Ignite is a faith-based online magazine for young adults that exists to encourage Christians in today’s times and to inspire them to share the spark. Featuring stories that are significant and honest, with constant updates and an interactive platform, Ignite seeks to unite believers and inform them of the latest news and trends from a Christian prospective. It’s pure journalism, but with a passion for advancing the kingdom.
Miranda Wilcox, a 19-year-old sophomore at Oklahoma Christian, was brought in to spearhead the project in the fall of 2011. The concept of Ignite was created, and then set in motion by Designer and Developer Nick Sayre. By the beginning of the New Year, Ignite was born. With a staff that aspires to seek God and live intentionally to Him, Ignite delivers the good news and highlights how to actively live it out loud.
Ignite was encouraged by the Chronicle Board of Trustees and conceived by Dr. Lynn McMillon, distinguished professor of Bible at Oklahoma Christian University. McMillon, Editor, President and CEO of the Christian Chronicle, realized he wished to start a project – an online resource for young Christians growing up in today’s turbulent times. It would be a version of the Christian Chronicle, only more accessible for young adults. Interactive Marketing Coordinator at Oklahoma Christian suggested a student in the age group of the desired audience to write for the project and lead the way in creating it.
