Fusion (age 25-40)
Fusion is a ministry Life Group that provides connection for single and married ages 25 – 40. The objective of the group is to develop lifestyles that follow biblical principles and have a foundation in the Bible. We connect in such a way that when the need arises to take care one another, no matter the need, we are always there to help. We follow the vision of our Pastor to, “find a need and fill it, find a hurt and heal it.”
Through the year we connect with the Fusion Group via email and phone to be a part of many connection activities and events such as:
Fusion Family Events:
Many of our events encourage the entire family to come out and join in the fun. Some of the socials provide child-care at a low cost. We believe that family is important and kids should not be left out. Some of these events are:
Our hope is that you can find a place to get connected and what better of a place than in the Fusion Life Group. If you would like to become connected, please know that you will be welcomed and enjoy great fellowship with a group you can relate to.

Jail & Prison Ministry
Matthew 5:46 says, “For if you love them which love you, what reward have you? Do not even sinners do the same?” It is our desire in this ministry to love those who have been rejected and who need hope beyond their current circumstances. The heart of this ministry is to take the gospel of Christ to men and women incarcerated in the prison system with love, compassion and an understanding that except for the grace of God we could be in the same condition.
Who Can Be Involved?
To be effective, you must have the feeling that God has called you and you have a deep conviction that He is sending you into this ministry for Christian service. Such a calling will give you the strength and compassion to face the setbacks and disappointments that are inherent in working with inmates and families of inmates. God will instill the faith you need in yourself and your abilities as a jail/prison volunteer.
When & Where Do Our Events Take Place?
We have multiple times from which you can choose. We have services at various county jails and at Warren Correctional Institute (the state prison) at various times during the month.
Why Should Someone Become Involved?
Thousands in our area are incarcerated and in need of compassionate and caring servants of God to bring Christ’s message of hope and salvation to them. It is truly living out the scripture in Matthew 25:40 that says, “In as much as you have done it unto one of the least of these, you have done it unto Me.” The outreach to the hurting is a mandate of Scripture to all who follow Christ.

The Artist Ministry is a place to help find other Christian Artists who work in the Visual Arts. We share information about different and new materials, locations of art shows and competitions, and how to serve God with our talents. This ministry is not about the artists; it is about how the artists can serve the church and the outer community through their gifts and passions. This ministry strives to bring artists together to use art as a vehicle for ministry in the community.
If you would like to use your artistic talents for God, we have a variety of avenues to do this:
The artists in this ministry are very helpful and friendly! We would love to have you as a part of our team!
The Artist Ministry meets on the second Saturday of every month, in the Adult Education room at 1 PM. During this meeting time we may go outside to paint or draw at a park, or visit a special exhibit at a museum in the area. Come and be immersed in a creative environment to construct your work, and be around other artists who share your passions.
The artist ministry started 6 years ago because of a need to fellowship with other Christian Artists. God put this ministry into the hearts of our leadership and He has done the rest! We look forward to hearing from you!

Pastoral Care Ministry
“I was sick and ye visited me. I was in prison and ye came unto me.” Matt. 25:36
Pastoral Care is a ministry devoted to prayer and visitation. We believe in being His Hands extended to those that are hurting, lonely, and in need through prayer, regular pastoral care visitation, and church family volunteer visitation teams. Visitation and Prayer go hand-in-hand to reach out in Faith and help hurting people. In the Prayer Ministry we encourage people to become men and women of prayer; to inspire them to pray fervently, offer prayer training and expect that together we can be what Christ said His church was to be, “a house of prayer.”
Join the team of Pastors that make regular visits and find the joy of “ministering to others!”

This ministry is comprised of a team of people who are faithful laborers in the kingdom and sensitive to the Holy Spirit. They have a loving attitude and servant’s heart. The altar workers minister to those who come to the altar to receive salvation, restoration and/or the baptism in the Holy Spirit.
“…and he that winneth souls is wise.” – Proverbs 11:30
How to Become a Part of this Ministry:
The In-Service Intercessors ministry is made up of very dedicated people who want to commit to pray for our church services during the service. We have enough people that there are 3 to 4 people interceding every Sunday. The commitment is only for 3 Sundays a year. We pray for the Pastor, the choir, the orchestra, the sound team, the media team and those responding to the Altar call.
If you have any questions or have an interest to join this ministry, please feel free to contact us! We hope to hear from you soon!

Hearing Impaired Ministry
When Jesus commanded us to make disciples of all people, the command included the deaf and hearing impaired. To not do so would be to disobey God’s Word. One of Jesus’ special miracles was the healing of a man who could neither hear nor speak. We have the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to minister especially to the spiritual needs of the deaf and hearing impaired. Our goal is to continually fulfill Isaiah 29:18a: “And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book…” We want the deaf to meet Jesus, who can meet their every need. Our Mission is to build relationships, share God’s word, communicate thru sign language, and make ministry available to everyone.
Currently, all Sunday AM services are interpreted. An interpreter can be available for other service times and ministry opportunities if needed.
Everyone is welcome to worship and participate in the Deaf Ministry, whether you are deaf, hearing impaired, or hearing! There are opportunities to receive the preached word of God through sign interpretation, but also to communicate, learn or use sign language skills, and fellowship. We are truly thankful to be able to offer this ministry to our community. It is such a blessing to see someone who is either deaf or hearing impaired connect with God’s Word in a meaningful way, and we are blessed because of it. Our desire at Princeton Pike Church of God is to reach the deaf for Jesus Christ. We understand the needs of the deaf community. We want to win deaf souls for Christ and disciple them so that they can live a victorious Christian life in the deaf community.
Are you an interpreter, or have signing skills you would like to use in this ministry? Please see one of our current interpreters after service, or contact us!
