    Cory Myers

    Director of Youth Ministry


    I have been blessed personally from the youth ministry at First Presbyterian Church because God used many people from the congregation in shaping my trust in God and forming an identity as a child of God. I grew up across the street from the church as a kid, and matured in my faith through the ministry of the church, Westminster woods, and Camus Life. I spent my college career locally at the SRJC and graduated from Sonoma State. During that time, I served on the youth ministry team at FPC as well as coordinating summer camps at Westminster woods. Following graduation I served at a few Presbyterian Churches in California as a youth director until I landed back at First Presbyterian Church of Santa Rosa in the summer of 2002.

    In the same way a youth director from this church made a relationship with me–a neighborhood kid– I desire to make lasting relationships with students as we explore God’s love on a personal level. Our focus is not a program. Rather our joy is connection to one another, as we grow passionate about trusting Jesus with our lives. Through evangelism, fellowship, discipleship, and service, the youth ministry at First Pres offers each student the opportunity to begin and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ through large group gatherings, Sunday school, small groups, special events, service projects, and mission trips. We truly are all in this together as family.

    When I’m not serving our students you can find me spending time with my wife and son on adventures around the world, in San Francisco fanatically following the Giants, or elbow deep in a home improvement project for my family.

    My wife, Ali , my son, Micah, and I feel blessed to be part of a church that is devoted and invests in the spiritual welfare of youth and families.
