We are passionate and authentic, we like to have fun, and we hope to show the love of Jesus to students all across Orange County. No matter where you’ve come from, or what your story is, you’re welcome here. We aren’t perfect, but we’re real and we’re honest. We love Jesus and have found purpose and meaning in our life.

Ever been in the middle of a bustling train station during rush hour? Jr. High and High school students often feel that way—even when they’re alone! It can be a confusing and exciting time.

The Crossing Student Ministries (CSM) is a youth group especially tailored to help them sort it all out. With a dynamic worship experience—complete with a live band, inspirational speakers, heartfelt small group discussions, and fun games—students explore their relationship with Jesus and how that can influence every decision they make.

We aim to be a community that serves each other out of love, not obligation. We love others and welcome all. Come join us as we walk out life together and learn about what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus.

CSM United

WEdnesday - 6:30pm

Each Wednesday night, CSM United gathers from 6:30-8:00p. We will hang out together, play games, enjoy music and hear a relevant message. We meet in gender/age specific small groups from 7:30-8pm. We believe that life is best lived together. All students from 6th-12th grade are welcome to join!

SUNDAY - 9:15AM & 11:15am

Every Sunday at both the 9:15AM and 11:15AM services, students will meet in the Warehouse for games, music, and a message. Our goal is to create a unified familial experience. We will have a teaching time that mirrors the teaching in the adult service. Our hope is that by teaching on a similar topic, modified for youth, we can create better conversations between parents and students to talk about through the rest of the week. We would love to hang out with you!
