Jesse joined Sunset Church in April 2014. He grew up and spent the majority of his youth in Orange County. After some family struggles and rocky teenage years, Jesse attended a youth summer retreat and was struck by the forgiveness and love found only in Jesus. He felt the call to pursue pastoral ministry especially where it intersects with music, theology, and technology. He graduated with a degree in Music in Worship (Biola University, 2008), and also completed his Master of Divinity degree in Pastoral and General Ministries (Talbot School of Theology, 2013). Over the last three years, Jesse and his wife Cassidy have enjoyed ministering in an urban/Asian ministry context at Sunset Church. Recently they have been feeling the call to church plant and are praying for God's guidance and direction. Jesse and Cassidy are also passionate about discipleship, evangelism, and parenting. When he's not leading bands, or studying the Bible, Jesse spends most of his free time with his beautiful wife, and their four children, or weightlifting at the gym. They often walk, hike, eat...or even sleep together (but not as much as Jesse would like).
