the Team


Say hello to our Ignition633 Nigeria family! Each team member has a unique story of how God called them to this ministy and gave them a love for the Nigerian people.

Josh Martin

I believed for a while that the Lord was calling me into something special, but I never quite knew what that was. About 3 years ago I heard the call that my wife, Shannon and I would be going to Germany to be a part of a work ignition633 had yet to start. I never thought I would be going to Nigeria, but then about a year and a half ago the Lord spoke so clearly to me that Shannon and I would be moving there for a time. So with that we embarked on our first missions trip in April of 2019, and we both immediately fell in love with the people so much that we knew that God wanted us to be a part of what He was going to do there. I truly just want to follow His will and I believe His will is taking me to Nigeria.
