Director of High School Ministries

Our Director of High School Ministries is called to lead and sustain a biblically grounded, Christ-centered ministry to high school students in our community. Our aim is to give students opportunities to experience, embrace, and then extend the truth and love of Jesus Christ. We strive to be fully engaged in our missional calling to impact our local community of students and families with the gospel, as well as to engage students in God’s work around the world. We are seeking to integrate students fully into the life of the larger church family and to raise up life-long followers of Christ.

Community Presbyterian Church in Danville, California is a thriving, gospel-focused community of Christ followers located in the East Bay Area of Northern California. Ours is a church family that strives to share the truth and love of Jesus Christ with the community and world around us. We are absolutely committed to reaching out to students in our valley to make a lasting impact in their lives and to offer them the love, support, and discipleship they need to live into all that God has for them. CPC has been blessed with a great history of youth ministry, and we are excited to see who God will bring to lead our high school ministry into the years ahead.
