Ignition Seven is a revolutionary concept for a few reasons: there is nothing out there like it, and it emerged out of a God-inspired moment in the heart of a pastor. Through the creative excellence of the Ignition Seven videos, book, and resources, we can finally tell those who encounter God that they do not have to go home alone. What an incredible tool for student and college ministries pastors, parachurch organizations, churches, and anyone out there who wins people to Christ!

Now more than ever, we need bold leaders willing to invest in our students. John Driver represents more than just another author or youth communicator—he is leading a movement. Anyone in leadership will benefit from John’s book, Letters to the Other John—a disarmingly honest view from inside a youth ministry: success, failure, and everything in between.

It’s great to learn from your mistakes, but even better to learn from the mistakes (and successes) of others. Pastor John Driver is an extraordinary communicator, and opens his vault of experience from over a decade of ministry to students in this new book. Any future or current leader would be encouraged and challenged by it.

As pastors, youth pastors, teachers, leaders, and friends, how many times have we seen it? Someone is transformed by the power of God’s Spirit, totally free for the first time in their life! And then, as they stumble through the first turn, into a total crash and burn, we wonder, “What could have gone wrong”? Could it be that they were left to go it alone during this most critical phase- the first seven days as a new Christian?

What if we could go home with them for those first few days? This is the concept behind John Driver’s new project, Ignition Seven—a discipleship tool of seven powerful videos and a book— designed to infuse direct Christian leadership and influence into the life of new believers during the first week of their walk with Christ. Ignition Seven is a game changer; one of the most powerful, innovative, must-have, don’t-wait-any-longer, whole-new-way-to-do-ministry tools ever conceived.

Ignition Seven is more than youth ministry. It’s the Great Commission in action. As the father of teenagers, I’m so excited to see a program that effectively disciples new converts using simple, direct steps to help ground them in their relationship with Christ. Young adults are abandoning their faith at alarming rates. Ignition Seven is a timely and relevant response with the potential to reverse this trend. I’m proud to bring these quality videos into the homes of our viewers.

I like John Driver.

Everyone talks about relationships, leadership, and discipleship, but it’s rare to come across someone with the experience, knowledge, and heart to actually build all of these ingredients into the DNA of a ministry. John Driver accomplishes all of this with humility.

You can see the fruit of his ministry in the band Skyhook. John pastored, mentored, developed, and still leads this ministry out of their home church. I have watched this group that grew up in his youth ministry develop into a band truly purposed to serve. This only comes from the heart transplant of a leader like John.

John has too many talents: writer, video-producer, discipleship curriculum developer, not to mention speaker, leader, organizer, and family man role model. His life experiences, communication ability, and insight for youth leaders combine into a powerful voice helping others navigate the often difficult life of someone determined to help students follow Jesus.

His heart behind Ignition Seven speaks to the frustrations of most youth leaders and provides a much-needed starting point to helping students begin the journey of becoming like Jesus. Everyone in student ministry should absorb the message in Letters to the Other John. Only a veteran with a solid foundation to build on, a continued drive to make disciples, and a love of leaders and students produces these types of resources.

I like John Driver.

For the last 12 years I have been amazed by the work and ministry of John Driver. Whether his role was Educator, Leader, Pastor, Author, Songwriter or sitting in a creative director’s chair… I have yet to experience anything that was less than excellent or superb. He is a real deal, can’t miss, number one pick.
