Ignite - A Prophetic Beginning in Southern California

I've been privileged to work with student leaders from different So Cal campuses this past year and half. Their hearts burn for one thing: to know Him and make Him known in our generation. There is a unusual movement of Biblical "unity" touching the university campuses of Southern California like I have never seen. Even in the past 2 months I have spoken or been connected to unity movements at Cal Poly Pomona, UCLA, USC, UCI and now Ignite, a city wide coming together of God's children seeking His face in repentance, unity and revival. Don't mis-read this, what we are seeing here is not just "unity for unity's sake" it is "unity with a purpose" God is calling forth His body at this hour to "Unite in Prayer" and "Unite in Action" to evangelize the lost and fill the earth with the knowledge of His glory. I gave a prophetic word to the USC body of Christ in the first semester of 2006 that a "university prayer movement" would come forth out of this campus touching every other campus in Los Angeles, I believe Ignite (sparked by a USC weekly prayer meeting) will be the small beginning of something massive. In the coming years, we will see networks of student-led simple churches, touching and multiplying into the regions and cities of LA by the hundreds and thousands. Then I believe at strategic moments, these networks of simple churches will gather in stadiums, city-wide to celebrate and worship the King, pronouncing His fame to the cities and nations. It will come forth, these stadium gatherings maybe once a month, or a few times a year, where the "Church" gathers as a "city wide church" just like we see in the book of Revelations. There will no longer be denominational and doctrinal divisions, but rather one common vision of "Lifting up Jesus so all men will be drawn unto Him." It is building the "House" (city-wide church) and "households" (networks of simple churches). I know it will happen, in the coming years "The Rose Bowl" and other stadiums will be filled with over a hundred thousand Christ followers once a month, praising God, interceding and proclaiming the Kingdom with signs, wonders and miracles for the city to encounter and awe at His presence. There will be tens of thousands of believers networked in simple churches on campuses, in the marketplace, in communities and neighborhoods, all over the cities daily breaking bread, enjoying fellowship, praying and giving themselves to the apostolic teaching while enjoying favor with all, saved and unsaved, Holy Spirit let it come to pass, a 4th wave of not only revival in Southern California once again, but a mighty reformation and revolution of the Church rising up as your spotless and beautiful Bride.

Ignite: Greater LA area worship night on Feb 23 hosted by college students

On Friday, February 23, 2007, Christian students from all over the greater LA area (every Cal State, UC, community college, private university, etc.) are uniting under one roof to "join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 15:5-6).

Next Friday, we will ignite a passion for Jesus Christ on our campuses, in our city, and in our generation. This is an opportunity you don't want to miss, so join us in glorifying God during a night of worship, prayer, and encouragement.
