high school

Church for high school students! High school students gather for worship at 11am (Inside the HSM Room) and 5pm (Inside the Worship Center and Online on Youtube) on Sundays at Calvary.  You can expect to hang out with friends, hear a message preached from the Bible and worship with our outstanding band! 
We are currently practicing social distancing, and wearing masks during service in order to comply with CDC guidelines. If you or someone in your household have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 we ask that you stay home and instead join us online via our 5pm Youtube live-stream.
Every week people come for the first time and if you have never been, we are excited for you to come.

Cultivate Conference

The Cultivate Conference is a one day event for high school students to grow in their faith. Students will get to spend a day at the beautiful camp, Forest Home Ojai, hearing from guest speakers, participating in chapels and worship, spending time in community; all centered around our theme of cultivating faith in the Lord. 


Small Groups

Small groups are where we teach high school students how to follow Jesus step-by-step.  We do this by gathering on Tuesday or Wednesday nights on our Calvary campus in gender-specific groups of 5-15 students.  Group time involves studying the Bible, sharing about your life and being challenged to take steps forward in your faith! 

For more information on small groups, email Brit Vargas at brit.vargas@calvarywestlake.org.

Our events are a chance to engage the community and include Summer Bonfires, Friday Night Lights, Christmas Lock-In, Joy Unleashed.

On Campus Ministry

We want students to not just engage with the church on Sundays, but to be actively involved in their school faith communities as well. A great way for students to do that is to attend their local Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting. These meetings, called Huddles, occur on a regular basis on campus and are a great opportunity for students to connect with others who can help them grow in their faith. 

Parents: If you want to get involved in supporting your school’s FCA through prayer, providing food or logistical support, please email high school ministry on campus staff member J.D. Laske, and more.at jd.laske@calvarywestlake.org.



Baptism is a celebration of your death to sin and new life in Jesus Christ!

Who Should Be Baptized?

In Scripture, the act of baptism quickly follows an individual’s decision to trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation (Acts 2:37-41; 8:35-39;10:47-48). After you have professed your faith in Jesus Christ for salvation, you are ready to obey Jesus’ command to be baptized and publicly identify yourself as a follower of Jesus Christ. We baptize high school students throughout the year in the Calvary adult services, in high school services and in the ocean at summer bonfires, and we love getting to celebrate with them! 

If you are interested in more information on baptism or if you want to get baptized, email Aaron Kajumba at aaron.kajumba@calvarywestlake.org.

International Mission Trips

We encourage students to take their next step in applying for one of our HSM mission trips. We take trips each year to Mexico, Uganda, Ukraine, and the Dominican Republic, and believe that this is our opportunity to take the Great Commission seriously in taking the Gospel throughout this world. More information about our trips can be found here on our HSM Mission Trip page, and if you have any questions about our trips feel free to reach out to our administrative assistant Courtney Lopez at courtney.lopez@calvarywestlake.org.

Winter Camp

Every winter we have the opportunity to take students up to Hume Lake for winter camp, where we partake in a weekend of worship, recreation, and Biblical teaching. Winter camp is a perfect place to get away from normal life for a weekend, enjoy the beautiful campus of Hume lake, and even see snow if you’re lucky!


Summer Camp

HSM Summer Camp is a week long camp open to any student in grades 9-12 and this year only the class of 2021, and is designed to give students the best week of their summer. This year we are going to camp at Hume So Cal! Summer camp has a focus on recreation, worship, and teaching, and we use this platform to encourage students to take their next steps with Jesus.
