of worship, group games, a challenging field trip, and times of wonderful fellowship and service.
