After serving a large local Durham NC church for 12-1/2 years as Care Pastor, our founder, Leah Rade, bothered that people unconnected with local churches were unable to access Christ-centered support, left the comfort of the local church and launched Ignite C3 Ministries in 2016.
Also, recognizing that the average church is under-resourced in pastoral care and support, Ignite C3 exists to support local church pastors in equipping their congregation by providing Christ-centered care in times of crisis or need. Leah is a certified Prepare/Enrich trainer, is a certified SYMBIS counselor, is a Certified Behavioral Life Coach & recently completed a 2-1/2 year journey in fulfilling her dream to become a Certified Professional Life Coach through Professional Christian Coaching Institute. She is also a licensed minister of the Gospel.
Prior to answering the call into full-time ministry, Leah served as Program Director for the Museum of Life and Science. She brings nine years of summer camp experience, and a heart for kids to Ignite C3!
