Meet our Youth Coordinator

Cristina Winchell is a recent Lancaster Bible College Graduate with a BA in Youth & Young Adult Ministry and Biblical Studies. She enjoys meeting new people and empowering students to walk confidently in the footsteps of Jesus. In her free time, she enjoys hammocking, hammocking, and finding new places to hammock. Make sure to find her on a Sunday and say hi!

Our Small Group Leaders

Every week, our small group leaders lead a discussion on the message and anything else students want to talk about. We believe that this investment grows the influence of a trustworthy adult in the lives of these students.
