New Year, Same Mission
We are over a month into 2017 and that means Ignition Student Ministry is in full swing. The band is back together, the Waterwheel Café is pumping out smoothies, and the JCMC is overrun by 80+ students each Wednesday night. Small groups have been reunited, friends are bringing friends, and the Gospel is being preached. Yes, my friends, Ignition is back…
But with all the constants, there are new and exciting things happening as well. There’s growth. We are seeing students move forward in their faith. They’ve come back in 2017 hungry for the Word of God, hungry for accountability, and hungry for answers. Already, three students have given their lives to Christ for the first time, two have committed to baptism this month, and two have rededicated their lives to Christ. It’s almost as if we serve a powerful God who works no matter what year it is… no matter what month it is… no matter how busy people are…
We have introduced a new logo into the student ministry. The “FTF” you’ll begin seeing everywhere stands for “Fan the Flame,” and is designed to draw students’ attention to 2 Timothy 1:6-7 which says, “For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God … for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” Our Ignition students are on fire for Christ, but it doesn’t stop there. We are working with them to fan that flame into a raging inferno that spreads to their families, friends, and communities.
Thank you so much for your support over the last nine months! Autumn, the kids, and I have been so blessed to be part of Switzerland Community Church. We truly feel home. And thank you so much for your support of Ignition Student Ministry. God is moving in a powerful way in the lives of our teenagers and their families.
In Christ and with love,
