IGNITE Student Ministry

We exist to challenge students to live a Jesus-centered life as they navigate through middle and high school.

Here at Bradfordville, our mission statement is “making disciples, who love upward, inward, and outward.” To accomplish this mission, there are 7 principles that are foundational to seeing our mission lived out in our communities and schools.

  1. Faith on Fire
  2. Spiritual Disciplines
  3. Putting Others First
  4. Making Wise Choices
  5. Having and Maintaining Moral Boundaries
  6. Importance of Healthy Friendships
  7. Ultimate Authority

Weekly Activities

Sunday Morning Groups

9:15 am
On Sunday mornings, all our students meet together in Room #304, on the third floor of the education wing for a light breakfast, announcements, prayer, and an opening segment to the lesson for that day. After that, we break up into small groups based on grade and gender, for more discussion of the lesson with their peers and adult leaders. After small groups, students are encouraged to join us for worship at the 10:30 service.

Wednesday Nights

6:00 pm
IGNITE meets at the Mac Shack, which is located on our South Campus. The IGNITE Student led worship team leads us in worship, which is followed by a teaching time with Pastor Tom and our leadership team. Don’t have your IGNITE gear, be sure to stop by the merchandise table on Wednesday nights, and pick up your gear to represent at school.

MFUGE Summer Camp

Camp Dates: June 25th – 30th, 2018

In 2018, our IGNITE Student Ministry will be heading to Mobile, AL for our summer camp. MFUGE is designed to combine an opportunity for our students to have a camp-like experience as well as provide a mission experience that opens their eyes to similar opportunities they may have to serve in their own communities, learning to live every day life on mission! During the day your students will be challenged and stretched as individuals; in the evenings, you’ll have an opportunity to build group unity over dinner, worship, fellowship and church group devotions.

Online registration for MFUGE Summer Camp will be in early 2018, so be on the lookout for early registration incentives.


Send South Florida 2018 (Church-wide Mission Trip)

Save the Date –  July 15th – 20th, 2018

Bradfordville is headed to South Florida in 2018. Children, students, and adults will have plenty of opportunities to serve and lead out and sharing the gospel to many who do not know Christ.  Details about the projects are still being worked out, but the dates have been set, so plan accordingly and come join many on mission!



IGNITE Student Ministry can’t happen without the adults that give of their time and resources to make it happen. We are very grateful for our many volunteers and are always looking to add more to our great team.
