Ignition is a fun, safe, and welcoming environment where high school students (grades 9-12) can explore the Bible, ask challenging questions about life, meet new friends, and find new life in Jesus Christ. New students are always welcome!

Students will meet weekly on Wednesday nights during the school year from 7:30-9:30 pm. For an overview of the night, see below!

  • 7:30-7:40 pm: Ignition Kickoff
    The fun starts with ice breakers, games with prizes, and an overview of the night!
  • 7:40-8:15 pm: Breakout Sessions
    Students have the option of several breakout stations including activities like games, creative arts, mission projects and time to hang out with friends!
  • 8:15-9:00 pm: Ignition Gathering
    During our Gathering, students sing songs lead by the Student Worship team and hear messages.
  • 9:00-9:30 pm: Life Groups
    We end the night with Life Groups, where students grow deeper in their faith and relationships with peers and leaders, discuss the message, and go through their highs and lows from the week.

If you are unable to attend in person, we invite you to livestream the Ignition Gathering starting at 8:15 pm. You can access it at HopeOnline.TV
