Ignite Students Ministry

Ignite Student Ministries is the student ministry at Holly Spring Baptist Church in Franklin, NC. For students in Grades 5th-12th, we offer Large Group and Small Group activities that help students grow in a closer relationship with God and each other. It is our desire that students own their faith by the time they leave the Ignite Student Ministry. This is accomplished by providing opportunities for them to grow and for them to put their faith in action. Click here to view our Ignite Student Ministry Brochure.

All leaders are background checked, trained, and approved by our Youth Pastor, Pete Rodewald.

Middle School and High School students gather to connect with God.


This is a high energy mix of fun games, worship, and Small Group teaching. XP3 Curriculum helps students to see God for who He is, to see themselves the way God sees them, and to love others the way He loves us. When topics need to be age appropriate, Middle School and High School will meet in separate areas.


We also have an array of games (foosball, ping pong, air hockey, pool, Xbox, PS3, Wii) to play or just hang out in the couch area with friends.

Service Projects

“And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.” Mark 16:15


Ignite Students gather together one Saturday/Sunday Night every quarter to serve others. Service Projects include serving at local charities, meeting the needs of our Homebound Seniors, and more. Students are encouraged to get their hands and feet dirty as they express God’s love for others.



Summer 2023

- Parent Meeting on May 24th (Ignite Youth Room)

- Camp Realife (6:00 - 6:30)

- T.B.D. Mission Trip (6:30 - 7:00)

Summer time is a great time for students to grow closer to God through camp and mission trip experiences. At HSBC, we believe in making these experiences happen for our students. In June each year, we take students to Camp Realife (Marianna, FL). Then, in July, we head out of town to a specified location for a week-long mission trip (this year: T.B.D.). There are costs associated with these experiences, but we do our best to provide opportunities through fundraising and generous church sponsors to help offset some of those costs.
