The youth ministry of GCF Hays is designed to propel our youth into action, and to give them a bigger vision for their lives. We look to not only stir up passion for Christ, but show them they are meant, called, and equipped to do the mission that God has called them to. We believe that every youth that enters our doors will leave knowing they are a strong Christian and see God move throughout all areas of influence.
We offer times of fun-filled games and fellowship, worship, and biblical teachings. Outside of our weekly meetings we offer community projects, special intensives and seminars designed to equip youth with current issues they face today, and also mission trips (both domestic and international).
Robert currently serves as youth leader at GCF. He loves to engage and encourage youth through fun games and great conversations. Robert initially visited the church at the invitation of a co-worker, and after experiencing God in such a powerful way he decided to wholeheartedly pursue God with a renewed vision and sense of purpose. In addition to serving in youth ministry, Robert is a valued member of the media team on Sunday mornings.
A proud veteran, Robert served in the United States Navy as a Information Systems Technician. He studied at the University of Texas El Paso and received his B.S. and B.A. from the University of Phoenix.
Robert is a El Paso native and grew up in a rich culture of good Mexican food and music. Outside of church, you’ll find him at the gym, experimenting with new ways to cook cauliflower and watching sports. He has two great fur loves in his life; Khloey and Dexter.
Christina loves serving as a youth leader because she has a good understanding of today’s youth and the challenges they face. She has developed close relationships with the youth of the church and their families and wants to be a support to them as they walk out their relationship with Jesus.
Initially invited by friends, Christina and her family agreed to visit Grace Community Fellowship Hays and it was a life-changing experience. She decided to pursue God with her whole heart. After joining the church, Christina and her family became active members and continue to love and serve everyone who walks through the door. Christina leads a wonderful team of volunteers known as the First Impressions Ministry here at GCF. On any given Sunday, Christina will be one of the first to greet you with a big smile and easy conversation.
Christina is an orthopedic surgeon and went to school at the University of North Texas. She is married to Daniel and together they have 8 children. Christina grew up in Buda, and is very glad to continue to be a part of this community. She enjoys exercising, reading and playing games.
