The Mission of IPC and it’s Worship Ministry
IPC exists to connect people to Jesus and deepen their faith, so they can change the world around them. The Worship Ministry at IPC, led by the Worship Team Leader, serves this mission by faithfully and consistently leading our congregation to connect with God through music and corporate singing each week. We believe that corporate worship should be biblically based, Holy Spirit inspired, culturally relevant, engaging to younger and older generations, and more than just singing.
