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, IGNITE students meet together in room 304, located on the third floor of the education wing, for a time of fellowship, 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 small group leaders. After small groups, students are encouraged to join us for worship at the 10:30 service.

Wednesday Nights

6:00 pm
On Wednesday nights, we have our midweek IGNITE service which meets on the third floor of the education wing. Each week we have a time of worship led by the IGNITE worship band and small groups for all our students. Our Bible Study and small group time, usually involve one of the 7 core principles of our IGNITE Student Ministry. From time to time, we also have guest speakers who will come and share their journey and encourage our students in their walk with Christ. Things get started at 6pm, so come a few minutes early…see you this Wednesday!

Future Events

MFUGE Summer Camp

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.

Cost: $380
