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.

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.
