Meet Our Team
Dave went to the University of Arizona and Biola but it was a while ago and he only remembers bits and pieces. He spent time with Cru overseas as a campus missionary and what he values most about every mission trip, camp, event, and season of life are the relationships; the people. His true calling, however is karaoke. Working out is his therapy which also means he loves to eat. Jessica is his beautiful wife, Caleb and Seth are his two wild boys. JHM is where He’s privileged to serve and connect your sons and daughters to Jesus and to grow God’s Kingdom.
JHM Life Group Associate
Alison is a Biola graduate who majored in Communications because of her love for people and it is that love that led her into ministry with Jr. Highers! She LOVES Coffee (like seriously loves it!), fresh flowers and the ocean. Her heart is filled with joy in the presence of friendship, laughter, Jr. High girls and Brunch! She is always happy to be a resource to parents and students, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to her!
JHM Programming Associate
Blake is a graduate of Hope International University in Fullerton with a degree in Church Ministry. He’s passionate about serving the Church by working with students and showing them how God intends for them to belong in His Kingdom! A few other things that get Blake stoked are dried mangoes, high quality hangs w/ friends, and birthday dance parties.
JHM Field Worker

Transition Tips for Success
In the many years we have worked with youth at Friends Church, we have observed some things parents can do to help their student successfully transition into Student Ministries.
We need YOU!
Do you love Jesus and working with Jr. Highers? Then we need you! We are always on the lookout for people who are willing to serve our students as Gathering (Sunday Morning), Group Life (Mid-Week) leaders. If you don’t have a lot of time, consider being a part of our Resource Team.
Worship Together Weekends
Worship Together means that children (1st-6th grades) and students (7th-12th grades) join their parents in the Worship Center rather than have their own programming.
