Ignite Student Ministries

A fun, safe place for your students to make life-long friends and learn about God.

Ignite Student Ministries is for all youth, grades 6-12. Our mission is to create a passionate, authentic, and welcoming community where students can seek, learn and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. It is also a place where students can develop genuine friendships with one another. As a ministry we are passionate about encountering the power and presence of Jesus Christ. We strive to demonstrate and lead students to view their relationship with Jesus not just as an emotional experience, but as a personal encounter. We are passionate about helping students discover their God-given gifts and calling, and to equip them to use them to glorify Him. We are passionate about creating a community of connection, where students are connected to students, leaders and the greater church.

We are passionate about partnering with our local church by functioning as one part of the whole body, and partnering with our parents to support, encourage and serve the families of Grace Community Church. And last but certainly not least, we are passionate about having fun! We believe that the church should be the most joyful environment, and we make having fun a priority!
