Our Story

In July of 2010, Pastor Steve moved to Moorhead with his wife and kids with a calling on their lives to start a new church in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

Since that time, Ignite Church has moved from an apartment to a comedy club and now to the Safari Movie Theater. Here are a few notable moments in our history:

February 13, 2011 – First Sunday Service
Summer of 2011 – Launched Life Groups
Fall of 2011 – Began our partnership with Charity: Water
December of 2013 – Instituted an annual Giveback Sunday
Fall of 2015 – Launched Foundations Classes
February 14, 2016 – Celebrated our 5th Birthday
May of 2016 – Helped plant Grand City Station

Fall of 2018 - Planted Reconciliation Church located in Uman, Ukraine


The reason Ignite exists is to Encounter God and Impact the World. 

To us at Ignite, church is not a building but a group of people who are on God's agenda, not our own. It is our goal to introduce as many people as we can to the God of the Universe. He is the One who gives us hope, healing and purpose. We believe that once you meet God in a tangible way that it will impact the world in which you live.

We invite you to come check us out sometime; whether it be in a Life Group or a Sunday morning. Know that you are welcome at Ignite.
