Ignite: Junior Youth Ministry

What We're About 


Fun. Fellowship. Serving. IGNITE is Prince of Peace's Junior youth ministry.  We're all about learning, growing in our faith, building relationships, and serving God with the gifts we've been given.  Each time we meet we engage in combination of teaching, small group time, games, service projects, fellowship and outreach opportunities...not to mention that we start our activities with fun food!

Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm | Grades 6-8

Come as early as 6:00pm for dinner and open gym/game/homework time!

This year, we are following the POP "Big Idea" each week in our teaching time and small groups....with a Middle school twist!  It gives us an opportunity to be learning with the rest of the congregation, and to have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about each topic with our peers and adult mentors.  This is Christian Disciple Training for Middle School Students, and it just a piece of our "Confirmation" preparation.  For an overview of what preparing for Confirmation looks like at Prince of Peace, click here


 "The King will reply, Truly I tell you whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

We embrace this verse from Matthew 25:40. Students are encouraged to help out with serving projects at church, in addition to special serving nights where we go off campus.   We serve with local organizations such as Feed My Starving Children, and Community Threads Resale Shop, to name a few.  

Students serve at Prince of Peace in a variety of ways; on worship host teams, in the church nursery, in Children's Ministry, in the Worship Arts, and many more!  We desire for students to be regularly using the gifts they have been given.
