WHO WE ARE

Kaleo Youth Ministry is a youth program based out of First Presbyterian Church of Ocala.

Kaleo(cah-lay-oh) is the Greek word for “to call or invite.” That’s why our vision statement is: We are calling others to Christ, and encouraging them onward. 

WHEN AND WHERE:

Sunday Nights 5:30-7:30pm @ First Presbyterian Church of Ocala

Every Sunday Night, 6th-12th graders gather in a Christ filled environment where they get to hang out with other students their age, hear a practical and relevant message that equips them with the Gospel, and they get to break down the message in Gender and Age specific small groups.

WHOSE IN CHARGE:

Sam Pettersen is our Director of Youth Ministry. Sam is married to his best friend Apryl for  4 years, and they have been involved with youth ministry for almost 10 years. Sam is a born and raised Okie, and when he’s not hanging out with students he’s working on film. Sam is a content author for DYM and YouthMin.org, where he makes ministry resources for youth pastors all over the nation. If you ever need to reach Sam you can email him at spettersen@fpcocala.com.
