To lead students into a growing and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ.

All students will develop a faith of their own that stays strong through their coming journey.

• We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is the only way by which man can be saved
• Developing personal faith will strengthen students for current and future trials
• Developing personal faith will move students to impact and influence the world around them

• Connect the world of students to the world view of Jesus
• Provide relevant, topical talks for students to chew on
• Create extraordinary small group environments led by exceptional leaders, allowing for life-giving discussions that lead to the self discovery of God’s truth and wisdom
• Cultivate deep relationships with students, allowing them to know they are loved and cared for.
• Develop outreach opportunities for students through local and nationwide missions, allowing them to grow in responsibility and leadership

Value Statements:
We are a community based on faith, love, unity, honesty, trust, and open communication.
We want to partner with parents and set the ball on a tee for them. Parents are the primary spiritual guides for the student.

Ignite  students have decided to connect with a child through Compassion International.  (Compassion International is a Christian child sponsorship organization dedicated to the long-term development of children living in poverty around the world.  For more information go to www.compassion.com). 
Ignite  will collect free-will offerings each Sunday during our worship time together.  This is not mandatory, but from the heart of each student.  This offering will provide the monthly $38.00 cost to sponsor our assigned child and to help others we can reach out to locally. 

Youth meet every           Sunday at         11:00 am! 


​Meet Hadija!  

Hadija is Ignite's Compassion International sponsored child.  

​She is 5 years old and lives in Tanzania.  

Ignite students are encouraged to share God's love with Hadija by sharing letters with her and to experience God's love through the letters she sends to us.


Becoming a Christian, or making a commitment to deepen your relationship with Jesus, is cause for a huge celebration. But, it also can be overwhelming as we seek to understand what happens next.

This lesson will help students recognize what has happened in their lives and how Jesus sees them. It also will help them embrace Jesus’ promises about being a new person whose life has purpose.

Sept. 10 - New Creations (Eph. 2:8-10)

As disciples of Christ we are called to be intercessors for one another.  Add a sticky note to the class Prayer Board so we can pray together and/or grab a sticky note and commit to personally pray for that person/thing throughout the week.  This allows us to actively trust God with our petitions and watch Him as He works to unfold His plans in our lives and the lives of others.

Ignite Worship: New Creations 

Thank you for taking an interest in further understanding the heartbeat of our ministry. We desire that students grow a faith that will serve as an anchor of stability as they move into adulthood. Furthermore, we desire to lead students into a secure identity of who they are in Christ. We believe that people ultimately live out of who they are, not what they are. Therefore, we strive to impress upon the students that God unconditionally loves them. And it is through that love that we are to love others.

On Saturday, September 23 2017 from 12:00pm to 7:30pm, Ignite will join other area teens at the closest location (TBA) for a one day confernce to bring Christ to their communities through service and gospel conversations, and spark a movement within youth ministry and within the Church at large.  THIS CONFERENCE IS FREE to all middle school AND high school students, but we do need to know if you are interested for registration purposes.  Please RSVP to Cathy ASAP!

We care about what you're thinking and would like to offer the opportunity for you to share those thoughts!
