Loving God & People

::: Our Vision :::

Welcome to LGP! “Loving God and People” middle school ministry is a place where students and staff alike strive to live up to our title. It is our desire to love God with our whole heart and cherish our neighbors as ourselves; take a look at Matthew 22:36-40. Our vision is to love God and others through forms of worship, discipleship, service, evangelism, and fellowship. As we strive to seek God, He has been gracious to grant us tons of fun in the process!

::: Meet the LGP Volunteer Staff :::

Check out the bios below and meet the volunteers

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

  • Devin Fieguth

    Devin is our amazing Pastoral Intern within the middle school department. He has been serving on middle school staff for over five years now, and he recently earned his M.Div. from Talbot School of Theology. 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.

  • "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!

  • Sara Parsons

    Along with being our official Biola Intern through the Christian Ministries Department, Sara is beginning her third year on the LGP team. She adds to the diversity of the group, being a Colorado native and a brilliant Torrey student. We are excited for the girls who will have Sara in their small group this semester because she brings love and depth to her ministry.

  • Joseph Risser

    Joseph has been serving middle school students at Granada for over a year now, and he is still the freshest addition to the LGP team! After serving at a high school camp in Germany and then our middle school students at Thousand Pines Christian Camp this summer, Joseph is ready to jump back into the routine this school year. He is beginning his sophomore 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 LGP 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 Houck

  • Duane Litz Jr. 

    Duane has been serving middle school students for about 16 years at Granada in various capacities. Although he has by no means "seen everything" in middle school ministry, he KNOWS the middle school mind. He loves students, deeply wants them to fall more in love with Jesus on a daily basis, and enjoys the journey learning from them as well.
