Sermons

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!
