OUR DISTINCTIVE VALUES
We are committed to knowing God, Worshiping God, and being led by God.
We are committed to embracing the gospel, applying the gospel and proclaiming the gospel.
We are committed to embracing God’s mission, understanding what the mission demands of us and living as missional ambassadors.
We are committed to seeing people trust Christ, obey Christ and imitate Christ.
AS WE EMBRACE THESE FOUR CORE VALUES, THE FOLLOWING FIVE PRACTICES BECOME THE OUTCOMES OF OUR MATURING FAITH:
INTIMACY WITH GOD
Detailed knowledge and understanding of God's heart and activity that comes from pursuing Him as our greatest treasure.
Discovering and fulfilling our God given purposes in the church and in our community.
FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
The acting presence of the Holy Spirit in the life of the Church that demonstrates the character of God and distinguishes His people from an unbelieving world.
Embracing the fullness of the Gospel and being transformed by it in such a way that we desire to live out and share God's message with others.
STEWARDSHIP OF LIFE
Faithfully using everything God has entrusted to us to reflect His glory.
STEPHEN JOHNSON / DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Stephen has been serving as the Director of Operations for Ignite since June 2014. Prior to serving in this role, he had the unique opportunity to intern at Summit Church as well as work in the business world. Today, he is grateful that God has continued to show him favor by allowing him to reach college students as a permanent fixture of the Summit/Ignite team.
He attended college right here at FGCU, graduating with a finance degree in 2015. But that certainly wasn't the best part of college! During his time in school, he met and married his wife, Ashley. Not long after their wedding, they welcomed a dog into their home - Yankee the golden doodle.
Stephen's great desire is to see God's Name made famous amongst college students at FGCU, and he firmly believes God will use Ignite's students to accomplish that mission!
