Shifting our mindsets, attitudes, and lives so we can cultivate a shift movement in our culture and world back to Jesus

Our Motto

“We are more than a ministry; we are movement."


Our personal worship, teachings, and conduct help us build relationships with our students so they can build relationships with God.

The 4 "R"s

Reach - We will reach youth. We will seek the lost and hurting. We will do this through having a presence on school campuses, hosting events, and looking for opportunities to build relationships with all youth in the city.

Relationship- We will be intentional about building authentic relationships with our students that will speak truth, love, and life into their lives. Our relationship with them will encourage them to seek a relationship with Jesus. We will be involved in the lives of our students and support them in the things they are passionate about. 

Root- We will be intentional about teaching them the Bible. Showing them how to read, study, and apply God’s word in their lives. We want to build a firm foundation that creates a thirst and hunger to know God more. We will accomplish this through Wednesday Night services, Sunday mornings, Student Leadership, and also mentoring.

Release- We want to release our youth to be the influencers and world changers God has called them to be. We will create serve opportunities through missions trips, outreaches, and community events that allow our students to live out their faith.

  • Youth Pastor - Chris Gonzales

    Chris and his wife, Ashley, were called to move to Anchorage from California in September of 2018 with their three daughters. They have seen God provide for them in some pretty amazing ways! They have a passion for following Jesus and want to see this generation of youth have the same passion and desire to follow Jesus.
