The Youth Ministry of City Life Chruch




Regen is City Life Church’s ministry for all the middle school, high school students of our city. Our goal is to see God work radically, powerfully and dramatically in the lives of young people, and to see this generation filled with a defining passion for Jesus Christ.  
Right now, during COVID-19 we’re staying connected via our Life Groups as we move things online. Plus, we’re going to be regularly posting devotions and encouragements to you throughout the week. For more updates make sure you are following Regen Church on Insta.



Barrie & Natasha Thiessen


Barrie grew up in City Life Church, and graduated from Highroad in 2004, before spending three years in The Master’s Commission. He married Natasha, the love of his life, in 2008. Barrie came on staff at City Life Church to be the Pastor of Regeneration, our youth and university age ministry, in August 2010. Barrie and Natasha are passionate about seeing young people equipped to influence their generation, and seeing many souls won because of the young people in City Life Church. They have a beautiful little girl named Scarlett and a manly little son named Jax. Barrie loves sports and enjoys a good diet Pepsi or vanilla bean frappe from Starbucks. Natasha has a passion for worship and dance, and a love for musicals.


Dayton & Jayden Nerling


Dayton grew up at City Life Church and has been attending Regen since he was in the seventh grade. He graduated from Chilliwack Senior and then spent a year in our Masters Commission discipleship program. In February 2019, Dayton married his wife Jayden and together they continued to serve as volunteer leaders in our youth ministry. In the summer of 2018, Dayton took his Regen leadership to a new level and joined our staff team. He now works alongside Pastors Barrie & Natasha to help grow and impact the lives of our youth here at City Life and our community. Dayton and Jayden love being in the great outdoors and doing life with people. They are passionate about seeing youth make the decision to follow God with their whole hearts and love to watch as God shapes their lives.

This year we have made the difficult decision to cancel Regen Conference.  It will be the first time in a long time where we don’t gather together.  Regen has always been one of the highlights of our year and we’re sad to have to cancel it, but your health and safety is a top priority of ours.

 We remain as committed as we ever have been, to see young people encounter God in a powerful way, and inspired to fulfill the purposes of God in their lives, for their generation.  With that in mind, our hope is that we will be able to host our youth conference again in October 2021, and we hope that we will see you there!
