Landon Sherman - High School Director
Hey, I'm Landon and I started working at Eastside in the summer of 2017. Previously, I lived in Arizona, but I grew up in the great state of Texas Thats where I met my wife Mackenzie (in the 3rd grade) and learned what it meant to follow Jesus. I love to get to know students, eat food, and watch and play sports. I truly believe in the presence of Gods church in our lives, and I live to create places where students can explore God and determine their God-given gifting and potential.
Rachel Rutherford - High School Associate
Hi Eastside! I'm Rachel and I have been working on our Next Gen team from Junior High, High School and our Internship since February of 2015. I am now solely working in High School and love getting to work with students in this season of life. I married my favorite person in October, love getting to know people over a cup of coffee and love a great breakfast burrito!
Stephen Pate - La Habra Student Ministries Associate
My name is Stephen and I have the joy of working with our HSM students at our La Habra Campus. I'm married to my best friend Marissa, have a dog named Duke, and love reading, basketball, good coffee, traveling, and Disneyland. My favorite part about HSM is getting to live life alongside our amazing students and Changemakers as we follow Jesus together.
Jodie Dehn - Student Ministries Admin
I am Jodie and I have worked in church administration roles (mostly) for the last 10 years. I love it, especially the Next Gen Team! I have been married to my husband, Bill for 34 awesome years. We have two grown sons, Kyle and Eric.
Stephen Kopp - Bellflower Student Ministries Associate
I'm Stephen and I am the guy who is probably always laughing or doing something really embarrassing/goofy when you meet me. I am a baller at heart, think the Eagles are by far the best football team in America, and passionately believe Raising Cane's is the greatest restaurant around, hands-down!
Katie Starr - High School Intern
Hello, I am Katie Starr. I am currently on my last year at Biola University. I will be graduating with a Marketing Management degree and a Bible minor. I have a heart for ministry, specifically high school students. I have been a part of Eastside Christian Church since I was in 1st grade. It is crazy to see how the high school ministry that I once grew up in, I am now interning for. I enjoy the real talks I am able to have with them and love helping them develop in their faith.
Mattie Alvarado - Next Gen Worship Director
Hi! I’m Mattie and I’ve been on the Next Gen Team since October 2018. I love investing in young people’s lives. I Married Lexie, the love of my life in June 2019. Things that make my life a little fuller are friendship, laughter, good food, and being out in nature.
Our HSM weekend experience incorporates high-energy music, inspiring messages, and hilarious games. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
Small groups are connection-driven groups with adult-leaders and students of the same grade and gender. Small groups take place at the second hour of our weekend experience and are designed to help you grow and connect to others.
Summer camps are the opportunity to experience Jesus like never before, get away, meet new friends and make memories that will last a lifetime.
