Youth Ministries

Student Ministries at Ivanrest is designed to encourage students to encounter the living presence of Jesus. We utilize relationships between fellow students and adults to build a strong community at Ivanrest. Building community is based upon worship times together, strong Biblical teachings and activities that promote growth with each other. Both middle school and high school students will always have adults who care for them and want to share God’s love to them. Ivanrest Student Ministries would not exist without these leaders who care deeply for each student that walks through the doors. Each student will feel a sense of belonging and joy as they encounter God at irally and iConnect meetings throughout the year.


This is a fast‐paced, energy‐filled and explosive program that connects with junior high students in grades 7‐8. We desire to see our teens love the Lord, get excited about the church and do it in a fun way through large group gathering, retreats and service projects.
