Ignite News: November 2017 Edition


Issue #3 – November 2017



God is on the move and when women get together and get on page with Him, great things can happen. In this edition of Ignite News:

  • Hear how God brought almost 200 women together in Detroit and one woman’s story of going from feeling like she wasn’t enough to finding her passion.
  • Get connected with author and speaker Kim King who just wrote a book for women about the giving journey and how to have a plan
  • One woman’s story of enjoying the ‘American Dream,’ but later discovering God’s generous vision for her city.
