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.
Teaching Pastor & Tech Lead
Andy is the tech nerd with the mostest! Don't let his snazzy degree in tuba performance trick you - he is also a pastor and brings a ton of experience and heart to the team! Andy has a masters degree from Point Loma Nazarene University (and his Tuba BA from Azusa Pacific). Andy and his lovely wife Sarah have two fantastic boys who aspire to be musicians like their dad (and professional Lego testers).
Online Campus Host & Media
Kimie has been loving the Chico community here at East Ave Church for the past 15 years. She has a hunky husband, John, and 3 spicy little girls. When she's not chasing a 2 year old, you can usually find her planning her next super nerdy cosplay or dreaming about Disneyland.
Pastoral Assistant & Guest Services
Chanel loves on our church family so well and has been running the entire children's department without breaking a sweat for the past 3 years. She recently took the position of Pastoral Assistance, and is killing it! She and her husband Chris have their hands full - 3 teenage boys who keep them on their toes, and a sweet little girl (who we know is actually the boss of that whole posse!)
