Justin has the honor of overseeing Student Ministries at Ivanrest Church. He works closely with middle and high school students but leads a team of passionate staff members who works with nursery through sixth grade children. They spend time working together to make all of Children’s and Student’s Ministries at Ivanrest the best they can be. He spends time encouraging students to walk closer with Christ each and every day by building personal relationships with them. He strives to involve adults who love kids to walk alongside of them through life. He plans events that engage students with Christ and other adults who care and love them. His greatest joy in life is seeing students encounter the grace filled Jesus Christ in a personal way in their life. If  you want to talk all things “Youth Ministry” he’s the one to talk to.
