Missionaries, Volunteers and Staff

Meet our great team of  full-time missionary volunteers, paid staff and short-term volunteers and interns that make-up our Ignite Ministry family!

Full-Time Missionary Volunteers
Our full-time missionaries are 100% volunteers and are not paid to work/serve here. Each family/individual must raise their own support to cover their needs.   If you are interested in supporting any of the families or individuals please contact them directly!
