Young Adult Ministries
My name is Valerie McDonough and it's an honor to lead Ignite.
I am passionate about developing and challenging our youth. We, as a youth group, are focused on empowering teens to walk boldly with Christ through Jesus-centered lessons, Bible life application, worship and a united support system. We offer dynamic teachings, sermon series, student-involvement, games and monthly activities together.
I enjoy spending time with my family, some of which are scattered throughout the eastern United States. I am passionate about serving our community, advocating for those in need, ranging from Guardian Ad Litem to responsible pet ownership, and promtoing the sanctity of life for the living and unborn. I spend my free time trying new recipes in the kitchen, walking my pups and spending time with Ignite. I am blessed to be married to Mark, a firefighter for our county and the leader of our home.
