This week is our annual IGNITE Series, a Spiritual Emphasis Week when we’re asking God to light a spiritual flame in each of us; one that will move us to know Him more fully, follow him more deeply, and reflect him more brightly.

Our guest speaker is Geoff Eckart, Lead Pastor at Daybreak Church in Grand Rapids. Geoff is also the Founder and CEO of Never the Same, a national youth ministry organization that aims to see new generations transformed in Christ through biblical discipleship and spiritual disciplines using theology, community, and technology.

Geoff was born and raised in Indianapolis, earned a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University and a Master’s degree from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.

He’s an adventurist, an amateur land sailer, mountain biker, marathon runner, kayaker, and he’s hiked the elusive Isle Royale National Parkbungee jumped in New Zealand and been skydiving.

In 2020, Geoff took a several hundred mile prayer walk on the Trail of Death from Indiana to Kansas.

He is married to Arianna and together they have three daughters.
