Meet our Students!

Here are our 2021 students!

Adam Fulmizi

Adam grew up in Orange County, California and has just graduated from Cal State Fullerton with a degree in music. While in college, the Lord taught him what it means to surrender to Him and gave many opportunities to preach the gospel. As he transitioned into his after-grad summer, the Lord opened the doors to be on the School of Missions team. Adam is excited to spend his summer seeking God, learning about His heart for missions, and striving to be gospel centered in all he does.

Aleah Vanrenterghem

Aleah is twenty-one years old and will be taking part in CSOM summer of 2021. She is originally from Portland, Oregon but would consider herself a pilgrim for the Lord, simply obeying His leading in life on Earth until she is home in Heaven. Her heart was burdened for those who do not know His Gospel when she grew in her relationship with Yahweh during her time at Calvary Chapel Bible College. The Lord led her to join CSOM based on a mutual love and passion for the obedience of God’s purpose for His church to reach out to those who are lost in all people groups.

James Albano

James Albano was born in Southern California into a Catholic family. James had an understanding and reverence of God, but little relationship with Him or His Son. Attempts were made to develop this relationship, yet did not consistently begin until God healed personal hardships six years ago. Through much grace and blessing God brought James to CCSG where he realized the immense need for the Gospel worldwide. James is open to how God may want to use him, and desires to spread the love of Christ which has transformed his life.
