“Too often church leaders are simply headed from one meeting to another, one event to another, meeting budgets and trying to reach attendance goals. […] I want to invite you to think differently about the ministry you lead. After leading a ministry with 200 staff and 900 interns for 30 years with a 30-million-dollar annual budget, I want to share with you a phrase that I wish I had heard a long time ago: ‘Strategic leaders work on their organization, not in their organization.’ ”



Dr. Ron Luce was the President and Founder of Teen Mania Ministries in the United States.
Teen Mania was one of the largest parachurch youth ministry movements in the world in the
nineties until 2015. Each year, Teen Mania would host dozens of large youth gatherings in
arenas and stadiums reaching millions annually. In 2002, U.S. President George W.
Bush appointed him to the White House Advisory Commission on Drug-Free Communities, on
which he served until 2004.
After thirty years of hosting stadium events for youth, Ron has refocused his energy to equipping
pastors on reaching their communities with exponential church growth through strategic
discipleship. Ron Luce traveled the world, visiting many of the most successful churches on the
planet. He interviewed church leaders, observed their habits, and asked lots of questions. He
spoke to leaders and parishioners, identifying the congregation's patterns and best practices that
he now teaches around the world.

Ron is the author of over 30 books, He received his bachelor's degree in Psychology and
Theology from Oral Roberts University, a Masters in Counseling Psychology from
the University of Tulsa and earned his Doctorate of Strategic Foresight from Fuller University.


Shawn has been in full-time ministry for over 20 years serving in many areas such as youth pastor, college pastor, evangelist, missionary, professional sports chaplain and a church growth consultant.

In the late 90’s, Shawn went to the Brownsville Revival School of Ministry in Pensacola where he earned an associates degree in ministry and served full-time on the prayer team at the Brownsville Revival. He went on to become a youth pastor in Texas and Iowa. His youth ministry, Reality, experienced amazing growth going from 4 students to several hundred students in less than 2 years with outreaches topping over 1,000 students.

In 2004, Shawn founded Teen Unite, an evangelistic parachurch ministry uniting youth ministries together in cities across America for a united evangelistic event. Teen Unite reached thousands of High School students across the United States. Simultaneously, Shawn served as a professional sports chaplain, working with teams such as the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Dallas Desperados, Allen Wranglers, Texas Revolution and several other professional indoor football teams between 2000-2011.

Although The Kings University was experiencing amazing growth, going from a start-up branch campus to a main campus university with over 500 students, Shawn and Tanja made a life move in 2016 by leaving everything in Texas to oversee Ignite Europe full-time from Zurich, Switzerland where they now live.

BODY + BREATH is an Ignite Europe leadership initiative. Our goal is to equip church pastors and staff with principles for Spirit-filled leadership. Each masterclass or seminar focuses on a specific topic aimed at the practical (body) side of ministry or the supernatural (breath). Sessions are taught by the Ignite Europe team and visiting leaders and experts. Attendees will get Spirit-led, practical applications of the subject matter and will receive prayer for the Holy Spirit’s breath on their lives and leadership at each seminar. We believe leaders need both the anointing and the practical wisdom to fully carry out the call of God on their lives, ministries, and callings.
