Middle School

We’re passionate about exposing students to Jesus Christ and helping them experience Him in relevant and exciting ways. There’s always something going on, so come and check us out and see how you can get involved. Our ministry exists to reach non-believing students, connect them with other Christians, help them grow in their faith, challenge them to grow and discover their ministry and honor God with their lives. It is our heart to grow together in a personal and passionate relationship with Christ, allow God’s Word and His Spirit to influence every aspect of our lives, and live out our faith in a real way that impacts those around us.


Are you ready to experience life as you never thought possible? Wired is the perfect opportunity to join hundreds of middle school students each week as you ignite your faith and learn about God’s passionate love for you! Come and participate in off-the-wall games and high-energy worship, enjoy hilarious and thought-provoking videos, and get challenged by a relevant, practical message straight from God’s Word. Wired is every Wednesday night at 6:30 in Hall 1 of the Student Building at Idlewild. Come early and hang out in the LOFT, which opens at 5:30 every week. Challenge your friends to a game of pool, air hockey, foosball, or one of the games on our Nintendo Wii or X-Box 360.
