Youth Ministry Leadership Team
Gabby Hrit - Youth Director
DpYouth Purpose Statement
The goal of DpYouth is to reflect the love of Jesus to teenagers so that He can redeem them to live for the glory of God in their communities as they mature in faith and boldly proclaim the gospel.
Here at DPC, we believe that youth are not just the future of the church, they are the church now! Our goal as leaders is to love, serve, and guide our students as we pray that Jesus leads them into saving faith. Our ministry is comprised of about 15 students from San Francisco and the Bay Area. We gather on Fridays from 7-10pm. Every meeting involves a time to hang out and catch up on each other's week, a game, extended time in prayer, and a lesson straight from the Bible. Sometimes we order pizza. (Real pizza. Not Pizza Hut.) Our goal as a group is to get closer to Jesus so we can love and serve those around us for real.
We meet at 65 Dorland in San Francisco. Everyone is always welcome and we would love to see you sometime! We also give rides home when we're able to, so let us know what part of the city or surrounding Bay Area you live in and we can probably get you back home in our youth van. Just email Gabby if you'd like a ride at email@example.com

What will we do at youth group?
Every youth group involves playing in the gym and hanging out, a game, and a lesson. Every month we have an extended time of prayer from 9-10pm where we split up into groups to pray for each other and talk about what's going on in our lives.
Come to Evangelism Training
We take seriously the call to equip our students to be disciples who make disciples. Click here for info on our evangelism training that will run from March 5-June 25, 2017.
Who are our youth leaders?
Gabby Hrit - Youth Director
Gabby is a native San Franciscan who is passionate about student ministry and the place it has in the Kingdom of God. She loves spending time with teens as she teaches, mentors, and learns from them, and trusts Jesus to impact their lives as His Word is taught and lived out. Her favorite food is french fries and she's always up for soccer or an X-Files marathon. In 2015 she got married to a UCSF scientist so she never has to do math again. (For people who just gasped, that's a joke.)
Isaac Coston - Youth Ministry Volunteer
Isaac is an intern at Dolores Park Church who loves spending time with students, playing drums, and secretly singing while he makes dinner. He has an older brother and three younger sisters, so he knows the drill when it comes to conflict resolution. Isaac cares deeply for teens and the issues they face on the daily, which has led him to intentionally mentor teenage guys here at DPC. You can find him on an average weekday either at City College of SF or around DPC fixing something.
