of Restoration Church RI


REZ Youth meets every Thursday night at 7p in the Youth Center @ the end of the parking lot of the North Providence Campus.

It is a place where youth between the ages of 12 and 18 can come and hear the Truth with relevance and credibility, develop real relationships with God and each other, reach their community, develop into the person God wants them to be, and blend their talents and abilities together with other youth to be used by God.

Youth Pastor, Josiah Callender

Youth Pastor:

Hey, I’m Kristen. My husband, Brandon, and I got married on our front lawn in May 2020. We have a beautiful one year old daughter named Adoniah, and a soon to be son coming in September!

I started attending Restoration church when I was 12 years old, quickly integrating into the youth group and later joining the worship team as a keyboardist and vocalist. I have been a part of the youth and worship ministries here since then.

I had a small hiatus when I attended Northpoint Bible College, graduating in 2019. There, I got a degree in Biblical Theology and Music. I also led the traveling worship team, and worked as the school’s Media Director.

I have been working with different youth and children’s ministries for 13 years now. My desire is to see young people realize that they have the ability and potential to live the fulfilling life God has planned for them. My favorite thing is watching our teenagers have experiences with the Lord and gain confidence in themselves.
