Hello there! My name is Riley Rath, and as the Next Generations Pastor, my role is to oversee all the ministries that help spiritually raise mature disciples of Jesus, nursery through college! My position extends across disciplines as much as it does among age groups, resulting in a schedule that includes dreaming of the future, leading worship, training and teaching, and ample amounts of care and prayer for others. I absolutely love diving deeper into my relationship with God and it is my passion to help others do the same, so that as the people of God we can love others and show them just how much God loves them. Over the past few years, Jesus has been showing me the depths of his compassion, faithfulness, and presence in my life, and been encouraging me to explore how many ways I can experience his goodness, both alone and with others. I am excited to be at a church like CCC, a church that cares about the local community and embraces anyone that walks through the front doors.
I can be reached via email (email@example.com) or for emergencies at my cell phone (9257085521). I value building relationships one on one, so always feel free to walk up to me after church on Sunday to schedule a time we can get together, though usually Mondays are a Sabbath and off-limits.
I hail from the Bay Area, where my mom and dad currently reside, with two siblings on the east coast. I graduated from Biola University in 2013 and Denver Seminary in 2018. I am recently married to my beloved bride Lauren, and we love thoughtful conversations and good food.
