The ultimate how-to book for reaching more people for Jesus Christ

Ignite sets forth a step-by-step, biblically grounded, proven plan for creating immediate church growth by utilizing a "Big Day" to mobilize the church for evangelism. This user-friendly guide will show you how to reach the unchurched in your community and break through the debilitating growth barriers that are holding your church back.

You can reach--and keep--modern-minded, unchurched people to create and sustain growth momentum. Ignite shows you how it's done.

"Searcy brings the unique frontline perspective of a pastor who is in the trenches week after week, figuring out how to effectively reach people with the gospel. Ignite is a very practical manual for any church trying to break through the next barrier to transforming their city for Christ."--Geoff Surratt, pastor of ministries, Seacoast Church

"Ignite will help you see things in a clearer, simpler way. It will help you see what's important and what's not in our mission to serve others by giving them hope in Jesus."--Dino Rizzo, founding pastor, Healing Place Church; author, Servolution

"There's a big difference between working hard and working smart. In this dynamic new book, Searcy helps readers be good stewards of their valuable time. I was underlining on every page."--Charles Arn, president, Church Growth, Inc.
