IBSA’s Student Ministry is your church’s partner in reaching and leading students to be growing followers of Jesus Christ. We provide statewide, regional, and individual training, support, and consultation for student ministry staff, leaders, and volunteers. In partnership with IBSA churches, we also provide safe, fun, and gospel-focused events for students, like summer camp, Super Summer, Youth Encounter, DNow, and mission opportunities.
INVESTING IN THE NEXT GENERATION
Youth Encounter is a 2-day youth evangelism weekend designed to reach students in Jr/Sr High School for the Gospel, deepen their relationship with Christ, and be sent out to do Kingdom Work in their communities.
Super Summer is not an ordinary summer youth camp. The goal is to encourage and equip students to live an active life as a Christ-follower at home, school, their community, their country, and the world.
One week of fun and focus on Jesus can change a life forever. With camps for both children and youth held at IBSA’s retreat properties in northern and southern Illinois, it can be your students BEST WEEK EVER.
A discipleship weekend just for girls grades 6-12. Filled with worship, fun, and speakers focused on helping girls become passionate followers of Jesus in their world, AWSOM is held every November in Central Illinois.
