Young Adults // Ages 18-25
ROOTED is our Young Adults Ministry here at RHC and is made up of young adults who have graduated high school and are pursuing further education, starting out on their careers, or simply trying to figure out what is next.
A global pandemic, a statewide stay-at-home order and social distancing that limits and even eliminates face-to-face contact is creating unique challenges for everyone. College students have had to leave school and are struggling to complete their coursework online. Many of us are working from home or have lost income since our places of work have had to temporarily close. Many are struggling with anxiety and fear about what will come next and how this unfolding situation will affect us, our friends, our families, and our community.
We would love to connect with you and provide opportunities to join a loving community of young adults who are trying to follow Jesus in this time. If you would like more information about connecting with Rooted or simply want someone to pray for you, please reach out to Derek at the email addresses below.

Director of Young Adults
Derek's college years at Biola were some of the most formative in his Christian life and he knows how significant this time of life can be in one's spiritual journey. He has a passion for seeing young adults know Christ deeply and follow him wholeheartedly. He loves music, reading, watching the Angels and Ducks, and a lot of nerdy things. He and his wife April have 4 ridiculously cute kids.
When the world was upside down, God revealed himself.
In Babylon, and in every place, God is sovereign and God will win.
Join us Tuesday nights at 6PM on the patio at Redemption Hill for a study of the book of Daniel.
We'll be physically distant, but socially close, as we look at what God has for us in this crucial book.
