Shepherd of the Hills Church, 25101 Bear Valley Road, is relaunching their new Youth Ministry InnerState 180 with new Youth Pastor Jesse Morales.
Morales said the definition of "180" means to turn around and go in the opposite direction, adding that in 2 Corinthians 5:17, the Apostle Paul writes, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new." When one surrenders their life to Christ, their lifestyle and view of sin are totally transformed, thus revealing a 180 in their lives.
InnerState 180 will start meeting on Thursday evenings from 6:30 until 8 p.m. on Dec. 5, at Cummings Valley Elementary School, 24220 Bear Valley Road, in Room 31, he said. Shepherd Of The Hills Church meets at the school on Sundays at 10 a.m. in the cafeteria.
Morales has been working in the youth ministry for many years, serving as a youth pastor, associate pastor, pastor, counselor, and an international youth speaker and evangelist.
He is a five-time award-winning Christian recording artist and drummer through the Gospel Music Association having toured the U.S., other countries and having been signed to multiple record labels including Word/Elektra Records.
He is a licensed and ordained pastor, and certified counselor and life strategies coach. Having been featured on the CBN Network, The 700 Club, TBN, JCTV, ABC Family Network, NRB Network, The Cornerstone Network, TLN Network, Sirius Radio, NBC Radio, and many other National/International Radio shows.
