The Plan

While we will be facilitating elements of each of these goals annually for the next five years, we will also put special emphasis on one particular goal each year.

We recognize the reality that to have an on-going residency program, for example, we need to plan for it in our budget and prepare a plan for recruitment and logistics. To prepare our people to be market and neighborhood disciple-makers, we have to further create the atmosphere of expectation, vision and training for how it will work. To prepare for opportunities, we have to assess our region and prayerfully ask how we can best fulfill the Great Commission. So, there is annual work to be done for each goal with a special focus on one goal each year as well.

  • MULTIPLICATION OF disciple-makers

    In the commission Jesus gave His church, He said: “Then Jesus came to them and said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.'” Matthew 28:18-20 Read more...

  • MULTIPLICATION OF Opportunities

    We often think of church as the gathering of a large group on a Sunday morning for an hour or two. But the making of disciples can take different forms and we must be open to all the opportunities God may present to us. Read more...

  • Holy Moments

    Holy moments are a working of the Holy Spirit and not created by us. Isaiah experienced a holy moment when the Spirit of the Lord filled the Temple and he saw the Lord high and lifted up (Isaiah 6). John experienced the Presence of God so powerfully that he fell face down on the ground (Revelation 1:17). Others throughout history have attested to being overwhelmed, humbled, silenced or overjoyed by the presence of God in a holy moment. Read more...

Meet Shawn

My name is Shawn King and I'm the pastor of IGNITE.

I love to have fun learning new things and learning how to use the passions God put in me. Originally I went to college for Audio Engineering, but when I came back to Buffalo, God put a new passion for ministry on my heart.

I want to help our generation ask meaningful questions about purpose, truth and faith. God sometimes puts questions on my mind to struggle through and better understand His grace. Because of that, I love when our group comes together to sing about Him, to pray, and to help each other experience His grace.
