Ignite Student Ministries

…. a place where God sets young people's hearts on fire and invites them to go out and light the hearts of others. 


Our student ministry meets the youth of Decatur where they are, inviting them to experience the love and power of God wherever and whenever we meet. From Sunday night programming to retreats, outings, and service projects, our ministry intentionally instills in our youth that they are called, ready, and equipped to make a difference for the Kingdom of God, no matter their age or where they come from. We believe that our students are just as much the present church as they are the future church, and so we set out to encourage them in the love and presence of Jesus Christ and who He’s empowered them to be right now


“So now you are no longer strangers and wanderers. Rather, you are fellow citizens with God’s people, and you belong to God’s household. As God’s household, you are built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. The whole building is joined together in him, and it grows up into a temple that is dedicated to the Lord.”

Ephesians 2:19-21

    WHATStudents gather together on Sunday nights for fun, fellowship, and faith formation. We typically begin our nights with fellowship time in the cafe and game area. Students will then hear a lesson from our Youth Minister and participate in discussions geared towards applying the message to their own personal experiences. Sunday Youth Group is a fun time for students to connect with one another, be challenged and encouraged, and discover God’s movement in their own life. Throughout the year, we also have hangout time off church property, go on retreats, and participate in service projects together, so be sure to check out our calendar below to stay updated on all upcoming activities and events
