Student Ministry at Freedom Baptist

At Freedom our teenagers (7th-12th grade) experience biblically challenging and engaging lessons on Sunday nights at 6pm and enjoy a Life Group on Thursday nights at 630 with one of our youth leaders, James Grace. They also take part in activities throughout the year meant to bring them closer to the Lord and each other.

A Typical iGnite Gathering

Here's what to expect when visiting iGnite for the first time:


iGnite meets in our education building (it's the little one) in our teen room on the back left. We typically begin the night with a game that allows for laughter and fun for all. After the game we transition into our fellowship and lesson time.


Lesson's are biblically based and intended to bring the students to a better understanding of who Jesus is and what the Bible says about situations they face day to day. At the end of the night each student is challenged to make a decision to submit more to Jesus and the teachings of the Bible in the area of life covered that evening.

What to expect at a Teen Life Group

Teen Life groups have two purposes: 1. Grow closer to God through small group Bible Study 2. Grow closer to one another in a Christian environment.


These goals are accomplished through a 30 minute Bible study and discussion led by James Grace and by allowing them to have the rest of the time to play Xbox, shoot basketball, and enjoy other games that allow them to laugh and have fun.

Meet our Youth Pastor

Bro. Dustin moved to Yuma in 2011 as an air traffic controller with the Marine Corps. In 2013 God called Bro. Dustin to the ministry and in 2015 God made it possible for Pastor Matheny to bring him on as an Assistant Pastor.


Bro. Dustin is married to his high school sweetheart Mrs. Sarah Alley. They have 3 children Evan, Ethan, and Katelyn. Both Bro. Dustin and Mrs. Sarah are actively involved in the youth ministries of Freedom, discipling young people into godly young men and women living for His glory.
