About City Lights Student Ministry

City Lights is a student ministry for 7th – 12th graders that are bold in their walk with Christ and who have chosen to be the Light in a dark world! Our goal is to make All-In disciples for Christ by equipping our students with practical and spiritual tools to live a God purpose life. We walk alongside our students in their everyday life to give the support and encouragement they need.

Meet Our Youth Pastor

Angela Drayton was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida and now resides in Richmond, Virginia. She is the wife of Ro’Verto Drayton and together they have three growing boys.

Raised in a Christian home early gave her life to Christ at a young age and truly began to live life as a believer in her early 20’s. Growing up Angela always desired an adult friend that she could do life with, through the tough and exciting times in her life. Lacking this experience was the catalyst that lead her to serve in youth ministry.

Her passion to help shape and develop youth in their everyday life has lead her to serve in youth ministry for over 15 years. She was a leader in Young Life & Wildlife for several years in Jacksonville, Florida. She is excited to continue building the youth ministry and watching the students grow in their walk with Christ and life at City Church.
