You were born for this


Dear Worldchangers, 

I am praying your summer has been filled with God’s presence and fresh hope!  I want to thank you for your burning heart for God’s Kingdom.  He is moving so powerfully in our region right now.  Remember, everywhere you go with Jesus, heaven breaks out! 
We are writing now to update you about Finger Lakes Ignite for the coming school year.  After much prayer, we have decided to suspend the quarterly format of the school with a view to resuming classes in fall 2019.

We are excited to announce that we are continuing our weekly Friday night Firehouse regional worship and ministry gatherings, as well as a series of special regional events starting this fall to continue to grow faith in our region and impact our communities.  We will also be making available this year a mobile Ignite team to visit your small group, church or community center to teach and activate some of the themes from our school. 


Special events scheduled at Reach Out Ministry Center this fall feature visiting speakers who share the same Kingdom values, priorities and goals we have spent the last three years teaching at Finger Lakes Ignite.  We hope you will join us to continue immersing yourself in life-changing Kingdom learning experiences that are so essential for the Body of Christ in the present season.  Please mark your calendars now to attend the following events:

  • Every Friday – Healing and Worship Nights, 6 PM – Dish to share meal | 7:30 – Worship and ministry! The first Friday of each month we hold a special healing service, and every Friday night is a life changing time to gather with others from the region in worship, experience the love of Jesus and partner with God in His supernatural presence.  Come ready to see God move and connect with other passionate believers!  Bring food if you can, but come no matter what!
  • September 28-30 – Abundance Based Thinking, with Jeff Wittmer, Burning Bush Life Coaching, Bethel Church, Redding.This powerful class teaches and equips you practically to reframe your perceptions, thinking and emotions to better align your daily life with Kingdom principles of favor and abundance taught by Jesus. You won’t want to miss this workshop, which will make you more effective in all aspects of your life with Jesus!
  • October  19-21 – Aaron & Connie Jones & Family Ministry.  Aaron and Connie carry a revival anointing and move in the prophetic with their children.  They bring a family-oriented ministry of power, hope and joy that brings breaktnrough and fresh encouragement to everyone they encounter.
  • Mobile IgniteTeam Workshops.  If you are interested in discussing a workshop or worship event from our mobile team, please get in touch.  We would love to tailor a customized evening or weekend event to meet special needs in our region. Please feel free to contact Hannah Ruth, Pat Lytle, Caleb and Natalie Vincent, or Leah Stockholm about planning a visit.  Or simply email: info@flssm.org.

We realize some of you have been planning to return to Finger Lakes Ignite this fall and we regret bringing you this news postponing classes for the coming year.  We apologize for any inconvenience, but we’re excited to continue to build community with you and see God move.  We are confident in what God is doing and know He is faithful to complete the work He has begun in all of us.  Please get in touch with any questions, ministry issues or thoughts you may have. 

We look forward to seeing you at a Friday night gathering soon!  Much love in the Lord and many blessings.

“My beloved ones, be supernaturally enthused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus!” Ephesians 6:10 (The Passion translation)


Unlock your gifts. Discover your identity. Change the world! 

Supernatural Ministry

Every believer’s inheritance is to carry the presence of God and see people transformed by the power of His love working through us. This happens as we move from simply believing in Jesus to believing like Jesus, and as we are transformed by the renewing of how we think, see, and experience life (Romans 12:2, John 6:29). Ultimately, Jesus changed the world through the supernatural power of his connection to the Father. The more we learn to embrace the loving presence of God and parti­ci­pate in His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4), the more we see the world around us change!


Class Environment

Finger Lakes Ignite classes are a safe place to step out in faith, take risks, grow and experience God in new ways! Every quarter begins with a launching conference with a regional or international guest speaker where we get to dive into the quarter’s theme to kick off classes. From there we grow weekly through live worship, hands on faith activation, powerful teaching and discovery times in small groups. Join a regional outreach and a worship and prayer day each quarter as our city burns for Jesus! 

Hands on faith activations cover areas such as hearing God’s voice, discovering your destiny, operating in the gifts of the Spirit, creative expression and prophetic evangelism. 



Students are transformed into walking in a Spirit-led lifestyle based on deeper understanding of their identity in Christ, destiny, greater confidence in their faith, and direct experience in exercising the gifts of the Spirit in all kinds of settings. In this context, evangelism and acts of service become an innate and continual witness to Christ’s supernatural victory on the Cross wherever we go. Our sphere of influence may be our home, school, the marketplace or any realm of secular culture in which we are called to engage.

One of the major functions of miracles and victorious living is to offer immediate, irrefutable proof of what God wants to happen on earth. It demonstrates who God is by showing what His reality looks like. The apostle Paul put it this way:

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2, emphasis added).

“It is unnatural for a Christian not to have an appetite for the impossible.”

Responsible Freedom
Risk Taking

FLSSM core values are founded on a culture of honor and integrity defined by responsible freedom, mutual respect, healthy boundaries, teach­ability, creative empowerment, and willingness to take risks for God. Classes are designed to connect and build community with other believers from our region because God works through relationships! This kind of Spirit-empowered culture is essential to release and sustain a lifestyle of revival and restoration in the world around us.
