OUR TEAM

This community is led and maintained by full-time staff who give their lives to the task of journeying with students on this campus to discover and build a deeper relationship with Jesus. 

When school is in session, we have a group of student leaders who have committed to serving this community in a more hands-on way. They lead our Community Groups, student Music Team, volunteer massive amounts of time to help our Grow Trips & Initiatives, and are responsible for spearheading many of our other events.
