Hi there! We are so glad you are here! My name is Christian Santiago and my wife, Chantal, & I want to personally welcome you to the High School Ministry of Rose Drive Friends Church. We believe so much in the God-given potential of every student who attends high school, that God has put on our hearts to create an environment where students can catch the two most important things in their lives: being comfortable in God’s presence and knowing their purpose in life.
When students are able to be comfortable in God’s presence, they know Who to turn to when they need strength for another day, joy in the midst of sorrow, and guidance when things are unclear. Being comfortable in God’s presence has profoundly affected my life and given me hope when I should have quit, and I know it can do the same for every student. Consequently, when students discover the reason they were born, life seems to become clearer. They will no longer choose to be distracted by succeeding in their potential, but be focused on fulfilling their purpose. When Chantal & I embraced our purpose over our potential, we have been amazed by what God has done in our lives. We live and breathe to see this same effect occur in every student that is in our High School group.
We believe these two things are so vital for each student to grasp that our mission for our High School Ministry is: Creating a safe haven for students to encounter the presence of God and discover the reason they were born. This is our aim and the focus of God’s heart for this group.
If you are a parent and wish to have your student(s) develop in this type of atmosphere or a High School student yourself and are looking for a community to embrace you and help you grasp these two vital things for your life, we would love for you to join us on Sunday mornings at 9am and Wednesdays at 7pm. This is your open, official invite!
If you have any questions whatsoever about the High School Ministry, about God, or about us, don’t hesitate to reach to me via email at ChristianS@rdf.org. We cannot wait for you to join us at our next gathering!
Serving you always,
Christian & Chantal Santiago
