A community of believers (ages 18 – 26) seeking to understand our identity in Christ, to worship Him together from that identity, and to represent Him to our society and impact people through service and genuine love. Hosted at the Simon’s home, 13621 Wheeler Pl. Tustin CA 92780. Contact John and Janelle for more info. 714.832.7756

How do we impact our community? By reaching outside of the walls of our church building to touch the lives of people who live, work and play alongside us.

Our desire is to encourage those who have a call for missions to dare to do what they think is impossible. With our monthly Paul and Barnabas Meetings, we train and encourage those who have gone out on the mission field. We also share our stories of what God has done. The Paul and Barnabas Group meets the third Sunday of the Month at 11:30 am. We meet at the Zeyak home, 2124 E. Wellington Ave., Santa Ana.

We strongly believe that it is the primary responsibility of parents to train their children up in the ways of the Lord. We see it as a privilege and joy to come alongside parents in helping with the spiritual, social, and emotional development of their child. We seek to do this by creating a safe, loving, joyful environment in which the children can grow in their relationship with God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In regards to our teachers, we train them regularly and we run national criminal/sex offender background checks to ensure that your children are in safe hands. Our teachers love the Lord and His kids. We desire to “re-present” Jesus to them in word and action. We believe that the Holy Spirit desires to teach, lead, comfort, and move through children now and that they do not need to wait to be “grown ups” to have relationship with God and to be co-laborers with Him.

Our classrooms are divided by age so that we can teach age appropriate materials. Although our Kids’ Rock class worships as a whole group, we divide the kids into groups by age for crafts, snacks, prayer, and Bible drama.
