In Surge, we strive to create an environment that takes God seriously, all while having some serious fun! We believe that God is already at work in children’s lives, so we’ve provided a place where they can experience all He’s doing. Our desire as a ministry is to take the foundational “Sunday School” stories and supply a framework of kingdom principles that they can latch onto and live by. With your help, we wanna see transformed kids transforming our world.

Director 4th-6th Grade
I grew up at North Coast Calvary Chapel and my mother Debbie Walton (The director of Sports Ministry) would bribe me to help out at Kids Games with a Caramel Macchiato. Since then, I ran off to the mission field with an organization called YWAM (Youth With a Mission). Through the years I was in YWAM, I developed a very real and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I fell in love with serving Him and following Him around the world.
Church has always felt like home to me. It’s not only where my relationship with God began and blossomed, but it’s also where I grew in my deepest friendships, and was challenged to be a part of something bigger than myself. I studied Studio Art at UCSD, did a discipleship training school in YWAM, and have been working with kids since I was a kid myself. I love getting to share church with our 4th-6th Graders! I love getting to be the person who connects leaders with kids and trains volunteers on how to introduce kids to deeper friendships, deeper faith, and how to have a servants heart. If you’re interested in being part of the team, I’m the girl to get you connected! Call me, text me, email me, and I’d be honored to meet you, and walk along side you as a future leader!
4th-6th Grade Administrator
I have grown up attending North Coast Calvary Chapel and it has always felt like my second home. It has been a blessing for my family to be apart of the uplifting community here, where I have gained many friendships and support over the years. While attending Biola University, I grew in knowledge of my faith and my personal walk with the Lord was strengthened. God has given me a passion for working with children and to help support and encourage our future leaders, with Christ as the ultimate example. It is so important for them to get connected at a young age and pursue their relationship with the Lord. If you would like to get plugged in, or sign up for our newsletter, feel free to contact me anytime! I would love to meet you!
