Meet the team.
Ron came to Chico as the teaching pastor in the summer of 2002. He spent a decade as a youth pastor in the Pacific Northwest and is a graduate of Northwest Nazarene University. He has a lovely wife, Susie, two gorgeous adult daughters, two adorable grandkids that he spoils rotten, and a delightfully neurotic dog named Tater.
Andy joined the team here at Hope Commons in 2020. Andy has been serving in ministry for over 18 years and loves the Church. He has a master's degree from Point Loma Nazarene University, and a BA in music from Azusa Pacific. Andy and his wife Sarah have two fantastic boys who love baseball and videogames.
FAMILY LIFE PASTOR
Sam heads up our small-group program, Life Labs. He also leads the youth group, and he and his wife, Harmony, provide visionary leadership for Serenity, our twelve-step recovery ministry. Sam is used to watching the Oakland A's never win the last game of the season.
Chanel loves on our church family so well and has been running the entire children's department without breaking a sweat for the past 8 years. She and her husband Chris have their hands full - 3 boys who keep them on their toes, and a sweet young lady (who we know is actually the boss of that whole posse!).
