Refuge | High School

high school ministry

Student ministries exists to create environments and develop relationships where students feel safe, are known by the church community and adopted by and discipled through intergenerational relationships so they can live into their calling as agents of His kingdom. In addition, we partner with parents to train and equip them to help their students discover how to live life as a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Special Events

2020 High School Winter Camp

January 24 - 26

9th through 12th graders are heading up to Alpine Meadows this winter! This year our high schoolers will be going to camp in Alpine Meadows, near Big Bear Lake. We will be putting this camp on ourselves where the vibe will be deeply relational with a ton of fun! Because of the new format of our trip, we will be able to dive deep into our faith and in a way that helps the students of St. Andrew's in a way that is targeted just for them. For more info, contact Scott Cody at or 949.574.2271.
