    Celebration Academy of Spiritual Empowerment

    The mission and vision of the school is simple: TO EXPERIENCE AND SHARE THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST.

    Jesus spent three years (approximately 8000 hours) with His disciples. At the end of that time they still had issues. The idea that we can effectively disciple a congregation in one hour a week just isn’t giving our best.

    Dr William Lewis, Pastor Bill Vanderbush and others will bring academic excellence and spiritual insight into a living and vibrant experience of equipping you to walk in God’s presence and power.

    There are many free opportunities in our community to engage in learning through classes and life groups. But if you’re hungry for more, this school is for you!

            Brenden Brown

            Brenden together with his wife Jacqui are the Campus Pastors of the San Francisco Campus at Hillsong Church in the USA.

            Previously, Brenden & Jacqui were leading the Sydney Inner West location at Hillsong Church in the Inner West of Sydney, Australia. They have been involved with young adult’s ministry & were service Pastors of the Hills Campus for many years since Brenden got radically saved in his mid-twenties from a crazy lifestyle of running nightclubs and working in the fashion industry. Before moving countries they were District leaders of The Sydney Central region of the ACC (Australian Christian Churches) denomination and Brenden was the Sports Chaplain of the Wests Tigers NRL Club.

            He is now used by God in pastoring and preaching the Gospel to people of all ages around the globe and is consumed with the mission of leading people to Jesus and inspiring others to do the same. Brenden & Jacqui adore their two sons Jayden & Jentzen, & their puppy Blaze.

            Youth Leaders Application Form

            Leader Application

            We’re excited you’ve decided to join the CP Student Leadership Team! It is our prayer that you will grow and thrive in every area of your life as you link up with us. Know this: We want Jesus! Before we preach, we pursue. Before we perform, we pray. We don’t just want to do the work of God, we want to know Jesus, intimately.

            While serving with the Youth Team you will be challenged in many ways. This is more than a ministry to us. This is a community. This is a culture.

            5 Characteristics of Student Leaders:
            Every call to ministry is a call to intimacy. Prayer is the foundation of everything we do. It is not a secondary task. It is the main event! We are committed to intimacy with Jesus. We are committed to prayer.
            Bible Study
            In a day and age when false teachers are increasing and a generation does not know the truth of Je- sus, we must know and preach the word of God! We are committed to knowing the word of God. We are committed to bible study.
            Ministry will not become a show and our gifts will not be used as masks. We will link up with one another – confessing our sins, praying for healing, and encouraging one another in the faith. We call one another into obedience and the destinies that God has for us. We are committed to accountabil- ity.
            2 H’s (Humility & Honor)
            We refuse to speak against the Lord’s anointed (other leaders). We minister in the grace of God. What He has given to us may look different than what He has given to another. We build each other up. We do not tolerate gossip in any form. We will embrace an attitude of humility. We are committed to honor.
            Love for the Church
            We are a remnant of the bride of Christ, established in a local church that values The Church as a whole. We call out the greatness in all of God’s people and encourage them in the work that they have been called to do. We do not bash, belittle, or jump ship on our church or its members. We at- tend, support, and serve in our church. We are committed to caring for Christ’s Body.

            Comm Pres Student Leadership Commitments

              In which areas of your Christian life/leadership do you want to grow?

              What are your gifts, strengths, etc. that you have that can strengthen others?

              Please share a personal story of a time where you heard/ felt/ knew that God was communicating something to you. (This could be your personal testimony, a moment you felt that He used you to encourage someone, a time where you recognized a “God dot”, or something of the like.)


              Youth Volunteers

              Adult Volunteer Team

              Our Adult leaders live life with our students. They are committed to engage and equip students to develop an active and authentic faith in Jesus Christ through our weekly worship experiences, small groups, and one-on-one discipleship.

              SCHEDULE: Weekly
              DAYS: Monday
              TIME: 6:15 PM – 8:45 PM

              Adult Volunteer Team Meetings are held quarterly throughout the year.

              Student Leadership Team

              The Student Leadership Team exists to build trasformational culture within our Youth Ministry. Student Leaders set the standard with their radical pursuit of Jesus.


The Practical: Student Leaders serve weekly as small group leaders within the Monday night gathering, help set-up/tear down, or help the worship & technical team. All student leaders also act as relational ambassadors of the youth group. They are challenged to weekly pursue at least one other student within our community who is new, in need, or desiring deeper of friendship.

              Making disciples: we do not want our students to only do the work of God, but to also know Him intimately. Every other week the Student Leadership Team meets for one hour to grow together in prayer, biblical understanding, have their character and attitudes tested, and their gifting developed. We utilize various leadership curriculum as well as original materials.
