Youth Ministry


Our 6th-8th Middle School Group

"For at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light."
Ephesians 5:8

The goal of Illuminate is to equip students with a love and a knowledge of the Gospel. While the goal of the children’s program here at Jville Pres is to give students a solid foundation and basis for their beliefs in Christ, the goal of youth ministry is to help students take those foundations and apply them to their lives so that they can own their faith.

Our staff and volunteers are committed to “fanning the flames'' of our middle schoolers so that they may feel truly compelled to open their hearts and let the Lord illuminate them from the inside out.

Meeting time: 7:00pm-8:30pm at the church campus every Tuesday night. We hang out, play organized games, worship, learn about the Gospel, and grow together in discussion groups.


Our 9th-12th grade High School group

“Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
Matthew 5:16

Similarly to Illuminate, the goal of the Ignite group and our entire K-12 program here at JPC is to equip students with a love and a knowledge of the Gospel in order to give the Holy Spirit room to ignite a fire that compels them to show Christ in their actions. So while the goal of Illuminate is to help students fan the flames of their own faiths, the goal of Ignite is to help them burn so bright that they ignite a fire in those around them.

Meeting time: 7:00pm-9:00pm at the church campus every Wednesday night. We hang out, eat a meal provided by the church, play organized games, worship, learn about the Gospel, and grow together in discussion groups.

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."

Ephesians 5:8

Can we still attend Jville Pres. youth groups if our family goes to another church or does not attend church at all?

Yes! We welcome families of all faiths from all different walks of life.

Who are the volunteers working with my student?

All of our volunteers are believers in God and are members of the church. They have gone through an interview process to assess whether their values align with the EPC’s, we have run a background check on them, and they have a passion for youth ministry.

How do I get my student connected to the Youth Group at Jville Pres?

There are a couple of options. The easiest way is to get in touch with the Youth Director Nate at You can also call the church office at (541) 899-1287, you can come to the church office, or you can find a staff member during any of our Sunday worship services.

What are the events provided on a week-to-week basis?

For Illuminate, we have Tuesday night youth group and Friday night Light Night (every other week). For Illuminate, we have Wednesday night youth group, and Friday night Light Night (every other week).

Our Illuminate Tuesday night youth group goes from 7:00pm-8:30pm, our Ignite Wednesday night youth group goes from 7:00pm-9:00pm, our Thursday morning, and our Friday night Light Night goes from 6:30pm-8:30pm.
