6th + 7th + 8th graders
join us every weekend
THE JOURNEY THROUGH JUNIOR HIGH MIGHT BE ROCKY AT TIMES—BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE LONELY. our STUDENTS ARE SURROUNDED BY A COMMUNITY HELPING THEM ALONG THE WAY TO DISCOVER AND PURSUE WHAT IT MEANS TO CREATE FRIENDSHIPS THAT MATTER, FOLLOW JESUS EVERYDAY, AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD AROUND THEM.
9AM | 10:30AM | 12PM
this is a unique season of life. Students are busy, stressed, and growing up fast, and through all the changes that life is throwing at them they need a place where they can learn how God sees them and the best place to do that is at jhm.
small groups are the core of jhm

Next Gen Director
Hey! I’m Scott and get to oversee the Junior High Ministry (along with Kidside, HSM 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. Covid can’t stop us, people!
Jr. High Director
A jack of all trades and master of none…I’ve been a Jr. High pastor for over 20 years and seriously believe I’ve discovered the fountain of youth. I’m married to my best friend and have two incredible boys.
Jr. High Associate
Hey there! My name is Montana and I am stoked to be on the Junior High team at our Anaheim campus! Some of my favorite things are Jesus, tacos, walking the aisles of Target, coffee, and junior high ministry. I am married to my favorite person ever and would love nothing more than to add a miniature French bulldog to our family. I have been in ministry for the last 3 years and can’t wait for many more!
Bellflower Student Ministries Associate
I’m Stephen and I am the guy who is probably always laughing or doing something really embarrassing/goofy when you meet me. I am a baller at heart, think the Eagles are by far the best football team in America, and passionately believe Raising Cane’s is the greatest restaurant around, hands-down!
Next Gen Worship Director
What’s up, I’m Todd! I’m pumped to be a part of Next Gen, getting the privilege to hang with our JHM, gathering and worshiping together. I love to have a good time, but I also take this seriously since my wife and I have two young daughters that are just a few years away from jumping in to this age group too! I’ve been in full time ministry for 15+ years and it just keeps getting better and better!
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.
