Pastor Rob Barringer, and his wife, Rebecca, are the founders of IGNITE Church. They were married in 1996 and have been in ministry together since 1997. Ten of those years were spent in the Reeds Spring area. In 2018, the Barringer family left the area to minister in a new place, but God continued to burden their hearts for the people of Stone County. After much prayer and discernment, Rob and Rebecca have returned to start a new thing with Ignite Church. They will reside in the area with their daughter, Riley. They also have a grown son, Sam, who resides in Springfield. In short, this community is their home and their desire is for Ignite to minister to and serve this community in ways that only God can do!
