Malibu Pacific Youth

What is Build: Youth Ministry?

Build: Youth Ministry is our ministry for 7th-12th graders.

Malibu Pacific Church strives to connect the unconnected to Christ and together grow in full devotion to Him. Maybe you’ve heard about “God” before in your life, Sunday School, or in conversation. Maybe you’re just beginning to ask if there’s something else out there. Maybe you haven't heard about Jesus at all, no matter where you are on your journey,  you are welcome here! 
At BUILD, you will be introduced to a Christ Centered Community. We aren’t perfect but we strive to follow the one who is perfect! At Youth Group at Malibu Pacific Church, you will find an open, real, safe,  and really fun community that will strive to love you… for you. Again we aren’t perfect or claim to be perfect but we are whole because we have a Savior who makes us whole.

We create fun/engaging environments where you can just BE… be the you who God created you to be! So please know that our doors are always open for you come join in on all the crazy awesome adventures. Just make sure to check out our calendar below and don’t miss out on all of the awesomeness.

Youth Discipleship

Being a disciple means that Jesus is transforming us, through that transformation we hope that others would take notice and be drawn to who we are becoming and to who Jesus is. Our desire is to see transformation in ourselves, our friends, and our schools!
The Youth Discipleship Group is made up of High School Students from The Gathering and Malibu Pacific Church. Members of this group must be able to sign the following agreement.

*This group is already meeting, but please let us know if your student is interested in joining the next one!

Meet the team.
