Ignite Youth is dedicated to gathering, raising up and sending out a new generation of Catholics who are on fire for Jesus, filled with the Holy Spirit, formed in the faith and centred in the Eucharist – young people living their Catholic faith with dynamism and passion to reach out to their world with the life of the Gospel.
We believe in real-world evangelisation; revealing Jesus Christ through a ministry of authentic relationships. By engaging young people where they’re at and empowering them to use their God-given gifts, our goal is to see young people not just changed for a day but transformed for life.
Ignite Youth is a ministry of Emmanuel Community, drawing together a network of youth leaders, schools, groups and individuals who share a common vision to communicate the gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit. Using contemporary culture to engage their hearts and minds, our dream is to spearhead a new evangelisation of our nation and pave a way for the Church of the future.
The experience of new life in Jesus is something that energises us to reach out to others with enthusiasm and dedication.
Using contemporary methods and expressions in the arts, music and media, we communicate in a language that engages the emerging generation.
As members of the universal Church, we live out our faith in the practice of the sacraments, commitment to Catholic teaching and mission to our world.
Through a ministry of genuine personal relationships we meet young people where they are at with understanding, love and acceptance.
by the Holy Spirit
Central to our ministry is a personal encounter with Jesus Christ and an experience of the the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit.
