  • Jill jodie

    Family ministries Director

    When Jill began serving at Chapel in 2010, you might have noticed a special affinity for construction paper, scissors, and tacky glue.  Her crafty side was harnessed through children’s outreach with Chapel’s VBS and leading the children through dynamic lessons and playful activities on Sunday mornings…a total kid at heart.  Jill received her Bachelor’s Degree from Clemson University and has continued studies in Early Childhood Education fueled by her passion for working with kids.


    When a need arose for help not only in the Chapel Office but also working in Children’s Ministry, Jill was brought on staff as a Ministry Assistant.  As the enthusiasm for Children’s Ministry continued to grow, Jill eventually shifted her role out of the front office and into full-time Children’s Ministry and now has expanded this further to encompass a broader scope from the babies on up to Chapel’s teens as Chapel’s Family Ministry Director.


    Jill continues to learn and grow in her leadership through personal studies and participation in conferences such as the Orange Conference, Catalyst and additional workshops hosted by the PSWC.  When you don’t see Jill on the Chapel campus, you will likely find her out in the backcountry with her husband and three children…either backpacking, swimming, trail running, or with a pair of cross country skis on if the dirt isn’t available. 


  • Jimalene loring

    worship arts ministries director

    Jimalene has been singing all of her life. The first song she remembers singing in front of a congregation was Jesus Loves Me. She couldn't have been more than four years old standing on the stage clinging to her dad's leg. She was terrified to be in front of all those people! From that day forward she has learned to share her gift of music with others through singing with different worship bands, leading worship, and singing in celebration at weddings, retreats, and other special venues.


    She has been married to her fabulous husband since 1990. Jimalene and her husband, Brett, have two adventurous children, Lexie and Drew, who are both away at school.


    On a beautiful, sun-shiny day you can find Jimalene working in her garden. On a cold, wintry day she would like to be found knitting in a warm cozy house.


    She is excited about Worship Arts Ministry at Chapel and the great team with whom she has the privilege to serve.



  • jan duncan

    Administrative ministry assistant

    Jan has served Chapel in an administrative capacity since 2012. With a B.S. in Office Administration and many years of work experience under her belt, she manages to keep things running smoothly here in the church office and feels blessed to have this opportunity to serve others. Jan was a co-owner and office manager for a small retail sales & service business that she and her husband operated for over 20 years.


    In addition to providing administrative support to the pastors, Leadership Team and other staff, Jan is the initial "go to" person for such matters as bulletin announcements, benevolence funding, facilities use, Fellowship & Service scheduling, Communion, memorial service coordination, baby dedications, and baptisms. As Jan manages the church database and directories, updates to your personal or contact information should be forwarded to her.


    Jan likes to keep busy so has very little "free" time. But when she has completed her routine chores around the house, she is an avid reader, loves working in her garden, and especially enjoys cooking and trying out new gourmet recipes. Jan and her husband, Ken, like to travel and especially to spend time with their two children and six adult grandchildren. They also enjoy sharing their home with their many friends and family who come to visit them in God's country!

Dick Jefferson
Pastor Emeritus

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.
