My name is Ryan Delamater and I am the Students Pastor here in San Clemente. My wife Maria and I have 3 kids. 22, 20 & 12. We even have a grand baby who is 3! 

Parenting can be crazy and can make you want to stick your tongue out at life like this photo of me.

When it comes to influencing the life of a JR. High student there is one thing that we know for sure. The person who has the most influence and impact on your child is you, so we want you to know that there are people in your corner cheering you on, us! We are your biggest cheerleaders. As you navigate these crazy two years we want you to know three things:

There is Hope. We're here to help. We desire harmony for your family.


Each weekend someone from our staff will be available to meet with parents. Whether you have a question about our ministry, junior high development, or simply need prayer, we want you to know that we are here for you. You will find us at pop up tent, come and say hi!


Not only are we your biggest cheerleaders, but we're here to help. Below you will find resources that will give you further insight into the jr. high years. We recommend these Parent Resources here WEBSITES  & RESOURCES


Our goal in SSM is to help you make the most out of the time with your family because we know your time is valuable. Our vision is to help you champion the time and moments in your every day lives as your child grow.

TIME - The most valuable resource we possess is...time. Creating intentional time in the rhythm of everyday life to talk about Christ is a major win. 

MOMENTS - Junior High & High School Students love to have fun. Take advantage of the fun and teachable moments that happen spontaneously in our everyday.

We recommend these MEMORY MAKERS as well
