home team


The AMP Home Team is the backbone of the student ministry at Central Christian Church in Portales, NM. It consists of parents, and adult volunteers that faithfully serve and lead our students. This is done through our weekly AMP sessions at the Christian Campus House, other events we hold such as Lock-Ins and Mission trips, and through one-on-one discipleship. We are passionate for the presence of God and strive to make our youth group feel like family!

AMP is part of the local movement that we have branching out from Central Christian. We are calling out to a generation to be in a frantic chase of an amazing God who wants a REAL relationship with us. This is a youth ministry where students can find friends AND family. Our weekly gatherings are marked by intense study, life changing messages, and entertaining games. There are so many things that compete for the attention and time of this generation, yet the greatest is the uncreated God of the universe!! There is a place for you to lead at AMP, come encounter Jesus and help us equip a generation of world changers!


  • We have a passion for the Presence of God, and we believe that the strongest connection we have with Him is through Prayer. Prayer is the center of everything that we do!
  • We seek to make sure that our youth group feels like family and that connections are formed in such a way that we will grow in Christ together!
  • God visits those who are on FIRE for him. Those are the ones that have tasted of God and long for more of Him and His purpose!
  • We know that God reveals himself to people who pray, and draw near to him. In view of that, we want to carve out a time weekly to be with God in prayer for our kids.
  • Our mission is based on Jesus’ command! He told us to take the Gospel to all people. The destiny of every person matters to Jesus. This year we vow to focus our time, energy, and resources to win people to Jesus and to spend ourselves on the behalf of others!
