Students are important at Ivanrest Church. That is why we have created safe and fun places for students to grow in faith, stature and wisdom. We want to see each student make a commitment to Christ in his or her life. We value Christ centered relationships creating strong inter-generational aspects to all of our ministries. We take adults who want to see students grow in their faith, and place them in roles that are critical to fostering a healthy relationship. At iconnect we share a snack, large group activities, worship and life changing messages.
