Attendees say...


"Christian Adulthood 101 provided me with a renewed sense of ‘true north’ in my work. It re-centers the church on Christ."

— Ryan Lunde, College Pastor - EV Free Fullerton

“The talk Peter Gross gave to our families was more than inspiring, but deeply impactful. After only an hour and a half, I saw tangible breakthrough in the dynamics between parents and students— they laughed together, cried together, prayed together and for each other. What a blessing this was for our ministry."

— Natalie DeAngelo, Student Ministries Director - Influence Church

“Our youth group will never be the same. Through Wheatstone, my students and I have changed for the better; we’ve begun to pursue Christ more earnestly and excellently. I’m so grateful for all that God has done and will continue to do through them."

— Joshua Nordstrom, Journey of Faith Bellflower

“In my 50 years as a Christian – a majority of those years in teaching, discipling, and mentoring, this stands near the top in workshop experiences. Thank you for a stimulating and inspirational day!"

— Marolin Stempson, Santa Margarita Community Church

“A vital message for youth ministry today."

— Joshua Griffin, CEO of Download Youth Ministry & Former Youth Pastor - Saddleback Church

About Wheatstone

Wheatstone Ministries is a 501(c)3 non-profit based in Fullerton, California that invites youth into Christian adulthood. We believe that youth ministry is the American church’s front line, and that, as a result, youth leaders have some of the church’s most vital jobs—they aren’t the second-class church workers that many have taken them to be. So, we provide youth pastors and leaders with live trainings, lectures, and resources that treat them with respect and equip them to meet today’s challenges. In a word - we train you to invite your youth into Christian adulthood.
