About Ignite

Ignite encourages and enables new ministry innovation and initiatives by providing seed money and mentorship and other resources to support the new ministry for a short time until it can support itself. Ignite aims to invest at least $200,000 each year in 10 to 15 new ministries. Since 1996, the CRC has invested more than $9 million in new ministry initiatives, advancing over 85 ministries.
