Vineyard Student Ministry Mission Statement


To engage young people in the pursuit of falling passionately in love with Jesus and to disciple them as they become more like Him.

The Leaders

Greg Hamm

Greg has a passion to see the next generation equipped for ministry in the real world. Greg is an enthusiastic and energetic leader who longs to see the Kingdom of God come through the youth. He believes this is possible through an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ and challenges youth to pursue Jesus passionately. Greg loves Jesus, his wife Whitney and three kids, Aaron, Alexa and Riley. He is a self proclaimed foodie that cannot say no to coffee dates.

Melissa Kuse

Melissa Kuse has been leading at YOUth since spring of 2016. Growing up in various places throughout BC and Alberta. She has been attending the Vineyard church for 20 years and she knows the distinct challenges girls face in this unique town. Melissa worked at McDonald’s and was Greg’s boss back in 2003. Now an elementary school teacher, she has a passion for kids and for the great plans God has for each child of His.

Steve Reems

Steve has jumped into youth ministry with both feet since 2017. Working hard his whole life to provide for his future and family, Steve had a radical encounter with Jesus in April 2016. His own efforts, accomplishments and savings did not give him the happiness and comfort he craved. God got his attention and refocused his life in a powerful way. Steve desires every student to realize Gods plan is the best plan and to pursue Him wholeheartedly.
Steve is married to his lovely wife Chantel and have two young kids, Liam and Holly
