Ignite Ministry opens their doors for displaced refugee youth living in the US.  Our ministry offers them a safe place to learn about God’s love and to come into relationship with other refugee kids. The ministry seeks to positively impact this chosen generation of youth by sharing the gospel and seeking intentional community through unity in God’s love. 

  • Invite refugee youth to dynamic worship services & bible studies that use simple English.

  • Lead the youth to begin a relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • Disciple the youth through small groups, bible studies, fun events, adventure retreats and mission trips.

  • Train those who express interest as leaders & missionaries.

  • Share god's love through home visits with refugee families.

  • Equip this generation of leaders from the oppressed peoples of Burma by teaching the Bible and affirming God's giftings, callings, and mission upon each student's life.


Serving refugees in our community  is something Ignite feels very passionate about. Being an extension of Christ's hands and feet to the lives of this chosen generation is our greatest desire.  


Volunteering, giving & praying are all ways you can participate in God’s mission to provide hope to these displaced youth.  


Our supporters are like family.  We welcome you to join our family as we serve, pray, give, learn & celebrate together!
