"Called to Impact, Called to Change"
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and sound mind."- 1 Timothy 4:7
WHO WE ARE
Welcome to IYM! Impact Youth Ministry is a radical place for youth ages 12- 18 who are ready to answer the call to become people of influence for Christ! Our desire is to equip youth spiritually, emotionally and socially to live their lives to the fullest, so they know that they have the power to affect and change the world for the Kingdom of God right now!
Our ultimate goal is to point teenagers in the right direction toward Jesus, our Savior. To show them they were born with the potential to live an extraordinary life and to share that life with others. We believe that it is vitally important for teenagers to know how to appropriately handle God’s Word in their daily life. We exist to drive teenagers into a life-changing walk with Jesus Christ and in return they impact their world for God.
It’s all about HIM! Our youth ministers and mentors have the opportunity to instill moral values and lifestyle principles into teenagers that they can carry with them now and keep them well after graduating high school. Throughout the year, our youth are involved in activities and community service projects that bring as a constant reminder that our lives begin and end with God.
WHAT WE DO
We provide a safe and positive environment for youth to come and express themselves through the love of God every Wednesday at 6:15pm in the Main Sanctuary. During this time, we have radical praise and worship, games and the youth learn about the uncompromising Word of God through tangible activities, and life changing experiences. Annually, we travel to teen conferences, take fun-filled fieldtrips, host movie nights, lock-ins and community outreaches geared toward teenagers and so much more!
The Impact Youth never stop moving! As IYM, we love Christ with all of our hearts, so we involve ourselves in positive ministries where we can express that love.
