Monthly Update


We are off to a great semester. We have a vibrant group of students on campus eager to jump into the “Ignite Way” of learning, serving and growing. We believe firmly that when personal character and discipline is coupled with education and training, the local and global community is greatly impacted. Thank you to our partners who pray for us, our students and our ministry, and to the many who graciously give of their finances in partnering with us in our commitment to keep the cost of an accredited college education within reason. 

We thought we would do something different with this month’s update on LPC Ignite. We are extremely thankful for the incredible leaders God has brought our way and onto our administrative team. We thought you would be interested in meeting them, which in turn will bolster your confidence even more that our students are being led and covered well!

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Fall Preview RECAP

Do you love TEDTalks? So do we! For Fall Preview 2017 we offered our guests the Ignite version of these productions, called IGNITETalks!

Employing the four pillars of Discipleship, Academics, Community Development and Global as our framework, faculty, staff and students presented sessions, entitled: Love Your God With All Your Mind; The Celtic Contribution to the Church and The Three C’s of Community; What Does the Bible Say About ISIS?; Falling in Love with Missions in the Balkans; and The Discipleship Revolution, to name a few. It was a bulls-eye success!

In addition, we had a Food Truck Dinner, Milkshake Bar, and Coffee House highlighting the amazing musical and comedy talents of our students, as well as the Gaga Pit Championship of the World as part of our games night!
