Ignite A Movement is an organization rooted in the love of God and dedicated to worldwide transformation through revival. It’s our goal for God’s love to be manifest in signs, wonders, and miracles. The atmosphere of our organization is charged with faith and exuberant joy, which manifests in all we do. We believe we’re on the edge of the greatest revival of all time. It’s our vision to see history become His-story as the kingdom of this world becomes the kingdom of our God. We honor all that God has done in the lives that have come before us in surrender and abandonment, we also recognize that carrying Him well also means we take responsibility of our walk and celebrate all that has been and look forward with fierce expectation to be used here and now in our time! We welcome you to join us in this adventure! Ignite A Movement. Our mission is revival – globally, domestically, and personally. We believe that expanding The Kingdom through the manifest presence is a vital key to a great awakening of the hearts of people. This includes outreach, serving the poor and the broken. We have a heart that desires to see wholistic movements of healing. Triune healing of body, soul and spirit. Our desire simply put is to see Jesus move in ways that He desires to. Therefore, we allow Him to use us to accomplish His heart on the Earth.
As an organization, we have had the opportunity to travel to many parts of the Earth to see and be a part of what God is doing! It’s our goal to bring all that He is doing in the Earth to all the places we are invited to!
We have partnered with many churches that have allowed us to come into their buildings and preach and minister to their congregations. It is the heart of IAM to treat each and every church as a family in the Kingdom. We come in knowing that we are stepping on someone else’s ground and we come to serve them as well as pour out all that we carry to be a part of Kingdom growth. Some come to plant, some come to water, some will get to harvest, IAM understands that not one of those is greater than the other. So we come ready to plant, water or see the harvest asking as it points to Jesus! We come simply to express and display the heart of the Father. To live a life before and after every event or trip that hosts the presence of God in daily life as worship to our King.
As a missional organization, we have a huge heart for the nations of the Earth! The Word says “Let the Nations be glad!” (Psalm 67:4). We believe that the goal of Missions is to bring worship to the Lord and to make Him known among the nations. We understand that what transforms nations is simply the knowing of Jesus and walking with Him and the fullness that He made a way for on the Cross.
The message doesn’t change for us – Jesus. Yet, the methods can look like an assortment of goodness. We believe that we are called to love the poor and tend to the widow! We choose to intentionally see those and be the hands and feet of Jesus to them. It is our heart’s desire to continually take teams to various places across the Earth for His namesake. We believe that the harvest is bountiful but the laborers are few so it is our joy to make opportunity for new laborers to taste and see the goodness God in the Nations of the Earth. We go wherever He calls up to, in love, power, and truth! To carry triune revival to the nations, as Jesus did when He walked this Earth. We love the aspects of training those who we take with us. We teach culture, activate the gifts of The Spirit, and cultivate family within all of our teams!
