MIDDLE SCHOOL PASTOR, JOURNEY COMMUNITY CHURCH
BIO: Christina has been working in middle school ministry for more than 13 years and is middle school pastor at Journey Community Church just outside San Diego. She loves connecting and brainstorming ideas with other youth workers, so feel free to stop her and get her talking. (And ask her about her ongoing list of “things I never thought I would have to say until I started working in youth ministry,” including but not limited to “please put the dead pelican down” and “if you bring your pet goldfish to youth group, please don’t forget it under the stage for several weeks.”)
