What to expect.

Group Worship & Teaching

Led by members of the Christ Church Worship Team, group worship allows students to focus and reflect before the lesson or small groups.

Small Groups

Small groups allow students to talk about issues with their peers and adult leaders in a safe and judgment free setting.

Special Events

Whether they are just for fun and fellowship or centered on building your faith, special events are a key part of the CCStudents ministry.


Camps encourage students to escape from the worries and stress of their everyday lives and refocus around their faith in Christ.

Student Pastors

Pastor Juan grew up in Florida before his calling to ministry led him to rest in North Carolina. He was, and is, passionate about all sports but soccer is at the core of his sports love, which he played all through college. He studied at the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago where he received his Bachelor in Pastoral Studies with a minor in Bible and Theology. He was called to Christ Church in Hickory where he now lives with his wife Andrea and their two children “the twins”.

He enjoys the home he and his wife have created in this extended community and embraces it as theirs. Catawba, Iredell, and Alexander Counties have grown to hold a special place in his heart. Pastor Juan is thrilled to get to serve the amazing people within this region of North Carolina.
Pastor Juan Soler, Lead Student Pastor
Jacob Slagle, Statesville Student Pastor
Jacob grew up as a military child moving all over the globe. While moving with his Christian parents and brother, Jacob was always involved in exploring new territory, joining activities in his local church, and playing sports like football, baseball, and basketball. At the age of 17, God showed him the way and Jacob committed his life to Jesus. Jacob always had aspirations of playing football in college and was recruited by Lenoir-Rhyne University where he played for 5 years.

 Between 17 and 19 years of age, God called Jacob to be a Mental Health Counselor and Student Pastor. In preparation, he proceeded to acquire his Bachelor's degree in Religious Development with a Minor in Psychology. He then pursued a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. He has worked as a Counselor for three and a half years at Pediatric Advanced Therapy and continues to treat kids and families daily which he views as another avenue of ministry. This gives him the opportunity to serve the needs of hundreds of families in the Iredell County area. Jacob lives in Statesville and enjoys disc golf, gardening, and spending time with friends.  He is excited and honored to serve and shepherd the youth ministry at the Statesville Campus.
