Youth ministry at IPC exists to join in God’s welcome of all people, to cultivate environments for growing in the love of God, and to serve one another and the world. Our ministry, for students 7th to 12th grade, is about building relationships, meeting youth where they are in their lives, and, most of all, growing together as we grow in our relationships with Jesus Christ.
