Interim Pastor-Teacher
Contact Pastor Jay

Jay returns to Calvary Bible Church after a 13-year hiatus of pastoring First Baptist Church of Weaverville, nestled up in the Trinity Alps of northern CA.  There he cut his teeth on ministry wearing the many hats required for pastoring a smaller-sized church including preaching, teaching, discipling, leader training, Biblical counseling, even worship leader and sign-changer!  He loved his time at FBCW and all that he learned and now is excited to have a more narrow focus of ministry that comes with being the Interim Pastor-Teacher here at CBC.

After making his living as an actor here in Los Angeles for over 20 years, God called Jay into full-time ministry in 2003. He became the Junior High pastor here at CBC while attending the Master’s Seminary, graduating with a Diploma of Theology in 2007. His other interests include sharing his love of acting and filmmaking with young people, fly-fishing and spending time with his family. His greatest joy is to see people learn and grow through the Word of God in the power of God’s Holy Spirit (Colossians 1:28).

Jay was married to his sweetheart, Julie on October 16, 1997 and they are proud to have 6 children and one daughter-in-law: Jack (married to Caylen), Will, Lily, Austin, Geanna and Owen. Everyone is excited about the move back to southern California and CBC, especially their dogs, cats, parakeets and chickens, who are enjoying the warm, southern California sun!
