L.A. Naz Students

A Word of Thanks from L.A. NYI President, Jasmine Velasco:

Hello Los Angeles District and a Happy New Year!
I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the entire LA District for the encouragement and prayers to NYI this past year.

I would also like to give a special thank you to our amazing district office staff Shay Pierson and Jeff Cao and extend my appreciation to the entire NYI council for the leadership and vision this past year: Luke Petticord, Carol Alvarez, Kassy Fitzpatrick, Rene Santos, and Jeffrey Godinez.

NYI ended the 2023 year with a District All-Nighter! On December 15, 2023, 113 youth and leaders across the district gathered together for a fun event filled with no sleep, Laser Tag, Go-Karts, mini golf, ice-skating, glow in the dark Dodgeball, and a time for worship and prayer for all the youth on our district.
Thank you to all the churches that supported by attending:
  • Alhambra
  • Newhall
  • Lancaster
  • Camarillo
  • Camarillo Spanish
  • Santa Barbara
  • Glendora
  • Rosemead
  • La Puente
  • San Fernando
  • Santa Monica Spanish
  • Fillmore
  • Westchester

I am excited to see how God will continue to work across the Los Angeles District this upcoming year! I am encouraged that God will continue to unite us, give us vison, and leadership to empower the Youth of this District. My hope is that we continue to invest in our Youth.

In Christ,
Jasmine Velasco
Los Angeles District President

Growing together.

Whoever you are, wherever you're from, you are welcome here.

In Evangelism, we are called to BE God’s light in the dark and ignored places of our world. We are to BE a faithful example of God’s unconditional love. In BEING in Christ and BEING with others, we allow the Holy Spirit to work through our lives and we trust God with the results.

Through Discipleship, we journey together with other believers as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus. As we DO life together, we learn what it means to talk together, serve together, sacrifice together, fall and get back up together. We DO the hard work of becoming more like our Savior, living surrendered lives in community.

In Leadership Development, we challenge and empower youth and their leaders to GO out into their communities as models of Christ’s servant leadership. We cannot afford to wait until we think we know enough; we must GO now, learning along the way.

What's Coming Up...

Meet the team.
