Ignite Marriage Ministry


The Ignite Marriage Ministry at Apex Baptist exists to awaken every generation of married couples to impact their world for Christ. The main way we look to encourage and equip married couples is through, The Pathway.” We desire married couples of all ages to WORSHIP, CONNECT, SERVE, and GROW!  


WORSHIP - through corporate gatherings, as well as through their attitudes and actions.

CONNECT - through our sermon-based Life Groups where people study God’s Word and live life together.

SERVE - through ministry and missions. 

GROW - through strategic replicable Disciple-making Groups (D-Groups).

We also have what we call “Onramps,” which include:

Amplify - The Ignite marriage ministry provides 6-8 week studies on Wednesday nights as part of our Amplify Adult Bible Studies. These studies are available each Fall and Spring and cover a variety of topics related to marriage. 

Ignite Dinner Banquet – Each spring couples gather together for a special dinner date at the church with fantastic food, fellowship, and a dynamic guest speaker. Childcare is provided for a night of fun and recharging.

Marriage Conference – Each fall our married couples gather for worship, a dynamic guest speaker, and time to connect with couples in Christ. 

Date Night – Are you still dating your spouse? Date night is for couples that attend Apex Baptist Church regularly with children aged Newborn – 12 years. It is $25 per couple and each couple will earn eight dates with their spouse by serving two nights. Date nights which will be held on a Friday night once a month from August to May.

The hours of date night are from 6pm to 10pm. The location of Date Night is at the Downtown Campus. The doors of the church will be locked for safety purposes, and children will not be permitted after 6:30pm to avoid disrupting the class time. Benefits to Parents:

  • Strengthen your marriage by dating again like you used to do before you had children. 
  • Save money on childcare – With this program you’ll get 8 evenings of childcare for less than the amount you’d pay a babysitter for one night. 
  • Worry-free childcare – Your children will be in good hands with organized, Christ-centered activities. 
  • Because this is a co-op program, you are helping other couples have the opportunity to date as well. 

Action packed for the kids. They will enjoy the evening as much as you do.

We would love to help you in your spiritual journey! If we can help you to take you next step in The Pathway or you have more questions about any of our Onramp events, please let us know!
