Pastor Jefferson (PJ) came out of retirement in early '09 to serve for a year as interim minister at the Chapel and has continued part time as an Associate.
He brings to the church over forty years of leadership, the majority of that time in San Francisco as Senior Pastor of an inter generational, multi-ethnic, economically diverse, and culturally varied church community.
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, he received training at Seattle Pacific University (BA Psychology) and Fuller Theological Seminary (MA Biblical Studies).
Assisting at the Chapel with preaching and small group development, Pastor Dick is driven by two questions, "Have we really become Christians yet?" and "If individuals were looking to see Jesus today, would they see Him in us?"
Dick and his wife Linda have four children and ten grand kids. For change of pace Dick reads, rakes needles, and kayaks in local lakes.
Ezekiel 34, John 10, and I Peter 5, along with O. Chambers "My Utmost for His Highest", have given vision and purpose to his personal and pastoral life on a daily basis for many years.
He delights in inviting you to be planted in Christ, to grow in relationships, and to be fruitful in serving others.
PJ retired... again... at the end of 2016 after another 8 years of faithful service.
