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 recently (finally!) completed his seminary education (Talbot School of Theology, 2013). Last year Jesse and his wife felt God leading them into urban/Asian ministry at Sunset Church, and they are extremely excited to join the work God is doing. When he's not leading bands, or studying the Bible, Jesse spends most of his free time with his beautiful wife, and their three kids. They often walk, hike, eat...or even sleep together. Recently they have become addicted to Disney's Frozen, and have simply decided to "Let it Go."
