Christ Church Youth Ministry inspires, empowers, and celebrates youth, in partnership with their families, to develop a life-long identity in the body of Christ. 


  • Loving – We love as Christ loves us.
  • Serving – We serve each other and our neighbors.
  • Accepting – We see God in every person and we welcome all.
  • Learning – We grow through encounters with scripture, tradition, reason, and experience.
  • Seeking – We listen and respond to the Holy Spirit.

Youth in 6th-12th grades and their friends are welcome to participate in the youth ministry offerings at Christ Church. If you'd like to learn more than what's available here, please contact Santi Rodriguez, Youth Minister.

What happens at Youth Group meetings?

Sunday youth group meetings are a time for youth and their adult youth leaders to enjoy spending time with each other in a safe and relaxed setting playing games, exploring our faith, and doing service projects. We also have special retreat weekends, ski trip, group outings and lock-ins. For more information, to contact Santi Rodriguez.
