::: Our Vision :::

Welcome to Abide! Middle school ministry is a place where students and staff alike strive to live up to our title. It is our desire to learn how to abide more deeply in Jesus; take a look at John 15:1-11. Our vision is to learn love and obedience to God through forms of worship, discipleship, service, evangelism, and fellowship. This is a process and must begin with abiding in Jesus. Apart from Him we can do nothing (John 15:5).

::: Spring Programs :::

  • We meet in the middle school room (D-28) at church.

who pour into the lives of our middle school students on a weekly basis.

  • Devin Fieguth

    Devin is our amazing Middle School Pastor! He has been serving in our middle school department for over five years now. He earned his M.Div. from Talbot School of Theology in 2017. He demonstrates an excellent balance between spiritual maturity and middle school energy. He has a passion for ministry and young people. He also brings many years of youth camp experience into the middle school group which elevates the intentionality and excitement of the ministry.

  • Dave Geis

    Dave is our awesome worship leader. Dave brings a down to earth but fun vibe to the group. He loves to play games as well as "chill" with the students. He is bringing his passion for worship to Abide ministry, and is helping to our worship of Jesus to the next level.

  • "Papa" John Baima

    Papa John represents the best of both worlds: he is both a leader in the middle school ministry and a dad. He is greatly loved by his small group who affectionatly gave him the title "Papa" John. He has more excitement in his pinky finger than most of us have in our entire bodies: he'll compete, he'll cheer, he'll dance, and if you're lucky, he'll even share from the abundance of his candy supply!

  • Joseph Risser

    Joseph has been serving middle school students at Granada for over two years now, and he is still the coolest addition to the abide team! He is beginning his junior year at Biola, and he is excited to see where God will take him in the field of education. We are blessed to have Joseph serving our middle school students with passion and excellence yet again this year!

  • Megan Litz

    The lovely Megan Litz has reunited with the middle school team after a few years off. She is an experienced middle school teacher, and currently runs her own tutoring business helping students with dyslexia. She is just about the most thoughtful, patient, and generous woman you will ever meet. These traits which translate into a deep love for students make for a great leader.

  • Noelle Geis

    Noelle is in her second year with our abide squad.. She loves being outdoors, and sharing the joy of nature and God's creation with others. She has experience working with middle school students from both the science camp setting and when she was teaching at the Aquarium of the Pacific.
