We shatter the stereotype that church is boring and invite all 6th, 7th and 8th graders to jump in and discover new friends, an exciting faith, and a really fun time!
Joe Schmaltz - Jr. High Director
A jack of all trades and master of none...I’ve been a Jr. High pastor for over 20yrs and seriously believe I’ve discovered the fountain of youth. I’m married to my best friend and have two incredible boys.
Montana Kleppe - Jr. High Associate
Hey there! My name is Montana and I am stoked to be on the Junior High team at our Anaheim campus! Some of my favorite things are Jesus, tacos, walking the aisles of Target, coffee, and junior high ministry. I am engaged to my favorite person ever and would love nothing more than to add a miniature French bulldog to our family. I have been in ministry for the last 3 years and can't wait for many more!
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

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!
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.
