Do you ever feel like you and your teen disagree on some of the “big things?” Or ever feel like when you talk about your different opinions on faith, values, or beliefs the conversations could go better? Maybe you just wish you felt more equipped for these conversations! Well, drop off your kids at HSM and head across the lawn for our Parent Huddle in The Commons. For those not able to attend in person, we are coming to a campus near you! Click on “email us” to receive all the info.

Next Gen Director
Hey! I’m Scott and get to oversee the High School Ministry (along with Kidside, Jr. High and Ethos). I was born in Cincinnati, educated by Michigan State, spent most of my life in Chicagoland, and yet I love the ocean. I’m a huge fan of Eastside students, and the parents who raise ’em.
High School Director
Hey there! My name is Sarah and I’m the HSM Director at Anaheim. I love being a part of the HSM family at Eastside because I’m super passionate about students finding freedom, identity, and purpose in Jesus. I know when you truly meet Jesus, your life will never be the same. My other passions include pristinely vacuumed floors, hiking, traveling to new places, coffee, winning, and finding a cool pair of shoes. I’m a HUGE fan of HSM and can’t wait for you to join the fam!
High School Associate
Hello there! My name is Nathan Woodward; I’m the HSM Associate Director. I’m passionate about helping those who don’t know they’re loved by Jesus to discover that love and the life He has to offer. I’m blessed to be married to my amazing wife, Olivia; we have a beautiful little boy named Owen and a silly dog named Lucy. I absolutely love all things Hockey, Star Wars, Disneyland, Music, Movies, and more. I’m stoked to meet you!

Hello, my name is Cristian and I get to serve on our Next Gen team as the video/photo guy!

God’s done some pretty cool things in my life and I’m excited to see what he will do in the lives of our students!
Next Gen Admin
Hey! I’m Jessica and I’m so excited to be a part of the Next Gen family! I’m married to my best friend and have 4 adorable pets. I love being outside and taking my dogs with me every chance I get. Laughing is my favorite pastime and I’ve been told that you can hear my laugh from miles away. I’ve always been a huge fan of student ministry and I can’t wait to see what God does during this next season.
