Ignition is a group action/reflection learning experience developed by Mark Sayers of Forge Missional Training Network in Melbourne. Participants meet in small groups over 12 weeks to learn missional principles, explore the book of Acts and reflect on the last week’s missional exploration action.
Small group (up to 10)
Styles of Learning
Personal Bible reading, Group discussion, missional tasks.
Number of sessions
Length of sessions
1 hour (with 1.5 hours of homework each week)
Introduces Christians to mission in the place where we live – the emrging global culture. After each gathering the group participants are assigned weekly missional tasks in a context they choose. This missional exploration can be sharing the gospel with a friend, studying a subculture/ethnic group/area for mission, building relationships at a local sporting club, volunteering at a soup kitchen, starting a missional community or anything in between. The missional exploration is about spending time listening to those who are yet to become followers of Jesus and beginning a process of sharing God’s love with them through actions and words.
