“Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”

1 Timothy 4:12, ESV

Ignite Mission

To engage the next generation in living the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Ignite Ministry


We have an active, vibrant teen ministry at Immanuel for 6th-12th grade students who meet every Friday 6:30-8:30pm.


We offer two different settings to grow in;
IGNITE focuses on fellowship, dynamic group games, and small group discussions.
CONNECT meets on the alternate Fridays and focuses on small group fellowship to dig deeper in our teen Bible study. (of course, there are also group games!)


We believe the Gospel is the only source of truth that empowers our youth, giving them confidence and hope for the future. We want them to take hold of their own faith and learn how to live that faith out in their homes, schools, and communities.
Our goal is to challenge our teens to connect Bible knowledge and principles to their lives and struggles, and ultimately become leaders through biblical discipleship.

Trust & Security

Our team of trained leaders undergo background checks and are screened and trained before they are approved to serve.

Opportunities to Make a Difference

  • Each month on the 3rd Saturday we team up with Street Soldiers in serving the Rensselaer area providing food items, basic staples, and clothing to our less fortunate friends and neighbors.
  • 2023 Youth Mission Trip! Our youth mission trips are designed to change lives, and deepen the faith of every student involved.
  • We are joining World Changers serving in the Chesapeake Virginia area. Our 2023 mission dates are 7/9-7/16. Limited spots available.
  • We believe it is important for our students to engage in serving the local church so they grow in their faith and take responsibility in their faith family.
