Cathedral of Faith Youth
If you are between 11-18 years old, this is the place for you!
Every Sunday and Wednesday we come together to worship the Lord as young people, COFY is the right place to get to know about Jesus and the plan He has for your life. The Bible says in Jeremiah 29:11 that He knows the plans that He has for you, not to harm you but to give you a bright future, in other words, He has something specific and amazing for you, something that only you are called and that you love to do, He has given you gifts and talents so you could reach your full potential and you can help others reach theirs!
No matter your background, upbringing or ethnicity, God has a plan for your life, come and connect with others and grow in your relationship with God. We hope to see you @ COFY!

SALT – STUDENT LEADERSHIP
SALT -Student And Leadership Training. SALT is our youth leadership development program designed to help students take their fait seriously by providing mentoring, leadership opportunities and specialized training. In SALT we teach students how to develop their personal relationship with God by coming alongside them through their lives throughout their middle and high school years.
If you are wanting to grow in your relationship with God and pursue His calling for your life in a more intentional way. SALT is for you.
For more info contact Pastor Esther Heeregrave.
Every Wednesday our group meets in small groups to dive into our Sunday topic further. We have mentors who lead each small group, separated by grade and gender to help focus in on the relevant issues. Our desire is that each student will have the opportunity to choose a mentor to help them understand their identity in Christ and pursue God’s dreams for their lives.
Joes & Esther Heeregrave
Joes and Esther, along with their three kids— Juice-Judah, Hadassah and Zaráh— are here from Amsterdam to serve our youth. They come with extensive experience in serving all over the world as missionaries in England, South Africa, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, and now here in the Bay Area. Their passions include helping young people discover God’s dream for their life and develop the next generation of leaders. They enlist all of the creativity of arts, music, dance and spoken word to captivate young people with the Gospel.
As parents, you are the most influential people in the lives of your students. The role you have in your kid’s life is beyond valuable and irreplaceable. We also understand that raising youth can come with many challenges, and that is why COFY is committed to come alongside you and assist your kids to overcome every obstacle and to achieve every dream and become successful in all that God has for them. We encourage you to do all that you can to get your students involved in our ministry. If there is anything we can do for you or if you have any questions please feel free to contact us. We are always praying for you and your families, and we look forward to hearing from you. Below our some helpful resources we pray will bless you and be an encouraging source.

- Student Recovery
We are always looking for passionate adults to help lead and mentor young people. Studies show that 50% of young people abandon their faith after high school but the presence of adults in the life of a student shows to significantly help them through their struggles and hold onto their faith in God through their formative teenage years. Our goal is to provide 5 adult relationships for every student to encourage and develop their faith. Volunteer times are diverse and can adapt to fit different schedules. If you have a passion to serve young people contact us today, we will have you shadow a service and if we feel this is something you would like to commit to, we will have you fill out the “Cathedral of Faith Volunteer application” and then the “Youth Ministry Volunteer Application”
