Ignite Student Ministries
A fun, safe place for our 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’re passionate about helping students discover their God-given gifts and calling, and to equip them to use them to glorify Him. We’re passionate about creating a community of connection, where students are connected to students, leaders and the greater church.
We’re 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’re passionate about having fun! We believe that the church should be the most joyful environment, and we make having fun a priority!

Summer Programs | Camps | Mission Trips
Ignite Student Ministries offers fun and enriching summertime events for middle and high school students. Check back for 2019 summer schedule!
Garden city beach camp is designed for students to help them grow closer in their relationship with God through: Worship; Bible Studies; Devotionals; Friendships; Mentoring; and Fun! This trip is for any student that is currently in 6th through 12th grade. We have fantastic chaperones and interns that lead small groups, prepare meals, and help keep everyone safe. This will be the best week of the year, and possibly the life, for those that come with us to beach camp. Lives will be changed forever!!!
This summer we are going on our yearly mission trip to help with hurricane relief in Wilmington, NC. This is a trip for any student that has completed the 6th grade and is actively involved with the youth ministry. On the trip we will have worship, games, Construction Projects, Vacation Bible School, and loads of fun! This year it is our goal to make the mission trip more than just a one week experience, rather we want it to have a lasting impact on each person that goes on the trip. To help make this happen we are requiring all participants to be actively involved in the youth ministry at Grace; each participant must have a meeting with the youth pastor and youth leadership team; lastly, all participants must participate in the training events prior to the trip.
