We strive to create an atmosphere of fun and family. We desire for Capital Youth to not only be a point of connection for a community of believers, but also a refuge for all students, regardless of the current stage of their spiritual journey. Students experience connection, worship, challenging messages, group discussion, and fun activities. Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm & Sunday Mornings at 9 & 10:30am

If your students are interested in volunteering on Sundays, we have multiple opportunities available from media, production, Capital Kids, ushering, and serving other aspects of the church. We want to help develop a culture of volunteerism while creating a sense of ownership of Capital. If interested, fill out the volunteer form at capitalonline.cc/youth. 

Trent Ellerman

High School Youth Pastor

Hey! My name is Trent Ellerman. I am married to my beautiful wife, Phina, since 2017. I have deep roots at Capital as I attended youth group when I was in high school. While attending the youth summer camp, I felt called into ministry. I knew I could use my story and life experiences to help guide students. After a year of junior college, I decided to pursue ministry through Capital’s Master Commission program. While interning, I grew one of the largest small groups. I also pursued an internship in graphic design and was hired onto Capital’s staff full-time in 2017 as the art director. I’m excited to build a leadership team and pour into our high school student’s lives starting the new year of 2023. 

Jonnie Bansuelo

Middle School Youth Pastor

Hey Friends,
I am Jonnie B. I have been a member of Capital since I was born and I have humbly served as a youth pastor since 2013. Capital has meant a lot to me over the years. I met my beautiful wife, Emily, here and now we are raising our two young sons in this place. We have been blessed to be a part of Capital and my prayer is that you know you belong here.I have a huge heart for middle school ministry. I believe this age group is one of the most crucial ministries in establishing biblical truths about identity and purpose. My hope is to partner with parents as we help develop confident Christ followers.
