Creating a safe space for students to find their home in God.
Meet our Pastor!
Christian and Chantal Santiago have always had a heart for helping people find their home in God. Ever since they met on the mission field in 2015, they have been joined together in a passionate pursuit to communicate the heart of God to a world thirsty for genuine peace, love, acceptance, and transformation. They believe the message of the Gospel has the power to change every situation regardless of how hopeless it may seem, especially when it is communicated with transparency, grace, and truth.
Christian is a native of Orlando, Florida, and loves the Minnesota Vikings, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Hurricanes. Chantal is a native of Melbourne, Australia and loves Vegemite, overseas mission trips, and snowboarding. They made the decision to move to Southern California and be a part of Rose Drive Friends Church in June 2018. They have been married since April 2016.

“Being the Hands and Feet of Jesus to Our Backyard”
Our desire is to link students to the world through Los Angeles. The experience will include opportunities for ministry with various socio-economic and ethnic groups as well as community service agencies. It will also include opportunities to learn about other cultures and their religions. Each student will be exposed to and learn about the different cultures that make the city of Los Angeles a “melting pot”. Students will be challenged to see the people of Los Angeles (and therefore, the world) the way Jesus sees them . . . in desperate need of a Savior!
