About our Youth Pastors

Andrew Miller – Ignite Youth Pastor

Pastor Andrew Miller had the privilege of growing up in a Christian home, and has attended Tri-City Baptist Church his entire life. He accepted God’s free gift of salvation after a memorial service that focused on the gospel when he was five years old. He recognized that he was a sinner, and that night he trusted in Jesus Christ alone to save him from his sin so that he could be with God forever in heaven.
He attended Tri-City Christian Academy from K5-12th grade, and the summer after he graduated, he had the opportunity to travel to 7 different countries on missions trips including Kenya, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong, The Philippines, and Mexico. God used these missions trips to strengthen his desire to serve in full-time ministry. He received his bachelor’s degree in Bible and Business Leadership from International Baptist College and Seminary (IBCS) in 2022 and is now pursuing a Master of Divinity through IBCS. He has also served as the Junior Camp Speaker at Ironwood Christian Camp for the past two summers and will return in 2023. On May 21, 2022, he married the love of his life, Kacey. He and his wife enjoy sports, playing board games, and outdoor activities.

Robert Dominguez – Tri-City Christian Academy Youth Pastor

Pastor Robert Dominguez was born in Fairfield, California. He grew up in a Christian home and listened to the Gospel preached every week. At age 6, he heard a message preached from the pulpit about God’s saving grace and man’s sin. He spoke with his parents about the gospel and what it truly means to place his faith in Christ. He understood that he was a sinner in need of a Savior and he accepted

Christ as his Lord and Savior that night. Throughout Robert’s high school years, he would come to a better understanding of who God is and what it truly means to surrender to His Will. Robert felt the Lord was calling him to youth ministry during his senior year of high school.

Robert attended International Baptist College and Seminary and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a Pastoral Emphasis in 2020. The Lord has blessed him with a beautiful and God-honoring wife, Norma,  and their first child which is due in October 2022. Robert spent two years working in human resources at Amazon. He has also faithfully served as a youth leader in Ignite Youth Ministries at Tri-City Baptist Church since 2017. Robert is currently working toward a Master of Arts from IBCS.

Pastor Robert’s primary focus is the students in Tri-City Christian Academy and faithfully serves alongside of Pastor Andrew in Ignite.

About Ignite

Ignite, Tri-City’s youth ministry, is a place for teens to learn about God and grow to love Him, make friends, reach out, and have fun! Our focus is on spiritual growth and development of Christ-likeness, not just lots of activity. We are here to assist, not replace, the parents in their teen’s spiritual development. We do this through mentoring young people for ministry by discipling them to become spiritually mature servant-leaders who will fulfill the great commission at home and abroad.


Ignite seeks to glorify God by discipling teenagers, and assisting their parents in equipping them to be faithful servant-leaders, fulfilling the Great Commission at home and abroad. (Matthew 28:19-20)


Ignite exists to exalt the Triune God through lifestyle worship; Edify believers through correct doctrine, discipleship, fellowship, and unity; Evangelize the unsaved through prayer and the proclamation of the Gospel.
