As always, the IGNITE conference is FREE to attend. This conference and all expenses are provided by the ladies of SPARK as a way to bless our creative community. While this conference is free to attend, we would LOVE to give back to Gateway Church with a generous donation for their ministries. The church has graciously opened their doors to us free of charge, and Pastor Shawn is giving up his personal time on a Saturday to set up sound and lighting. If you are able, we are asking for a $25 donation to Gateway Church.

Your donation is tax-deductible. Please note, as your donation is going directly to a non-profit organization, all donations are non-refundable. It is not a "ticket" so it cannot be refunded or transferred.

Donate with a Credit Card

1. Text “gatewaychurchnj” (don’t forget the NJ) to 77-9-77.

2. Click the link in the text.

3. Enter the amount and put "IGNITE" as the memo.

4. Complete the final steps through PushPay.

Donate with a Check

You can bring a check with you on the day of the conference. We will collect donations at the check-in desk upon arrival. Please make check payable to: Gateway Church
