Ignite Student Ministries
Ignite Students Ministries exists to equip and empower our students to Ignite a City and Change the World through worship, discipleship, relationship and mission.
Acts 2:44-47 “All the believers were together and had everything in common. Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily, those who were being saved."
Our worship experience for Ignite Student Ministries happens every Wednesday night at 7pm. This is where we corporately lift up the name of Jesus and offer junior high, high school, and college students an opportunity to encounter God. You can expect excellent worship and a relevant message at every single service that we have. We believe strongly in presenting a creative, exciting, and life impacting service each week.
Acts 5:42 “Day after Day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.”
Our Small Group ministry is the main ingredient of our ministry. These groups meet at the church. Our goal is to have every single student and young adult participating in small groups, because life is meant to be lived together in true community.
Small groups meet on the last Wednesday of the month and will normally last for about an hour and a half. This time will consist of conversation, where people can truly connect with each other and the leaders, as well as an in-depth discipleship time where everyone can take a moment to really dig into the Word of God. There is sermon based curriculum given to every small group that is derived from our weekly sermons and messages preached in our current series.
Message from the Student Pastor
"I hope that this page gives you a great look into our student ministry and all that God is doing here in Bristol. Our ministry is simple… we love God, we love life, and we love people. We are all about seeing students discipled in God’s Word, empowered to preach the Gospel in every sphere of life, and given opportunity to use their gifts and talents inside and outside the church. If you’re a part of our ministry then you already know that we value worship, prayer, and the sound preaching of God’s Word; but if you’re new here, you can expect to experience those things at every one of our Ignite worship services. You can see more information pertaining to our student ministry below. We look forward to seeing you at Ignite!"

Maximum Impact Children's Ministry
It is our desire to teach young children who God is and how to live a life devoted to Him by establishing biblical principles and truths into their hearts that will last forever.
Kids are engaged in worship through dynamic songs, stories, games, and teachings at their appropriate learning level. Praise songs are upbeat, full of actions and rhythm. Worship songs encourage kids to reflect and respond to the grace, mercy, and love of God. Stories are sourced from the Word of God to relate biblical truths applicable to the personal lives of the students. Kids love games! Correlating games add an element of fun to the lesson. Activities, videos, games, demonstrations, and experiments aid teachers in planting the seed of God’s Word into the hearts of the children. Lessons are energetic, relevant, and stimulating!
Twice a year, usually near the Easter and Halloween holidays, our church rallies together to reach the children in our community with the gospel of Christ. We offer family-centered fun activities for the day such as bouncy houses, face painting, food, giveaways, games, and much more!
Throughout the year children have the opportunity to build their faith by participating in exciting, fun-filled retreats, camps, and conferences. Some of these events include the Boys and Girls Bash, Church of God Summer Camps, and Kids Fest. These off-site events allow kids to have a personal encounter with their Savior and grow spiritually.
Message from Children’s Pastor
The Lord has placed a love in my heart for kids. I want to see children “Max’d Out” for Christ. It is my desire to instill into your children a passion to be “Max’d Out” in Bible reading, prayer, soul winning, worship, and devotion to God in order to accomplish all they can for His kingdom!
