The Heart of Awaken

Purity of Heart, Clarity of Mind, Boldness of Speech. We are young men and women coming to an awakening through Christ becoming the visionary, the missionary, the chosen to finish the Great Commission. We are about creating disciples that set an example IN WORD - IN CONDUCT - IN LOVE - IN SPIRIT - IN PURITY.

Sunday Mornings With Awaken

Before Service: Your youth will stay with you during the worship portion of service in the main sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 10am.


During Service: Your youth will be released to attend a powerful relevant message from our Youth Pastor Monica Hortiales.


After Service: Your youth will be refreshed and inspired, ready to march into this dark world and be a light!

Wednesday Nights With Awaken

Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm our Youth group has their own full-length service. The Awaken Youth Band leads our students in a time of worship and are brought a relevant lively message from our Youth Pastor Monica or a member of the Awaken Leadership team.
