Quest is a Christian ministry serving in the Antelope Valley and surrounding communities focused on discipleship and evangelism. This focus stems from our core belief that Jesus commanded each individual believer to action. Our goal is to remind and equip Christians to begin again the journey of reaching out with the good news of Jesus Christ and to do it in networks of discipleship relationships. We hope you will join us in this endeavor as we fulfill our God given opportunity to participate in the “Great Commission" as found in Matthew 28:18-20.
As we have sought to call believers back to the Bible, we have also seen the importance of preparing ourselves to be able to give an answer for the hope that lies within us. Since the inception of Quest Ministries we have put an emphasis on providing apologetic training to believers seeking to commuicate thoughtful and Biblical answers to those who have true intellectual questions.
We like to define the making of disciples as intentionally choosing to take spiritual responsibility for another person. That is why we focus on one-on-one relationships. When we personally invest the truth of God's Word into the hearts and minds of other believers, we’re making a lifelong impact and fulfilling the final command that our Lord Jesus gave us.
As Christians we follow Jesus' example when we have a true heart for the lost (Luke 19:10). This begins by prayerfully reaching out to our unsaved friends and family members and then intentially cultivating and nurturing meaningful relationships with those around us. We believe this ministry to the lost is most effective when it occurs in our everyday lives, instead of during scheduled events and programs.

"Quest Ministries is all about investing in people through discipleship, evangelism and caring enough to ask the tough questions."
Mike Rienholdson - Retired, Chevron
"Quest Ministries is dedicated to training Christians to learn, understand, and share their faith. Too many Christians dedicate themselves to earth-side rewards. Let Quest rescue you from the wasted life. Pay the price and get involved. You will be satisfied and God will be glorified."

Mario Gonzales - Medical Worker
"My wife and I were college students when a mutual friend of ours invited us to Dave's house. We met Dave and his family that evening. What impressed us most about him was his sincerity and honesty about sharing the Gospel. It was very refreshing and compelling. We both feel that we walked away that night with tools that have made us more bold and loving in sharing the good news of Jesus Christ"

" I used to think that I could find meaning and purpose with my friends, drinking all the time, spending money, or jumping out of air planes as an Army Ranger. But all those things left me empty"
