What Exactly Is 2 Ignite?

It is a challenge and encouragement to have 52 dates with your spouse in 2016. And as you do, share your experience with the rest of the world via social media using the City, Facebook and Twitter. It is our prayer and hope that as we witness other couples being intentional and creative, dating their spouse, we would be encouraged, not discouraged, to do the same! Every month there will be a prize given away during a special Sunday service. At the end of the year of dating your spouse one couple will win the grand prize! But every couple wins the ultimate and most priceless prize! What is that you might ask? Growing closer to your spouse! So how do you win you ask?
