In the spring of 2011, the dream and vision for Ignite Church Network was born. The desire was to create an intentional church multiplication network that would unite churches which are passionate about transforming their community with a new generation of churches, passionately focused on the transforming gospel.

This network was formed with a community of like-minded churches who had been started through the movement called the Missionary Church. This movement has been known for breaking the cast of traditional church-planting strategies.

The Ignite Network would focus on more than just traditional church planting. It is an intentional focus on making reproductive leaders who are effective at disciple making.
