This love that Pastor Don and Linda have for the congregation extends even further, to the young members of our church. Their strong support for the next generation of Christian leaders is very present in their approach to ministry. They have worked to stir the energy and talent of young adults in various ministries at Harbor Christian Center in an effort to continue vibrant, lively worship and service of a living God, while not compromising the work of Jesus Christ in our community. The result is a ministry in which the energy of youth propels the spread of Truth, enabling Harbor Christian Center to impact its community for Christ.
