Ignite Student Ministries

Shaping our youth for the church God calls us to in His Word.

Matthew 28:16-20

“Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Outreach

We take students on “fishing trips” giving them opportunities while under our leadership to “Fish for Men”.  These fishing trips go from local to across the world.

Missions Trips

We have a three-year rotation when it comes to our missions trips. We attend Lead The Cause, a summer intensive, that focuses primarily on training students to be disciples and how to share the gospel. Our Domestic trip provides focus on diverse elements of our American culture and the grand finale is our international mission trip.

We have added a Jr. High missions trip called "Harvest Impact" for our middle schoolers that offers training and more responsibility in association with our VBS program. This is a great first step for students to get their feet wet without leaving home.

Ignite’s Events

These are student planned and executed events that rely heavely on their personal invitations through their circle of friends and peer groups.

School Outreach Bible Studies

We plan to partner with students and ministries to pray for one or two schools this year. Our goal is to have an active group by the winter semester.

Other Opportunities

Our passion and prayer is to ignite our leadership and outreach teams to seek God's direction for more outreach opportunities. Let's dream up some BIG ideas that honor God and inspire our families to engage in our forward vision. 

Reproduce

Multiply

Go and bear fruit! We want our disciples to make disciples. We expect students to reproduce themselves through discipleship, leadership training, fully leading ministries and/or starting new ones. 

Discipleship

Parents, youth leaders, and other students disciple all our students for them to reproduce disciples in someone else.

Student Lead Ministry

We encourage, support, and sometimes fund students who want to lead or start ministries.

Hosting Conferences

With Dare2Share Live! and Ignite Student Leadership Conference we are utilizing our facilities to expand our discipleship beyond our own church.
