Our Mission Statement
The Youth Ministry exists to reach youths for Christ, to help them grow in their faith, to care for one another and to offer themselves in service to Christ.
An YMPACT Youth is redeemed to and for their Church, Community and Connexion.
YMPACT started in 2000 with just over 20 youths. Back then, we were known as ISS, Intermediate Sunday School, and we were based in the Peace Cove. Spiritual growth was slow and lethargic and many felt that change was important for the Youth Ministry.
In 2001, after some changes to the ISS structure, we started a new worship team and moved from the Peace Cove to the Aldersgate Hall. We came to be known as the PMC YM. Coming to church then became an exciting time of meeting God. The number of youths doubled and many were challenged into a deeper relationship with God. The next 3 years would be a time of learning what worked and what did not, with respect to the development of the Youth Ministry. As the Youth Ministry continued to grow, there was much talk of a youth service, but for many years that remained a dream. However in 2005, PMC underwent a building extension project, and we were challenged to rebuild ourselves structurally as well as spiritually in preparation for 2006, when we had the resources to start a youth service. 2006 was a new beginning for the youths in PMC. With a new Chapel that we had moved into on Sunday mornings, we could now have a youth service to cater to the growing numbers in the Youth Ministry. We held a competition and put the submitted entries to a vote, before deciding on YMPACT as our name. This serves as a lasting reminder of how we want to make an impact in our community. Currently standing at over 200 strong, we desire to be a shining light and an impactful force in Pasir Ris and the communities in which we find ourselves.
Moving past the stage of infancy, YMPACT will continue to strive in growing for the glory of God's Kingdom. We ask that as you read this, you will pray alongside us, for God's favour to continue to shower on His ministry in YMPACT, and that His people will continue to hunger and thirst for His righteousness.
Service is followed by Bible study in small groups for those aged 13 to 16. These sessions are led by Senior Youths or mature Christians from the church.
Youth aged 17 to 25, have their own Life Groups during the week for similar purposes, and to develop strong friendships and accountability between each other.
We are gathered on Sundays at 8.00am at the Prayer Room (near the breakfast area) to pray for our needs, our church and our generation.
YMPACT happens every Sunday at 9am in the Chapel (4th floor). We enjoy a time of worshipping our God through singing His praises, speaking to Him through prayer and hearing His Word. Come join us and be part of a service that gives rightful praise to a mighty God!
