OUR STUDENT MINISTRY…
The purpose of Ignite Student Ministries is to
help students and families follow Jesus together.
Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers (6th through 12th grade).
We have a blast following Jesus together! Whether it’s an Ugly Christmas Sweater/White Elephant party, 200’ Slip-N-Slides, Pumpkin Slam with catapults, or Winterfest on the ice at Lloyd Center and Lasertag…we enjoy being together!!! Weekly meetings include hang out time, worship, connect activities, small groups, outreach, service projects and more! Every week we enjoy connecting as a group, praying for each other, and being challenged to respond to God and what He teaches us through the Bible.
Wednesday evenings from 7:01–8:30pm. On alternating Sunday mornings at 10:15am we meet as Ignite to enjoy a light breakfast and then be inspired, equipped and supported from the Bible. On the other Sundays at 10:30am, we join the rest of our Faith Community in the auditorium to continue following Jesus together.
In addition, Ignite students serve both in Ignite and within our larger community on the worship team, greeting team, welcome and prayer teams, as well as, in our Children’s program. Come and serve Jesus along with us! You can find out more about our regular and special events on our Ignite Events calendar link below.
Four times a year at GPBC the children’s and student ministry programs are closed so all ages and stages of our faith family can join together to worship God as one large community. In ancient Jewish culture, all children and adults participated in seven annual festivals where they were able to enjoy the broader community while remembering and celebrating what God had done. We are all enriched, young and old, when we come together in one place. There is a little more noise, a little more movement and lots of opportunities to connect with God and one another. We hope you can join us for our next community worship service!
Family Prayer Nights
- August 28
- October 23
Wednesdays 7:00 – 8:30pm. All families are invited to come, worship and pray together!
At the GPBC Student Center.
Our mission is to inspire, equip and support students and their families to follow Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit for all their lives. Our intention is to constantly seek to become “living lights” individually and together as our Ignite theme verse says:
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
We choose to intentionally follow Jesus, to listen for the Holy Spirit’s leading to our place in His Big Story, and to respond to God together.
