Our middle school & high school youth ministry, Igniting God’s Youth, has a three-fold purpose:

  1. First, disciple young believers. Our primary focus is grounding youth in the Word and helping them grow in their relationship with Christ.
  2. Second, reach the lost. We want our youth to have a place where they can bring their unsaved friends so that they can hear the gospel and see the gospel lived out around them.
  3. Third, provide a safe and encouraging environment where youth can fellowship with each other, develop Christ-centered friendships, and learn to serve one another.

A typical meeting will start with a short time of games followed by worship, a biblical message and then small groups.

At different points throughout the year, we have outreach nights like Crazy Clothes night, Pizza night, Glow Night, or Chocolate Fest. These events provide an avenue for the youth to invite their friends to hear the gospel and see the love of Christ lived out.

IGY meets on Wednesday nights from 7-9pm.

IGY also puts on an annual summer camp, the highlight of the year for many youth. Click here to learn more about it!

We also have Bible Quizzing — a super fun competition/sport in which students memorize and compete together, quoting and answering questions on scripture. Click here to learn more about Bible Quizzing!
