Our high school ministry is lead by

Rob & Sam Smidt

LBCF High School ministries is dedicated to partnering with the families of our community’s 9th-12th graders for the purpose of discipling them in their relationships with Jesus Christ, establishing in them a firm foundation upon which to build a God-centered life, teaching them about God’s restorative plan for creation, and helping them discern the role that God has for them in that plan. A major part of reaching these objectives is ensuring that the youth are integrated into the larger LBCF community, as opposed to being an isolated community of its own. This includes both investing in the LBCF congregation and being invested in by the congregation.

Leader’s Vision: our vision is for the students to grow in their relationship with God as they dive deeper into the relationships around them. We encourage our students to foster their spiritual growth through our four main points of focus: Prayer, Worship, Scripture, and Fun.

Passion: we are passionate about youth finding their identity in God and learning to hear his voice speak Truth in a world where our students are surrounded by negativity and ideas of false love.

Meeting times: we meet on Tuesdays from 7:00p - 8:30p in the Loft at LBCF. On the 1st & 3rd Sundays we meet for a High School devotion in Room 118 and on the 2nd & 4th Sundays we stay in the gathering to serve and worship with the congregation.

Ways to get involved: if you are a high school student come hang out with us on Tuesdays during the school year! We also have monthly fellowship events like ice skating, laser tag, bowling, Knott’s Berry Farm, and camping trips! If you are person that loves pouring into high schoolers, come volunteer with us on Tuesdays, Sundays, any special event, or sign up to mentor a high schooler.
