I am overwhelmed with joy in the Lord my God!

For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness.

I am like… a bride with her jewels.

Isaiah 61:10

Joy is the serious business of heaven.

~ C.S. Lewis

This year we are focusing on JOY! Don’t we all need more?! We’re going to have some laughs, some fun, and also do a deeper dive into joy in the good and the hard.

Dayspring Children’s Pastor Jan Wickline

My husband Ted and I have been attending Dayspring since 1996. I am currently the volunteer Children’s Pastor, a role which I cherish! If you attended Ignite last year, you heard a part of my life story. This year, join me Friday evening to find humor in my less-than-ideal past and possibly humor in other things as well! Let’s laugh the night away as we embrace Proverbs 17:22: “A merry heart does good, like medicine.” Saturday afternoon join me again as we embrace what our amazing Heavenly Father has for us – every day. I am so excited to spend Ignite weekend with my amazing sisters in Christ!

Vicki Conn

First of all, I am a child of God and am in love with Jesus! I have been given the amazing opportunity to be married to Jay Conn, who is currently the pastor at Martins Creek Mennonite Church, and have 4 children and 1 grandson. I also serve as the Executive Director of Love INC of GHC (Love in the Name of Christ of Greater Holmes County), a local ministry who connects, equips and brings churches and volunteers together to serve families in transforming ways. Along with that, I am a National Trainer through Love INC and the Chalmers Center. I have always had a heart to teach and engage with others nearby and all over the world. Sharing, speaking and writing about the love of Christ brings great joy to my heart!

Workshop Speakers

Workshop Speakers

We are offering two workshops, one before lunch and one after lunch, so you’ll get a chance to hear both sessions!

Jenny Strasbaugh

Jenny has been a Christ follower for quite some time now, but still needs his strength to get through each day! Her husband Craig and 3 girls, Elena, Marita, and Aubrey, are a delight. It’s been said that their dinner conversations are podcastable, but that has little to do with her (most of the time!). Although prayer has been a part of Jenny’s daily life for as long as she can remember, her grandmother reminding her she prayed for her daily is one of her most vivid memories. Gardening, stories, campfires, canning, and coffee are some of the things that bring excitement to her days.

Crystal Martin

Crystal is the mama of 4 sweet littles here on earth, and the love of her husband, Aaron. After several miscarriages and the pre-term labor, and death of her daughter, Crystal will share testimony of how God broke through her pain and ultimately restored her joy.
