We are so excited to announce that what was formally known as “kid’s ministry” will now be known as “family ministry!” It may seem like a subtle distinction, but we are so focused on making the whole family system get stronger, that this intentional distinction is necessary!
After weeks of prayer and processing the youth and kids teams have come together to form one whole, and have officially integrated the vision, direction and curriculum from ages 0-18.
Over time, we know you will taste, touch and feel these changes, but one thing that will be distinctive right away is this: launching middle schoolers (ages 11-14) into a whole new classroom with Randy (students aged 7-10 will remain with Aubrey). Also, High Schoolers will be graduated into what is effectively a “life group” for their age group focused on age-appropriate “power of moments” and “catechism.”
Hey I’m Randy! I’m the youth pastor here! I grew up in San Jose, California, and spent seven years in the US Navy. I am currently pursuing a master’s in marriage and family therapy. I love watching sports, playing videogames, and watching The Office. I am dedicated to serving teenagers and want to inspire them to fall deeply in love with Jesus.
My name is Elyssa! I am originally from San Jose but have moved down to SoCal this past year for school! I’m pursing my bachelors in nursing and hope to be an emergency room practitioner someday. I love serving students as well as being a part of Watermark’s worship team. I use music as an outlet to express my relationship with God. I love to surf, hike, and do photography.
Hey we’re Annie & Stephen! In addition to a passion for the younger generation, we also enjoy surfing and spending time at the beach. If we aren’t there you can find us hanging with our pups & friends. Stephen works as an athletic trainer at Corona Del Mar High School and Annie works for a behavioral therapy company. We love serving in youth and helping the next generation develop an authentic connection and steadfast faith in the Lord.
Hey I’m Luke, I was born and raised in Orange County before going to school in Oregon. It was there where I developed a love for hiking, became annoying about coffee and most importantly met Jesus. Now, you’ll most likely find me at the gym, playing basketball, or talking theology over a cold brew coffee.
My name is Alexis ☻, born and raised in sunny SoCal! My priorities in life are Faith, Family, Friends, and FOOD!! You can always catch me trying new restaurants, watching movies/shows, and just enjoying this blessed life.
