Our Mission

Inviting people to new life in Christ

Our Strategy

Worship is a integral part of a relationship with God. Worship happens on a personal level but it should also happen on a corporate level. In CVCYouth, we offer opportunities for middle school and high school students to worship God together.

Our Staff



Joe has been on staff at CVC for 15 years. He grew up in Ohio – his parents running a Christian camp. Joe initially planned to be a Broadway star and has a theater degree from Baldwin-Wallace. When he came to his senses he finished a M.A. in theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Linda have been married for 14 years and have two kids – Geace and Logan. Joe is the full time youth pastor and also rotates as a regular part of the CVC preaching team.



Lauren is CVCYouth’s Director of Discipleship and Events. She started as an intern and stuck around long enough to be hired as staff. Although Lauren never intended to work in youth ministry, God had different plans! Lauren has a B.S. and M.A. in counseling from Clarks Summit University. Lauren and her husband, Austin, have been serving in CVCYouth for 3 years. Lauren loves to meet new people so feel free to introduce yourself, you might just make her day!



Jenn is the most recent CVCYouth Intern. She came on board in May 2019 and we are excited that she is here! Jenn has a B.S. in Camp Ministry and M.A. in Organizational Leadership from Clarks Summit University, where she also worked before coming to CVC. Jenn is passionate about discipleship, the outdoors and good coffee. She is looking forward to learning more about how to pursue discipleship within a church context before she leaves us in December to pursue world missions.

Loving God. Loving People.
