Then the Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man’s nostrils, and the man became a living person. —Genesis 2:7

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 hosted 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, where he served until 2004.

After thirty years of hosting stadium events for youth, Ron has refocused his energy on equipping pastors to reach their communities with exponential church growth through strategic discipleship. Ron 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 more than thirty books. He has a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Theology from Oral Roberts University, a master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tulsa, and earned his Doctorate of Strategic Foresight from Fuller University.

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.

“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


Ron will be teaching from his latest book, Faith at the Speed of Light. Here’s how church leaders around the world have been impacted with this curriculum:

“Ron Luce is a general of Faith who has researched extensively the importance of raising and reaching the emerging generations. Ron has incredible knowledge of the emerging generation and has done much research on this vital area, but more importantly, Ron is a practitioner who literally has touched millions of young people all over the world. I totally recommend this book. It is essential that the church understand the times that we live in and how to reach generations for Christ. It’s a must read for every leader.” RUSSEL EVANS, Planetshakers

“We do not need to mourn for tomorrow today, while the power to change tomorrow is in our hands today. Many Christians are concerned about the future of Christianity. Indeed, some contemporary statistics, even as highlighted by Ron Luce in this book, Faith at the Speed of Light, are quite alarming. The good news, however, is that Dr. Luce provides us the opportunity to use new models of exponential impact, which could shape your own ministry strategy to help reverse the situation for the better. I consider this book as the prophetic voice from the Lord, addressing the contemporary challenges of the church for a better future.” OPOKU ONYINAH, The Church of Pentecost, worldwide

“Ron Luce takes you on a mind-bending trip in describing how the speed of change interfaces with the need for spiritual leadership to impact the next generation. I highly recommend Faith at the Speed of Light!” DR. GEORGE O. WOOD, World AG Fellowship

“Our world is changing quickly, and as pastors and ministry leaders, we must ask ourselves how these changes will impact our churches as well as the next generation. That’s why my friend Ron Luce’s new book, Faith at the Speed of Light, is such an important book to read. In it, he shares what we can all do to be prepared and how we can leverage technology to reach more people with the gospel message of Jesus Christ.” ROBERT MORRIS, Gateway Church

“Ron Luce’s book Faith at the Speed of Light is one of the most shocking wake up calls I have ever read. Although I am a writer and avid reader, having read many books, I do not always read a book to the finish. But this riveting book gripped me so completely that I could not stop reading until the final page. The information in these pages shook me. Ron Luce intelligently and passionately describes where we have been, where we are at the moment, and where we’re headed as the Church — and he provides solid recommendations about what we need to do to have a successful future in a world that is changing at the speed of light.

One thing is sure: Those who ignore the facts are in trouble, but those who are willing to embrace the future will survive and thrive. So do you want your life, your church, your business, or your ministry organization to be a dinosaur that petrifies and disappears in the recesses of history — or do you pray to thrive in a changing world that is smacking us in the face even now? What you read in Faith at the Speed of Light and how you respond to it may be the deciding factor. Buy it, read it, and make the appropriate changes that you’re awakened to make for yourself, your church, your business, or your ministry organization. There is only one choice if you wish to thrive in the days ahead.” RICK RENNER, Rick Renner Ministries and Moscow Good News Church
