IGNITE: North Texas 2019 (ALDE)


As a passionate Christian leader, you want to ensure your organization is utilizing the best strategies and resources to meet its mission, while growing your skills and career. Whether you are an Executive Director, Principal, Director of Development, Marketing Specialist, Pastor, Gifts Officer, Social Media Manger, staff contributor, volunteer, or in any other position involved in nonprofit leadership, fundraising, or marketing, you sometimes find yourself stuck doing the same things that get your organization the same results.

You need a community of fellow Christian development professionals where you can get expert training, networking and resources to help you implement new ideas and proven best practices in your organization. Are you ready to grow beyond the status quo and increase support for the great mission of your organization?

ALDE has been a leading community of faith-based fundraisers for 40 years, and our annual conference, IGNITE: North Texas 2019, is the best place to connect with faith-based colleagues; receive world-class training; learn about new and innovative resources and tools; and grow your skills and talents alongside fellow Christian leaders.

IGNITE 2019 will be held at the Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, January 31-February 3, 2019. Early Bird Registration saves you $175 (ends January 3). There are $300 scholarships available to help make the conference more affordable. Scholarships are first come, first served, and a limited number are available. Get more info at www.ignitespark.org/scholarships! Are you local to the Dallas-Fort Worth area? We even have day rates at www.ignitespark.org/dayrate! IGNITE is affordable, accessible, and valuable!

When you register for IGNITE, be sure to become a full member of ALDE and get access to ongoing training, webinars, networking, and resources year-round. Visit www.alde.org to start your membership in this community of world-class Christian fundraisers. You’ll also get the lowest IGNITE rate.

By attending IGNITE 2019, you’ll learn from experts on how to increase giving; build better teams; get insights into new trends and emerging technologies; boost your strategies in marketing; communications, and social media; strengthen your organization and fund your mission; and build new relationships with fellow Christian nonprofit leaders that last far beyond the conference. Don’t stay stuck in the status quo, working on your own. Join this community of Christian fundraisers who are utilizing the things they learn at IGNITE every day in their ministries. IGNITE your organization and career with ALDE and IGNITE 2019!
