TCU Ignite celebrates its 100th service


    TCU Ignite held their 100th service Monday night in the third-floor ballroom of the Brown-Lupton University Union, celebrating a growth of attendance and outreach.

    Kaity Wegen, president of Ignite, said she saw the service as 100 Mondays that “the Lord has provided for.”

    “To see this ministry happen week after week and see even one single student show up blows me away,” Wegen said. “For this to happen 100 times over is such a gift.”

    Ignite was founded in the spring of 2010 by 11 TCU students as a place for students to join together in worship. More than 250 students attended the 100th service Monday night.

    Robert Newberry, vice president of Ignite, said seeing “how God brings people together on campus” is what makes Ignite so special.

    “So many things have to go into this ministry because it’s so large that we get to see the Lord work in incredible ways,” Newberry said.

    Ignite is developing “core groups” for students who want to be more involved with Ignite outside of Monday nights. Core groups will meet once a week to discuss topics from Ignite, books of the bible, and to get to know each other better.

    Ignite will not meet next week during spring break. The next service will be the following Monday, March 17 at 9 p.m.

    Ignite is accepting applications for their 2014-2015 leadership team. Applications are due by noon on Monday, March 17.
