Garden Young Adults

Welcome to Garden Young Adults--a place where college students, working singles, and young couples passionately pursue Jesus in unity.  We celebrate differences in culture and background, and aim to build genuine relationships for the purpose of building God's Kingdom.

Coronavirus Update:

The church is taking its first steps toward reopening with various in-person events, with current social distancing and safety guidelines in place.  Garden Young Adults are offering Community Groups as well as monthly fellowship/serving events.  Please join The Garden Church online community on Realm, so we can communicate with you and keep you updated with current information.

GYA News:

Some GYA got together recently and enjoyed a socially distanced hike through the Santa Monica Mountains in Malibu.  Thank you, Cherry Chung, for organizing the fellowship event!

We have some exciting news regarding a new serving opportunity specifically for GYA.  Led by Lois Kim, the HOV Missions is an outreach ministry to the residents at the Hope of the Valley shelters.  Read up (below) on the ministry and learn how you can get involved. (More detailed information also sent out via Realm.)

Pastor Mike Yamamoto


In our small groups, we grow in spiritual maturity by worshiping together, engaging with His Word, sharing life, and praying for each other.  However you’ll soon find that the fun and abundant life spills over into the time between these meetings!

I am leading a co-ed group on Saturday nights for post-high school aged students and young professionals. My prayer is that this group will be an opportunity to connect with God and with each other. You are welcome to join us as we travel together on this wonderful journey of life! More Info
